Deal Details

In the Rapid Rewards shopping portal, you can subscribe to New York Times digital subscription for 4 weeks for just 99 cents and net 1300 points for doing so.

https://rapidrewardsshopping.sout...?mids=3260

The good thing here is that SWA deposits the 1300 points at the 2 week mark at which point you can call 877-698-5635 to cancel the subscription so you don't pay the $15 after expiration.

This works out to 13.13 points per cent!

BONUS to make it even SLICKER:
Using the same rapid rewards shopping sign-in, you can sign up for two subscriptions to the NYT with a different name and credit card (your significant other?) and it will still deposit to the same RR account!

Cheers and happy flying!


Edit:
The disclaimer of "Not eligible on subscriptions cancelled prior to 120 days.", just means that accounts cancelled in the past 120 days are not eligible for this offer again.

Worked successfully for United points per Flyertalk with the same disclaimer:

Seems to be with most airlines too:

Rapid rewards shopping mall purchases do count toward your Companion Pass earning so this should count as well. See attachment.

Does this count towards the companion pass? I've found deals like telefloral and turbo tax promotions with southwest don't count towards the companion pass.

wondering this as well

yes, we all walk everywhere naked. It also makes us easily recognizable and saves us money on SD shirts.

I did AA 1500 miles. I checked UA and I only saw 900 miles.
If you are a UA CC holder and logged in, you will see the 1,400 miles offer.

This should count since Southwest mall points do count toward companion pass...

Think so, i've had southwest mall purchases go toward my CP already so I assume this is the same.

I used your link and signed up. Is there somewhere on Southwest account where we can see this pending for points? Or will it just be deposited in 2 weeks?

You should see it show up here:
https://x.rapidrewardsshopping.so...ma____.htm

in probably a week or two. It takes forever for this website to update but all of these airlines shopping portals seem to be the same.

You should however see them actually deposit in your RR account in roughly 2 weeks from signing up.

OP, you should change the title to list all the airlines. Many people would prefer to get the points in another account. I chose Delta.

Yes, it does. Not sure why the other person posted that.
