Deal Details

Last Edited by rakisto February 19, 2013 at 08:19 AM
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.

Call this number to get your southwest miles. The csr told me that she would manually add the points to my account if they didn't appear within one week. it did go over by a few days, but i just noticed that the points DID just post.

Deal is DEAD for SWA[/SIZE]

From an ethical point of view, bear in mind that you're basically tricking the New York Times into buying you ~$15 of Southwest points. I suspect it would work, but I don't think it would be right.
Really you're just paying $1 for NYT to have your info... No where do they state that you need to commit to an active subscription with them after the 4 weeks are up.

A lot of you need to relax. I don't doubt the OP. A lot of times with these SW deals the points post a lot sooner than the official stated dates. It all depends on the offer though. See the post below.

It looks like I only got 250 points in my Southwest account for this. They posted 3/2 and I signed up for the NYT subscription on 2/19.

Are you sure it was for this promotion and not another?

Southwest CS rep says 6 weeks to post points, or to even see any activity on your RR account, from any deals.

I doubt anyone will ever see these points. Wonder where the OP got 2 weeks....

I just called Southwest. They said the points will take 6-8 weeks to post. I think I just wasted $1.98. Took someone's advice on the thread and purchased 2 subscriptions with 2 different CC's, as I was told that would work for the same RR#. Where did 2 weeks come from OP??

In the confirmation email they sent, it says

"If you did not authorize this purchase, someone has registered using your e-mail address. Please forward this e-mail to cancel@nytimes.com and write “cancel 'emailname@emailserver.com” in the subject line."

Im guessing this email can also be used to cancel subscriptions?
