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.

Writing doesn't seem to be either. You should probably remove the word "on" in your sentence because "here" indicates the location.

Anyone else not had the $1 pre-authorization released on their card? I did mine on a prepaid and it is still deducting from my available funds.

Why did you cancel today, isn't the $0.99 good for one month?

I agree. going to wait for the 1300 points, and then cancel... assuming it'll be within a month

Correction, the $0.99 is for 4 weeks. So we still have at least 2 weeks to wait for the points.

Did someone actually mention in the Wiki it might be unethical to cancel after getting points? Yeah, working every deal like this that comes up on this site could be considered unethical, but then, depends on what you define as ethical.

Sure there are deals that are unethical but how is this one unethical? You are paying .99 cents for 4 weeks regardless..

The OP said the points should post two weeks after signing up. By my count that would be tomorrow. You can cancel then or wait as the $0.99 price we paid is good for four weeks.
