Visit: www.wyndhamrewards.com/southwest to enroll and view complete details on the sweepstakes and official rules. No purchase is necessary to participate.

Rapid Rewards members earn credits by flying or using the program’s preferred partners, like Wyndham Hotel Group. It takes eight round-trips, or 16 credits, to qualify for an award.

However, members can accelerate their earnings by using the Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards Credit Card from Chase, doing business with any of the airline’s other preferred partners, or by purchasing Southwest’s Business Select fares when flying.

Once a member earns an award, Southwest Airlines allows the member to transfer it to anyone. The award is free but subject to the U.S. government-imposed September 11th Security Fee of up to $10 roundtrip.
