Many of the most frequent Southwest fliers have no idea what they’re missing out on
If you fly Southwest and aren’t a Rapid Rewards member, you may be missing out on first-class treatment.
Like most frequent flyer programs, it’s free to join and you accrue points whenever you fly. Southwest loyalists also appreciate less-common perks like no blackout dates, unlimited rewards seats, and that points can be earned and redeemed on the ground at partnering hotels, car rental companies, and restaurants.
But there’s a secret perk that most Rapid Rewards members don’t know about: free drinks! With a simple tweak to your online account preferences, members can earn free-drink coupons for every 10 one-way flights.
So sit, back, relax, and enjoy your flight, free drink in hand.
