Through Nov. 1, 2012, members of Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards can earn up to 12,000 points when purchasing Marriott Gift Cards. Sixty Rapid Rewards points equals one dollar in fare credit, so the 12,000 bonus points would be worth $200 on any Wanna Getaway fare.
To get the maximum points, you would need to purchase $1,000 in Marriott Gift Cards in your choice of denominations from $100 (1,200 Rapid Rewards bonus points), $250 (3,000 bonus points) and $500 (6,000 bonus points). Bonus Rapid Rewards points will only be awarded through online Marriott Gift Card purchases at http://www.insideflyer.com/link/?7179 – The purchaser’s name must match the Rapid Rewards account number to receive the bonus points.
Bottom line: The gift card can be used for all purchases and services charged to a Marriott guest room folio such as spa treatments, golf outings as well as dining; so if you are a frequent Marriott guest, this is a promotion worth considering. There is no expiration date on Marriott Gift Cards.
