As the integration of Southwest Rapid Rewards and AirTran A+ Rewards progresses, here are some reminders. As of Nov. 2, 2014, Rapid Rewards will be the loyalty program of the combined airline. Sept. 30, 2014 will be the last day to earn and redeem with A+ Rewards partners (Hertz, e-Miles and e-Rewards).
Existing A+ Rewards Chase cardmembers will begin earning Rapid Rewards points in late October and more details about these cardholders receiving a new Southwest Airlines branded card will be forthcoming prior to the end of October.
Your A+ credits continue to be valid and can be redeemed on AirTran flights until Nov. 1, 2014. After that date, any A+ Rewards credits that have not expired will be converted to Rapid Rewards points at a ratio of one A+ Rewards credit to 1,200 Rapid Rewards points.
