    Southwest Airlines is offering a 35% bonus on purchased Rapid Rewards points through April 22, 2015. Ordinarily the cost per purchased Rapid Rewards point is 2.75 cents, though through this promotion that cost is lowered to ~2.04 cents per Rapid Rewards point. Now, I'll be the first to admit that I'm a big fan of purchasing points when it makes sense. For example, I think Alaska's current bonus offer on the purchase of Mileage Plan miles is a great deal, since you can buy miles for ~2.11 cents each, which can efficiently be redeemed on some great airlines. And I've also certainly purchased Avianca LifeMiles and US Airways Dividend Miles (RIP) in the past.
