Thanks to travelisfree on this Flyertalk thread for sharing a promo from Freecreditscore.com that will award 3,000 Southwest Rapid Reward points (worth $50 in Wanna Get Away Fares) after you have two paid months with Freecreditscore.com.  So, for $14.95 per month for two months = 29.90, you get two months of this credit score service and the equivalent of $50 in Southwest points.

The Flyertalk thread referenced above mentions that these points may count toward a Companion Pass.  While that is possible, these points could very well be interpreted as a bonus, and thus would not be eligible.  As long as you are good about canceling things on certain dates, this could be a way to pick up some points at a “profit” and get some credit score monitoring in the meantime (though there are cheaper places for that if that is the service you are really after in the long run).

  1. […] Freecreditscore.com is offering 3000 bonus Southwest Rapid Rewards points after you have two paid months of their service. The cost works out to $29.90 and with the bonus, can be a good option if you need a way to access your credit score for a couple of months. I currently get free credit reports through my bank, so I won’t be taking advantage. If I did, I would still probably cancel after the two months, once I had my bonus miles.

  1. Hi,
    I’m wondering if you could contact the tech support of boardingarea. The individual blogs are updating, but the boarding area of the website hasn’t updated for over 36 hours. I need to get my fix of blog updates!


    • @Want to read, they are well aware of the problem. I don’t currently have a good estimate of when it will be fixed other than they originally said 48-72 hours and we are at least 48 hours in now. it is driving me bananas too. 😉 You can follow the @BoardingArea feed on Twitter to get tweets about each of the blogs updates. Thanks for your patience and hopefully they will have it squared away soon.

  2. glad I read about the boardingarea.com update problem, I thought it was just me and I was going crazy! You can also subscribe via facebook and get the posts realtime as well.

  3. @worldtraveller2, it’s not just you, so no worries about going crazy. 😉 Good tip about Facebook as that is another good option.

    @want to read, ha ha – feel free to “take over” anytime. Thanks for the comment and hopefully all will be back to normal at BoardingArea soon.

  4. the trick with free credit score is you have to threaten to cancel and they’ll offer it to you for 7.99 a month

  5. I did the freecreditscore.com promotion for 3000 Rapid Rewards points plus 2000 Bonus points.

    After 2 months, 3000 Experian points posted as “Other” but DID NOT QUALIFY for Companion Pass. I have emailed twice to Southwest to clarify but have received no answers. And where are 2000 Bonus points? I paid for 3 months of freecreditscore.com. I did learn some from the site, but how can you trust a credit company that doesn’t honor its promotions?

    Also, I did eMiles which promptly posted 500 points to “Other” and DID qualify for Companion Pass.

    Hope it helps.
