Register for the new Southwest Double Points promo that runs until May 15, 2013. Once registered, book and fly Southwest flights between now and May 15, and you will receive double redeemable Rapid Rewards points.

You have to register before booking a flight, so old bookings won’t earn double points.

Of course, you can cancel Southwest bookings for no fee, so if you have any previously booked Southwest flights planned for before May 15, you may want to cancel them and rebook after registering for the promotion if the price hasn’t gone up.

Normally the cheapest Southwest fares earn 6 points per dollar spent on them, which is worth about 10 cents worth of future Southwest travel. Under this promo, you will earn 12 points per dollar spent on the cheapest fares, which is about 20 cents worth of future Southwest travel. Full terms and conditions:

Southwest is also offering double tier points (toward status) on flights that originate or terminate in Milwaukee. Registering through the link above registers you for both promos. Full details:
