Congratulations to Luke who said: “It’s not a bad value if you don’t want to fly SWA.”
Thanks Luke for your comment and I will contact you soon to get your $50 gift card on the way to you! This really was a fun one to pop up. I hope you had a chance to read the comments from readers too as there is very good feedback.
Clearly, if you live near a SWA hub, and if you can get the free companion pass in 2014/2015, and fly SWA a ton, spending the points on tickets is dollar for dollar the best choice.
However, as others have pointed out, and me too, if you have more points than you can spend in years, they keep coming in fast, then getting some value is better than a reduced or no value (if you are hours away from a SWA hub).
Several readers like Amazon as a redemption option. Well, be sure to check back next Saturday when I will have ~$50 Amazon gift eCard on the way!- René
