By subscribing to monthly points purchases, you can lock in discounts as follows:
- 30K Plan ($51.56/Month) = 2.1 cents per point
- 40K Plan ($64.16/Month) = 1.9 cents per point
- 80K Plan ($119.16/Month) = 1.8 cents per point
While it’s possible to get better than 1.8 cents per point value from Southwest points, it’s very rare. In fact, most of the time you’ll get less than 1.5 cents per point value. You won’t even earn a travel bonus with your credit card for this spend since the points are purchased through points.com rather than through Southwest.
I can’t think of any reason why anyone would want to sign up for this “deal”. Don’t do it.
