Southwest has their annual back to school promotion going on right now and as of today Sears is included in that promotion. The Southwest portal is offering 9 points per dollar at Sears and gift cards are included!. So, you can technically get 18X points by buying gift cards, then buying product with those gift cards. I did just that to earn a Southwest Companion Pass. You can read that post here. It’s a subscriber only post, so if you’re not subscribed, you can do so here.
