    Just in case you have been saving those coke rewards up. I went on my coke rewards this morning and you can cash in your rewards points (1425 points) for $50.00 Southwest gift cards. Of course I find this a day after I already booked my airfare but hopefully it will help someone else out.

    Noticed this over the weekend, but they have been out of stock every time I checked. Limit 2 per account, but they never expire - as long as Southwest doesn't expire!

    Sorry about that, I did not try to actually get them since I already have my airfare. You would think they would remove the selection if it is not available. Or maybe they just enjoy teasing us. LOL

    I know in the past they have added more items to out of stock selections, so I am going to keep checking!! Every little bit helps, right?

    I wonder if you can use these for alcoholic beverages on the flight or just airfare.

    That would be nice, but I think I would need more than the $50.00 card to get me through a flight. :rotfl:

    This is what it said on the Southwest web site:
    Where can I redeem a southwestgiftcard?
    A southwestgiftcard can be redeemed at southwest.com, through Southwest Airlines Reservations, or at Southwest Airlines Ticket Counter locations.

    You would think that they would start accepting them on flights pretty soon since they are starting the following on September 9th:

    "a simple swipe takes care of all your inflight purchases. We'll still offer the free snacks and soft drinks you love, but for the few onboard items for which we do charge, like beer, wine, cocktails and energy drinks, we'll accept only the Rapid Rewards credit card from Chase or other major credit/debit cards and drink coupons.
    Relax and keep your cash."

    Dangit!:mad: Everytime a reward comes along that I would benefit from, it is out of stock before I can redeem. DARN!!!!:mad: Maybe we can keep each other updated when these become available again. I would love to have two of them. I have 12,000 pts that I need to spend before the end of the year.

    I'll try to check daily to see if the stock is replenished and keep you guys posted.

    I haven't been looking faithfully but I did last week and I didn't see anything there. I could use this one and figures out of stock. If I see it in stock because I will be looking constantly i will post
