    I read somewhere that after you complete a certain number of round trips you get a round of coupons.

    I honestly have never figured it out? They just seem to show-up once in awhile. I don't seem to get as many as I'd think I'd get given my level of flight (1-2 round trips a month). I also fly Business Select which gives me one for each flight and I never use them. I wonder if I redeemed them more if I'd get more? I'm no "tea-totaller", just that I have to get in a rent a car and conduct business when I arrive usually and therefore no reason to drink.

    I doubt that's a factor. The last two trips we used other people's coupons since I didn't have to worry about driving. :beer:

    Do you have the southwest visa card? I got four coupons because I have one of those. I don't thin they give out coupons when you cash in rewards to get a free ticket anymore.

    That must be it, we each have one. We don't use them, just signed up to get the 50,000 miles and will be cancelling in the future, before annual fee kicks in.
    Thanks,

    If I ever get drink coupons for the SWA Visa card, you guys can have 'em as I'm not a drinker on airplanes

    We also do not use out SW Visa card anymore and thought we would cancel at renewal. When we called to cancel, we were infomred that now SW Visa card holders get the drink coupons (value $20) AND 3000 miles (Value ~$50). So, we decided to hold onto it.

    I believe the new SWA policy is to issue drink coupons on the anniversary of you joining Rapid Rewards.

    Well I have been a RR member for a few years AND a CC holder for more than 6 months AND have redeemed points AND have paid for a few flights recently and have zero coupons to show for it. :blah:

    Well, there's your problem ... CC holder for only 6 months.
    You get the drink coupons on the "anniversary" (one year) of being a SWA CC member, in addtion to your RR membership.

    Free points

    i think once a year when you get your annual points with your renewal of credit card you get the coupons.
