This must be airline gift card discount week. First, we blogged about 10% cashback on Delta Air Lines gift cards through MyGiftCardPlus.
But this is an even bigger deal: $500 Southwest Airlines gift cards on sale for $429.99 at Costco.com! (Membership required.)
There’s a limit of two gift card purchases per member. That means you can get $1,000 of Southwest travel for about $860.
Travel purchased with gift cards should earn redeemable Rapids Rewards points and A-List status markers.
The deal expires on Sunday, March 5 — if supplies last that long. Take advantage of the sale now if you’re interested.
Does Costco.com Accept Only Visa?
While Visa is the only credit card Costco warehouses accept, their website takes pretty much everything except American Express. So, if you have to knock out some spending on a MasterCard or something, this could present a great opportunity.
The Costco Anywhere Visa® Card by Citi offers 2% back on Costco.com purchases. I bought a couple of the gift cards and paid with my Capital One Venture X Rewards Credit Card because it earns 2X points on non-bonused purchases — and I value those points more than the 2% back on my Costo card.

I’d rather pay extra and fly Delta.
