Points for general purchases

Will I get points for making general purchases using my SouthWest Visa card?  If so, do i have to do anything special prior to making purchases? how do I know how many points and when they have posted.  I don't know how to tell what points are coming from what, is there a breakdown somewhere?

 

Thank you!

You purchase just like you always have to earn 1 point per $1 spent. 

 

Here is a link you can use to see the recent activity, over various time periods, and for each of the sources of points (credit card, flights, etc.):

The general "My Account" page will show you the total points and companion pass qualifying status.

I believe you earn 2 RR points for everytravel related purchase (plane car, hotel) made through the Southwest website, and earn 1 RR point for every other purchase. Chase will notify Southwest of the number of points you've earned and they should be added to your RR point total within a few days of the date your credit card account closes every month. 

 

It all happens automaticlly.
