Selling Southwest Rapid Reward Vouchers

Mon Feb 19, 2007 11:40 am

Is there anything wrong with selling the Southwest Rapid Reward vouchers to someone else via eBay? I've never done it, but I'm curious.

Well they are of course fully transferable, but I don't know...maybe it could be considered scalping, since you are selling it for more than its face value (which is zero)?

Many get listed on eBay but are pulled because of the above. Transferable, yes. Salable, no.

eBay won't allow selling these. Many of the listings say that they are auctioning the drink coupon booklet for X and if you win you get the trip voucher for free. My experience has been that eBay will cancel your auction. I would list it on craigslist. You lose the auction aspect, but it's person to person and you don't have to deal with Paypal and eBay fees. Keep in mind, you are really only listing in a particular area vs. to everybody, so you might want to list it in a few craigslist areas, particularly large WN "hubs".

It's not just eBay that prohibits the sale, it's Southwest. There was an article I read not too long back about a woman who bought vouchers and credits off of Craigslist and was scammed. Plus WN does have people in HDQ who watch for these sorts of things. Smart thing to do would be not to bother. Download Ding!
