My colleague Christine spent much of last year attending her friends’ weddings – and the locations were scattered across the U.S., with one outside of the country. Adding to her frequent flights, she also had a family reunion in Georgia and many trips to her parents’ home in Providence, RI. She knew that every destination was to a city that Southwest flies so she made the decision to carry the Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards Premier Card.

Last weekend, I was traveling with my daughter and husband from Providence, RI to Baltimore, MD, returning from a long-overdue weekend getaway.
