You are right. My mistake.

Actually I think you need to:

1. Transfer your existing credits to AirTran if they are not there already.
2. Transfer enough RR points to AirTran to reach a total of 16 AirTran credits. Buy points as necessary (at 25% off in April and May) to get enough for this operation.
3. Move 16 AirTran points to Southwest to reset expiration.
4. Move 16 RR credits back to AirTran and leave them there.
5. On November 2 or shortly thereafter you will have 19200 RR points.

That depends on how you define "shortly". Southwest has said it may take "several weeks" to complete the transfer.

Likely that's the bulk of A+ credits not those transferred by Customers. As the current method seems to work rather quickly.

So just to be clear.. I am going to take my 16 A+ credits , transfer to RR to reset their expiration dates, then transfer back to A+ and let the conversion transfer automatically in November and all the points will be converted to RR and have a year to expire?

Presently my A+ 16 points expire at different dates and are all over the place from April 2015 to Dec. 2015

I expect they will have 2 years to expire.

Received an email for an extra 750 bonus points for linking accounts since I had not done so ( went on vacation last 10 days)
I have yet to transfer the A+ reward points.. will do sometime this week.

Points don't expire, @:-)

As long as you earn some NEW points within two the years all of the OLD points will remain valid.
