New Offer: 50,000 Southwest Rapid Rewards Points

Southwest and Chase are back with a 50,000 point Rapid Reward signup bonus offer to kick off the new year with the Southwest Rapid Rewards® Plus Credit Card.

You’ll earn 50,000 points after you spend $2,000 on purchases in the first 3 months your account is open. In our opinion, that’s a pretty reasonable minimum spend for a card that holds a lot of value—especially for domestic travel.You’ll earn 2 points per $1 spent on Southwest® and Rapid Rewards® purchases and participating Hotel and Car Rental partners, and 1 point per $1 spent on all other purchases.

If the signup bonus hasn’t already convinced you to take a look at this card, here are a few more reasons that we like Southwest Rapid Rewards travel:

No Blackout Days. The number of points you pay for a Southwest award ticket is based on the actual price you’d pay to buy a ticket. As long as there are tickets for purchase available, there are mileage tickets available. This is great for families and people who travel over holidays when domestic tickets on other airlines can be hard to come by.

No Change Fees. This is a great benefit for the indecisive and those who plan ahead and have unexpected circumstances change their plans. Southwest lets you change or cancel your flight up to 24 hours in advance without charge. If you change your ticket you pay only the fare difference. If you cancel your ticket, you have a year to use the credit.

No Baggage Fees. If you travel with bags, flying on Southwest can save you a ton of money. This is savings for all, but especially great savings for families who travel with multiple checked pieces of luggage.

The Companion Fare. Southwest flyers who amass 110,000 points in a calendar year get to choose a companion who can fly with them for free that year. We think this is one of the greatest mileage deals out there you can get if you fly domestically and travel often with the same person. And as a bonus, points that you earn through your Southwest Rapid Rewards Plus credit card count towards your companion fare earning! That means once you get the 50,000 point signup bonus and meet the $2,000 minimum spend, you’ll already be almost halfway to the companion fare prize!
