    You should be aware that for pure spend on travel, including Southwest flights, you would do better spending on a Chase Sapphire Reserve (3x points on all travel) or, for Business, a Chase Ink Preferred (3x on travel) which can be transferred to Southwest 1:1 or used on a range of other transfer partners.

    Southwest Performance Business Credit Card Application Rules

    You can apply for this card even if you already have the Southwest Rapid Rewards Premier Business Credit Card.

    Points earned from this bonus DO count towards Companion Pass.

    It's definitely a sound strategy to pick this card up in order to earn a Companion Pass (you only need the difference between the bonus offer and 110,000 points) with Southwest, which would be valid for the remainder of this year and all of next year!

    Note: You will only be approved for a Chase card if you have applied for fewer than 5 personal credit cards within the last 24 months from any issuer. (Business cards do not count against the total, except for Capital One and Discover, but are subject to the policy). Learn more about the 5/24 rule here.

Don’t Miss Out On Limited time Offers

Credit card companies regularly offer limited time increased signup bonus offers on their credit cards. They also sometimes change card benefits or otherwise change up their card lineups.
