Card Features and Benefits:

    This is the mid-tier Southwest credit card which offers you 6,000 Southwest Rapid Rewards points each card anniversary.

    Southwest Rewards Plus Earn Rate

    Get 2x points on Southwest flights and 1X on everything else.

    Southwest Companion Pass

    This card is especially useful in conjunction with a new personal Southwest credit card to earn the Southwest Companion Pass for two years with just two credit cards.

    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 a Chase Sapphire Preferred (2x points on all travel) which can be transferred to Southwest 1:1 or used on a range of other transfer partners.

    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.
