Update: The credit card offer in this post is no longer available. This offer has ended. The new offer is 100,000 points. Check our credit card page for the latest offers.
The Southwest 50,000 point credit card is back. But you should hurry because these links probably won’t be around much longer.
Southwest 50,000 Point Credit Card
There are 3 Southwest Airlines credit cards that offer a 100,000 Southwest point signup bonus: 50,000 points after spending $2,000 in purchases in the first 3 months of opening your account. Plus another 50,000 points after spending a total of $12,000 in the first 12 months
Free Travel for 2 Years
The sign-up bonus counts towards the 125,000 points you need to get a Southwest Companion Pass. The Companion Pass lets you bring someone with you every time you travel on Southwest Airlines.
By getting two Southwest credit cards, completing the minimum spending, and an additional 6,000 Southwest points you will earn you a Southwest Companion Pass. So you and a friend can fly free for two years. You only pay airport taxes and fees of about $10.
The Southwest Companion Pass is good for the year you earned it AND until the end of the following year.
It’s a great deal for families. Because your companion can be anyone: your spouse, child, family member, or friend. Each parent can earn a Companion Pass, choose a child as their companion, and your family travels for free.
You can easily earn the 125,000 Southwest points in one week. Check out the step-by-step details in my how to fly free for two years post.
2 Cards in 1 Day
Chase doesn’t let you apply for two personal cards at the same time. But because the Southwest Premier is a personal card and the Southwest Premier Business is a business card, you can apply for both cards on the same day.
This is the best time to apply for the Southwest 60,000 point credit card if you want to earn a Southwest Companion Pass.
The sign-up bonus counts towards the Southwest Companion Pass. So getting two credit cards, meeting the minimum spending, and earning 6,000 more points lets you fly free for two years.
