I got an email from Southwest over the weekend with the subject “Get 2 Roundtrip Flights along with a $50 statement credit for EarlyBird Check-In” that advertised the best Southwest credit card offer I’ve ever seen.
The offer is for 50,000 Rapid Rewards (worth over $700 in free Southwest flights) after spending $2,000 in the first three months after opening the account. In addition, the card comes with $50 in statement credits to offset EarlyBird Check-In on four Southwest flights.

- What is EarlyBird Check-In?
The Southwest 50,000 point offers pop up every few months. They are a fantastic deal, and if you get a Southwest personal and business card at the same time with 50,000 point sign up bonuses, you can get a Companion Pass with Southwest that allows your companion to travel with you for only $5.60 one way whenever you book a ticket on Southwest for yourself.
This offer is that standard 50,000 points after spending $2,000 in the first 90 days and paying the first year’s $99 annual fee. In addition, and what’s special about this offer, is the $50 in statement credits for EarlyBird Check-In, which costs $12.50 one way.
EarlyBird Check-In guarantees an early boarding number, which is valuable since all Southwest flights are open seating. That early boarding number should mean an aisle or window, whichever you prefer, and plenty of overhead bin space.
This card also has the normal benefits like 6,000 anniversary points every time you pay the $99 annual fee going forward.
I can’t give a link to the offer because the URL of the application I got to by clicking APPLY NOW won’t load in new windows. That makes me think this offer is targeted.
However, you can try calling Chase at 800-949-5079 and giving invitation code 389069463898 to see if you can apply for this offer.
Or if you’ve applied for another Southwest card offer in the last few months, you can send Chase a Secure Message on chase.com asking to be matched to this one.
