New Southwest Business Card with 80k Bonus

The brand new Chase Southwest Rapid Rewards Performance Business Credit Card is exciting. Its benefits package is loaded, the 80,000 point bonus is huge, and it makes getting a Companion Pass easy.

If you are eligible to open a business card, keep reading. If you're not sure you're eligible, don't move on so fast. Read the linked post and make sure whether you're eligible or not, because ignoring business credit cards leaves a lot of bonus miles and points on the table. You don't need employees nor even an Employee Identification Number to be eligible.

The bonuses on all of the personal Southwest cards are tiered and the same:

40,000 Rapid Rewards for spending $1,000 within three months of opening the account
An additional 20,000 Rapid Rewards for spending a total of $12,000 within 12 months of opening the account

So if you spent $12,000 within the first year on your new personal Southwest credit card, you'd end up with at least 72,000 Rapid Rewards (40k bonus, 20k bonus, and 12k points for the spend it takes to unlock those bonuses).

Fare War: $29 Inter-Island Hawaii Flights

I'll keep this brief as to be timely, as these fares won't last.

Southwest just dropped their price on some of their brand new inter-island flight, between Honolulu and Maui, to $29, and Hawaii Airlines is playing ball. Right now you can find flights on both airlines between Honolulu and Maui, as well as Honolulu and Kona (on Hawaiian) for the super low price of $29.

I'm seeing the Southwest flights pricing at just 1,379 Rapid Rewards (and $5.60 in tax).

WOW….Get the Companion Pass Through 2019 via all Southwest Consumer Cards!

Reminder: These offers expire tomorrow, February 11. I'm not sure if that means right when the date changes--it usually doesn't--or at some point tomorrow, but if you were thinking about going for one of the Southwest cards to nail a Companion Pass for the remainder of 2019, then don't wait any longer. It's safer to apply before midnight tonight. 

All three consumer Southwest Cards' benefits packages have been updated with a limited time offer that lasts for one month.
