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. For spending $4,000 within three months of opening your new card, you will earn 30,000 Rapid Reward bonus points and a Southwest Companion Pass that will last through the remainder of 2019. As the Companion Pass is easily the best deal in domestic travel, this is an extremely generous offer. Below are each Southwest card’s offer details.

Looks like Southwest is trying to get you guys hooked! If you’re eligible for any of the Southwest personal cards (read this to figure out if you are eligible) and live in a city served by Southwest, I would 100% take advantage of what is likely to be named one of the best deals of the year.

These offers expire 2/11/19.

Remind me, what’s the Companion Pass?

The Southwest Companion Pass is a free ride for your companion of choice (with the exception of around $5.60 in taxes one way).

Bottom Line

The Southwest Rapid Rewards Plus, Southwest Rapid Rewards Premier, and Southwest Rapid Rewards® Priority Credit Card offers just got so much sweeter. Apply before 2/11/19 for any of these cards and spend $4,000 within three months on it and you’ll earn yourself a Companion Pass for the rest of this year (not to mention 30,000 Rapid Rewards).

That means your Companion of choice, which you should be able to change up to three times, flies for free except for a few dollars in taxes. Depending on how much you fly Southwest, this could be worth thousands of dollars.

Earn 60,000 bonus points after you spend $4,000 on purchases in the first 3 months from account opening. That's $750 when you redeem through Chase Ultimate Rewards®.

Just getting started in the world of points and miles? The Chase Sapphire Preferred is the best card for you to start with.

With a bonus of 60,000 points after $4,000 spend in the first 3 months, 5x points on travel booked through the Chase Travel Portal and 3x points on restaurants, streaming services, and online groceries (excluding Target, Walmart, and wholesale clubs), this card truly cannot be beat for getting started!
