Southwest Airlines 180,000 point Credit Card offers!

Southwest Airlines and Chase together have one of the most popular credit cards in the market. Southwest Airlines has a really expansive network and the combination of low fares and free luggage have won over tens of millions of fliers annually. Right now, Chase and Southwest teamed up to offer a limited time offer of 60,000 miles across their three credit cards.

Southwest Airlines Credit Card Options

Southwest Airlines has three credit cards; two are personal and one business card.

Southwest Airlines Plus Card

  • 60,000 point signup bonus after $2,000 in purchases
  • 3,000 Anniversary Points
  • $69 annual fee

Southwest Airlines Premier Card

  • 60,000 point signup bonus after $2,000 in purchases

  • $99 annual fee
  • 2x points on Southwest flights, car rental and hotels

Southwest Airlines Business Card

  • 60,000 point signup bonus after $2,000 in purchases
  • 6,000 Anniversary Points
  • $99 annual fee
  • 2x points on Southwest flights, car rental and hotels

Something important to remember. The main application page clearly states the following:

Earn 60,000 points after you spend $2,000 on purchases in the first 3 months of opening your account.* This product is available to you if you do not have this card and have not received a new Cardmember bonus for this card in the past 24 months.

The Southwest cards ARE part of the dreaded 5/24 rule, but if you don’t know what the 5/24 rule is, you probably don’t have to worry about it. In a nutshell, the 5/24 means that you’re 99.99% sure to be declined if you’ve been approved for more than 5 credit cards in a 24 month period.

Which card is the one to get?

Honestly, I don’t see much use in getting the card with the lower annual fee UNLESS you want to get all three cards. The only difference (apart from the annual fee being $30 higher) is the 3,000 points a year extra that you’ll get. Are 3,000 points worth $30? Absolutely! You can totally redeem those points for more than $30 on a Southwest flight.

Do you have a business? Then you should 100% get both the personal and the business card.

Companion Pass, here we come!

It’s simple math time! 60k + 60k = 120k. Just sign up, get approved, and meet the spend requirements, and you’ve got all the points you need for that sweet, sweet, companion pass. If you’re not familiar with the companion pass, it’s a free pass to let you pay regular price and your named companion flies FREE (well, they have to pay the taxes… but, ya know… free!)

What are you waiting for?

We don’t know how long these offers are going to last, so if you’ve been jonesing for some Southwest points and you’ve got the applications to spare, go grab these!

  1. I can’t afford the 99 dollar fee. I use Discover it for airline tickets on southwest which is all I fly.

    • For those who are looking for the companion ticket, this is a great option, just get the card twice ($198 fee) and you’ve got unlimited Southwest Flights until the end of 2018! I think that’s well worth the fee.

  2. Southwest is not offering a 180,000 point card offer. Misleading title for article.
