For a limited time new cardholders earn 50,000 points (enough for two roundtrip flights) after spending $2,000 within three months on the Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards Premier Credit Card. The same offer is also available for the Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards® Premier Business Card and Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards® Plus Card, which you can find if you scroll to the bottom of the page at this link.
While this is not an offer I will personally be taking advantage of (given that I prefer to earn and redeem miles for international premium cabins), I do think this is a great option for domestic travel, both for how generous the sign-up bonus is, and the 6,000 points you receive each anniversary which justify the annual fee.
Also keep in mind that if you rack up 110,000 points in a year you’ll earn Companion Pass with Southwest, which allows someone else to travel with you for the entire year. For domestic travel that’s a value that’s tough to beat.
While this is a limited time offer it’s the third time we’re seeing this offer this year, so I wouldn’t necessarily go out of your way to apply right now since I suspect we’ll see the offer again at some point.
(In the interest of full disclosure, I earn a referral bonus for anyone approved through the above link. All are for the best available offers. Thanks for your support!)
