A 40,000 point Southwest Plus card bonus available

by on Tue October 20, 2015 • 6 Comments


The deal below has expired – there may be a better 50,000 point offer for the Southwest Plus.

(The information related to The Southwest Rapid Rewards Plus Credit Card has been collected by and has not been reviewed or provided by the issuer of this card.)

There’s currently a deal for the Southwest Rapid Rewards Plus credit card from Chase that offer 40,000 points after you spend $1,000 on the card in your first 3 months. The $69 annual fee is not waived.

Finding it is a little tricky…

  • But if you scroll down to the part that says “Not the card for you? See which Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards Credit Card is best for you” you’ll see a link that says ‘More [+]’.southwestplusnotcard
  • Click on that ‘More[+]’ link and you’ll see a side by side comparison of the Plus and Premier cards.


  • At the bottom of the comparison you’ll find an application link for the Plus with the 40,000 point deal

Is this a good deal?

Typically the Southwest Rapid Rewards Plus Card cycles back and forth between an offer for 25,000 points and 50,000 points a few times a year. So 40,000 points isn’t the biggest deal you can expect on this card, but it’s better than the 25,000 points currently being promoted and the intro spending of just $1,000 is lower than the $2,000 typically associated with the higher 50,000 point deal.

You can still get 50,000 points on the Premier and Premier Business cards, and the Premier is also available with the lower $1,000 spending requirement for 40,000 points at the link above.

But if you’re trying to hit Companion Pass and don’t want to gamble on whether a 50,000 point deal for the Plus will return before the end of this year, it’s worth giving this a shot.

The alternative is to find someone who can give you a referral that lets you apply over the phone for a Plus card with the 50,000 point deal.

Southwest has been making the lower annual fee Plus card less and less prominent lately, which might be a sign it’s eventually on the way out.

We have no word either way on that, but like any offer, get it while you can if it’s valuable to you right now.
