Where is the Southwest 50,000 Credit Card Offer?

Southwest Airlines and Chase frequently release a 50,000 point Southwest Rapid Rewards® offer when you sign up for the Southwest Rapid Rewards® Premier credit card.  Those points have a value of up to $700 in ‘Wanna Get Away’ airfare.

And sometimes the Plus and Premier Business cards get in on the 50k action as well. As of this post date, 50k is available for all 3 of the Southwest Rapid Rewards credit cards. Here are the links to the application pages:

> Southwest Rapid Rewards Premier

> Southwest Rapid Rewards Plus

> Southwest Rapid Rewards Premier Business

The Rapid Rewards Plus Business Credit Card has been discontinued.

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

You may earn one Personal and one Business offer for each card brand, so if you have the Plus personal, but not the Premier personal you could be eligible for the Premier bonus. Basically it’s possible to eventually get intro points for each of the 4 Southwest cards. If you held a card before, but cancelled, you can get another bonus for the same card if it’s been at least 24 months since you last got the deal on it.

Earn your way toward Companion Pass

While the points themselves are valuable, Southwest credit card bonuses for Companion Pass status qualification are the real draw for many.

  • Companion Pass allows you bring a companion along for free on every Southwest flight you fly for more than a year. You must pay some modest taxes and airport fees. That includes both flights you pay for in cash and flights you book with points, so your points can effectively have double the value.
  • The Companion Pass status requires 110,000 Rapid Rewards® qualifying points earned in a single calendar year (Jan-Dec), and the qualifying points can be earned via flying, using a Southwest credit card, or using Southwest hotel / car rental partners. It is valid for the rest of the year you qualify as well as the entire following year.
  • (Example: Earn 110,000 points from Feb-April 2014, you will get companion pass status for the rest of 2014 and all of 2015.)
  • If you get 2 Southwest credit cards during a 50,000 point promotion period you could earn over 100,000 points very quickly – and get you very close to the 110,000 points earned in a calendar year you need for Companion Pass.
  • Your bonus points will post with the statement that closes in the month that you meet the spending threshold for your bonus offer.  If you plan to apply for two cards make sure all your bonus points post in the same calendar year to qualify for Companion Pass.
  • As an example, if you open 2 cards in October that require you to spend $2000 in 3 months, you should wait until January to put the last of the $2,000 spend on each card so that all the points will count towards the 110,000 needed for the companion pass in the following year.
  • You wouldn’t want to meet the threshold in November, get 100,000 bonus points but NOT get to 110,000 points in that calendar year, meaning you’d have to start over on your points earning once January rolls around.

The Marriott and Hyatt options

While Southwest won’t count points transferred from a non-Southwest credit card like a Chase Ultimate Rewards card for Companion Pass, it will count points transferred from hotel partners like Marriott and Hyatt into Southwest toward Companion Pass status.

The conversion rates for Marriott points are as follows

10,000 Marriott = 2,000 Southwest points

20,000 Marriott = 5,000 Southwest

30,000 Marriott = 10,000 Southwest

70,000 Marriott = 25,000 Southwest

140,000 Marriott = 50,000 Southwest

And there are three Marriott credit cards, each with their own sign on bonuses that you can take advantage of if you’re in search of Southwest points. We keep a list of deals here, checked daily by MileCards.com. You can also transfer points from Chase Ultimate Rewards cards like the Chase Sapphire Preferred to Marriott, and then to Southwest and get Companion Pass credit.

If you have a lot of Marriott points your best deal is to get a Hotel + Air package. For example you can get 120,000 Rapid Rewards points (enough for Companion Pass on its own) plus 7 nights at any Category 1-5 Marriott hotel for 270,000 Marriott points. That’s actually cheaper than doing non-package transfers to get 120,000 Southwest points, which would cost 340,000 points, and you get the hotel nights thrown in.

Other Cards for Southwest Points

If you already have Southwest credit cards, there are other credit card offers that earn you points you can transfer into your Southwest account with no fees. It’s easy – you can see the MileCards.com guide to how it works here using the Chase Ultimate Rewards program.

You should be aware that transfers from cards like the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card don’t count toward Companion Pass. The only credit card points that count toward Companion Pass are those you earn from a Chase credit card that has a Southwest logo on it.

Below are the Chase Ultimate Rewards credit card offers with points you can transfer to your Southwest account – and you can still get the Southwest credit cards for bonuses – it’s okay to hold both.

You can use the MileCards.com CardFinder tool to see which card will earn you the most Southwest points. Just enter your spending habits and it will tell you how many points you’ll earn each year. There’s no login required and we don’t store any of your personal information.

Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card

sapphirepreferrd180> Offer details: Earn 50,000 bonus points when you spend $4,000 on purchases in the first 3 months from account opening. That’s $625 in travel when you redeem through Chase Ultimate Rewards®.

The below cards are for small business expenses, though if you are not incorporated and just one person you may still qualify – for example selling items on eBay or babysitting can be considered a business.

Ink Plus® Business Credit Card

> Offer details: Earn 60,000 bonus points after you spend $5,000 on purchases in the first 3 months from account opening. That’s $625 toward travel when you redeem through Chase Ultimate Rewards®. There may be other deals with different terms  - read here to check the status.

Offer value: Points transfer 1:1 to Southwest Rapid Rewards points.

Ink Cash® Business Credit Card

inkcash1> Offer details: Earn $200 bonus cash back after you spend $3,000 on purchases in the first 3 months from account opening. No annual fee.

> Offer value: The bonus comes in the form of 20,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points. Note, you must have an Ultimate Rewards credit card that carries an annual fee after the first year, like the Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card, Ink Bold®, or Ink Plus®, to be able to transfer points earned from a no annual fee Ink Cash® into Southwest.

    I have a couple of referrals available for the Southwest Plus Credit Card.

    Annual fee is $69

    Spend $2000 in 3 months and you will receive 50K bonus verses the 25K that is currently advertised.

    Hi Im interested in getting a Sw card. I’m very new to all this so want some help/advice. I got the 50,000 point referral and so did my wife. If we each open with the referral that’d put us at 100,000 correct? The 50,000 points come after you spend $2,000 in the first 3 months right? So then we would just need 10,000 before the end of the year to get the companion pass? Is there a way to link us and get the 100,000 points or do we each need to open our own account? How many points do you get per dollar spent?

    Reply
    1. Justin

      Also–if I open this month and spend $2,000 between May, Jun, jul and my wife gets hers (may, Jun, July) then we would get companion pass whatever month we hit 110,000 and then could start using companion pass the rest of 2015 and all of 2016?

      Reply
    2. MileCards.com

      @Justin – Unfortunately the 110,000 points need to be earned in one person’s Rapid Rewards account. That’s not tough right now since both the Premier and Plus 50k offers are available – so you could apply for one, meet the requirements, then go for the next one.

      Reply
      1. Justin

        Ok. Do you have to open, spend the $2,000 in 3 months, and get the 110,000 points all in the same year? Also, when I travel and get rapid reward points do I still get those? So 2 points per dollar on flights and then also points for the flight? Right now I don’t have a card but I have 7,000 rapid reward points? And if I just choose to open can I add a second card for my wife?

        Reply
      2. Justin

        If I opened both would I need to keep them both open for the whole time of the companion pass and then could cancel one?

    Hello,

    I’ve recently met the $2,000.00 threshold this month, to be eligible for the 55,000 RR points. My statement closes on 04/18/2016. How soon will my rapid reward account be credited with the bonus points? I know the standard language is 4-8 weeks. Has anyone had their RR account credited sooner? If so, what was the turn-around time?

    Reply
    1. MileCards.com

      @beth – Unfortunately no you can’t do that without paying a fee. It’s $500 to transfer 50k points.

      An alternative is to simply have him book tickets in your, or anyone else’s name with his points. That’t totally okay and he doesn’t need to be flying.

      If you’re trying to earn Companion Pass the strategy you mentioned won’t work even if you pay a transfer fee as that kind of transferred points won’t count toward companion pass.

    Hi Everyone,

    I recently applied for the Southwest Premier and Premier Business cards. I got approved for the premier and hopefully will spend the minimum by Jan to get 50k points. However I did not get approved for the business card, I tried calling them to reconsider but they would not. I see there is a 40k bonus available for the plus, and after meeting the minimum spend on both, and transferring hotel points, etc.. Ill be short a little over 8000 points! whats the best way to gain those points? Trying to take advantage of as many months as possible with companion pass!

    Thanks in advance.

    Reply
    1. MileCards.com

      @Hassib – Maybe wait and see if the Plus comes back with 50k in the next month. Otherwise, consider a Marriott card to earn more points you can xfer over. Or consider buying points. You an buy 30k Marriott points for $375 – which would get you 10k Southwest points:

      https://buy.points.com/PointsPartnerFrames/partners/Marriott/container.html?language=EN&product=BUY

      Given the Southwest points are worth about $300 when you factor Companion Pass (about 1.5 cents X 2) your net outlay is pretty reasonable.

      1. Hassib

        Ahhh, wish I waited for your response! I got a referral for 50k and went ahead with that, but doing it your way would have saved me an extra ~$700. (2,000 minimum spend vs 1,000)

        Now I know for next time around! ;)

    In November, I got the Plus card with the 40,000 bonus points offer, and at the same time I got the Premium card for 50,000 bonus points. My goal is the companion pass, however, since I didn’t get the 50,000 bonus on the plus card, I am at a loss to what to do to get to 110,000 points. I may be able to make it by the end of the year, but I want to go on a vacation in August 2016, so if I can earn the points this year, that would be better.
    What should I do? My credit score is okay, and I do have rental property that I could claim for about 25,000 annual income. Has anyone tried applying for the business card? And do I need to close my premium account after the miles are earned and then apply for the business premium card?
    If anyone has any other point earning ideas, I’d be happy to hear them.
    I’m also assuming that I will get 9,000 points from these two cards next November? If all else fails, this may push me over the edge for getting it by the end of the year.
    90,000 +9,000 + 4,000 (amount I get from minimal spending) =103,000 so I would need to have spent 7,000 more this year, which is pretty doable.
    So, to risk it with the business card idea? Or just go with the latter and hope to earn points by next December?

    Reply
    1. MileCards.com

      @Angela – The Business Card sounds like a good option given your rental property and its real income – the card is useful for keeping those expenses separate. No need to close the other account you have – they’re fine with you having two of them.

      Did you already complete the spending on the Plus and Premier personal cards (hopefully not)? You actually don’t want to hit the 110,000 the end of this year. Your best bet is to wait to finish the spending on those until January so the bonus hits in 2016. That way the bonus you get from each will count toward your 2016 total, and you’ll have Companion Pass for most of 2016 and all of 2017.

      And if that’s the case your spending option sounds just fine too, but will take you longer to earn in 2016.

        Thanks for the advice. Wow I actually accidentally hit the spending limit for one of the cards, I thought it was 3,000 but it was actually only 1,000. I guess I’m gonna no companion pass for me, but maybe there’s still hope for my husband to earn one. Sad for me though because i wanted to go on vacation with other people.

          @Angela – Sorry to hear that. Which card was it? You can still hold off on the other card spending, and apply for the Business to add to your total in 2016.

    I applied last year for the Premier Business SW card (at least I think it was last year). It has not been 24 months since I last applied for it. Has anyone recieved the 50,000 bonus points when they applied for a new credit card less than 24 months from their last application? Or maybe the opposite, how would you know for sure if you will not get the bonus, even if you are approved for the card? Any help would be wonderful! Thank you.

    I’m new to this. I just want to clarify. So I could get both the Premier and the Rapids Rewards cards, and get 50,000 points from each that would be able to combine so that I could automatically have 100,000 points? But I have to charge $2k for each card in the first 3 months? Then I just need to charge enough extra to get it to 110,000 points in order to get 2 companion passes at that point? Do all of the offers have the same annual fee for the card? Thank you.

    Reply
    1. Lisa W

      There are now only 3 cards. Personal Premier $99 annual fee. Personal Plus $69 annual fee. Business Premier $99 annual fee. You cannot have both the personal cards in your name at the same time. You would need to open one, spend $2,000 in the first 3 months, then close it, before opening the other personal card. You can have one personal, and one business card at the same time.
      Here is what I found out the hard way… because the offers come and go, the best time to apply is the end of the year (like right now) then don’t spend the entire $2,000 until your Dec statement close date has past. You must earn all 110,000 points in the same calendar year for the companion pass. Hope this helps!

        I forgot to mention, you will need to make sure all the points for both credit cards are going to the same rapid rewards account number (you can set up a free rapid rewards account before applying for credit cards, then include that number in your cc apps).

          You actually can have both personal cards in your name at the same time. I applied for both the same day and was instantly approved.

    Hey guys, I just noticed that I have 76,000 companion miles this year. I signed up for the premier SW card in 2014 – so I am not eligible for the 50k points for signing up for that card this year. However, I found an offer for 40k points for the “plus” card. I signed up today, and asked that they rush deliver it.

    I have a bill for $1,000 that I am waiting to pay with the card, so I will have met the requirement immediately. My question is – do you think that the points will post in time?

      It’s all about the statement close date. They say if the purchase is made and not pending by the statement close date of that month. (although once i made a purchase so close to the statement close date, i don’t think it was pending, but the points didn’t hit in time with their automated system, and I didn’t earn the compannion pass I was going for… bummer for me. Try to give it more than a day or two before the statement close date. My statement close date is the 21st of each month.)

    Example Scenario:
    Got SW card in October and spent $1900 by December. Spent $100 in January so that the bonus applies for new year. Which year does the 1900 points apply to?

    Reply
    1. MileCards.com

      @Robert – Points for basic spending on your December statement would post to the current year. Note that some of your December month spending could be part of your January statement. For example if your statement ends December 17, spending after that is part of your January statement.

    Dear Miles,
    I earned the 50K bonus on Sep 6, 2013 and soon canceled that card. Should I wait until Sep 7, 2015 to apply again for the same card? Or could I apply this July but wait to meet the $2000 minimum until after Sep 6, 2015? (the 24 month mark)

    Hi – my first statement date closes on 3/11 and I will have spent the $2,000 needed for my 50,000 points. I am going to Cancun 4/15-19, and I bought my tickets to Cancun (friend ordered using her points) but I want to wait to get my 50,000 to buy our return flights as they are $500 each. My question is, will I have the points in time and am I waiting too long to do this? Anyone with any experience in how long it takes once the statement closes and also if I am waiting to long and may have issues getting a return flight….I’d really appreciate your input!

    Reply
    1. MileCards.com

      @Denise – Great question. It can vary, but if you get your spending done about 1-2 weeks before your statement closing date, then people report the points posting a few days after the statement closes.

      http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/southwest-airlines-rapid-rewards/1549130-chase-cards-when-do-points-post.html

      So try to get that minimum spend done as soon as you can before March 11, maybe before the end of this month. Then if the points don’t post by about March 15th, give them a call.

    I’m not sure I understand the statement “You may earn one Personal and one Business offer per card”. As someone without any of these cards, I’m thinking of getting one personal and one business, so that I can qualify for the companion pass.
    I was thinking of getting the “Plus” version of each to save on annual fee. Are you saying that I would only get one 50,000 mile bonus if I had 2 “Plus” cards?

      @Rich B – Yes you can get both the Personal and Business version of the Plus card and get a bonus for each. What you can’t do is get 2 personal Plus cards or 2 business Plus cards and get the bonus for each.

    I currently have a Premier card that I’ve had for about 3 years. Do you know if I can cancel that card and apply for a new Plus and Premier card and receive the 50,000 point bonus on each since I have not received a bonus in the last 24 months. With regards to getting a rapids reward # to enter into the application, I thought it was not for current members so didn’t think I would want a rapid rewards #. Sorry for all the questions just want to make sure I have this all right. Thanks!

      @Jeremy – If you already have a Rapid Rewards number, just enter that in the application. As for the Premier you already have…in theory once you cancel you could be eligible again since it has been 3 years since first opened. But as you might imagine there is no guarantee, so do it if you’re comfortable with the credit inquiry.

          So just to clarify: since I have the plus, acquiring the premiere card would count towards getting points for the companion pass? Or, I could gamble and wait for another 50k offer on the business card before years end. What makes ore sense?

    Hello
    1) Early this year I signed up for the premier, hit the bonus 50k, canceled my card months later. Now if I sign up for a “Plus”, “Plus Business”, or “Premier Business” Card, will the new 50k point bonuses still take effect?
    2) Is there a Plus 50k point bonus link available? Plus Business? Plus Premier?

    Reply
    1. MileCards.com

      @Kyle – Each of the 4 cards is a distinct product, so you are eligible for the bonus in place when you apply for the remaining cards you haven’t held before.

      At the moment the 50k isn’t available for the Plus or Premier Business cards online. There has been a refer a friend program where some people have been emailed the 50k offer, with a code they can extend to friends to receive it as well. But that’s just for the Premier personal card you already have.

      So hold tight, as in the past the deal has returned a few times a year.

    FYI I was instantly approved for both the Plus and Premier personal cards for 50,000 points each on the same day! So I’ll be able to earn Companion Pass status with the 100,000 points I earned plus some extra spending.

    Planning to hold off on hitting the $2k spending threshold for each until January so the Companion Pass will be valid for most of 2014 and all of 2015.

    If you’re considering this make sure you don’t let your bonus hit before January otherwise you’ll only get Companion Pass for 2014.

          @Jeremy – Just enter the same Rapid Rewards account number in each application form. Note though if you’re trying to qualify it’s probably best to let one hold off on hitting the bonus threshold until the January statement so you get the 2015 plus 2016 Companion Pass qualification.

    Please be aware that if you expect the $200 credit on your first bill, they will not give you the 50,000 points. I signed up in Sept of 2015 and just called to find out where my 50,000 points are. Chase told me that when I called in to get my $200 credit after my first bill, which was part of the promo, I was unknowingly then put into the promo of 10,000 points. It is the old “bait and switch” tactic. I even spoke with a supervisor, and they still would not honor the original promo of 50,000 points. It says nothing about only getting 10,000 points when you get the $200 credit in the “Offer Details”.

    I’m in the same boat! I accepted and applied for the 50,000 points and the $200 credit, I had expected to see that reflected on my statement. When I got the statement, to my surprise, it only showed 10,000 plus the $200 credit! I emailed them and was informed they can give me the additional 40,000 points but will need to charge me the $200!!! That wasn’t the offer I had accepted.

    Is it better to take the 40,000 points or the keep the 10,000 along with the $200 credit????
