Southwest Rapid Rewards Credit Cards - Compare them all

CardFinder

What’s the best Southwest credit card for you? The answer might surprise you as you have an option that doesn’t say Southwest on the front. It could be the Chase Sapphire Preferred, which earns points you can transfer directly into your Rapid Rewards account or any of 4 other airlines including United. 

The answer depends on how much you spend each year and where you spend it (dining, travel). Southwest’s own credit cards earn good bonuses each year, but if you’re a big dining or travel spender you could find more value elsewhere.

Also pay attention to one of the best deals in Southwest travel – the Companion Pass – and the only credit card points that count for it are those from Southwest branded cards.
