Final days for the 75,000-point Southwest credit card offers

If you’ve been sitting on the fence unable to decide whether or not to pull the trigger on the increased Southwest credit card bonuses you’ve only got a few days left to decide. Our 75,000-point Southwest card offers are ending on Feb. 10. If you’re in the market for a Southwest Companion Pass these bonuses are the best way to give yourself a head start because 75,000 points will get you 60% of the way to a Companion Pass!

Southwest points value generally stays around 1.5 cents each toward travel. This means 75,000 Southwest points are worth roughly $1,125 in Southwest flights. Southwest flies to lots of fun destinations, like Hawaii, Aruba, Jamaica, Belize, Costa Rica and the Bahamas.

Chase Southwest credit card 75,000 point offers

When you apply for the Southwest Rapid Rewards® Plus Credit Card, Southwest Rapid Rewards® Premier Credit Card, or Southwest Rapid Rewards® Priority Credit Card, you’ll earn:

  • 40,000 points after spending $1,000 on purchases within first three months of account opening
  • 35,000 more points after spending $5,000 on purchases within first six months of account opening

This is by far the fastest way to earn Southwest points, and even the $69 annual fee Southwest Rapid Rewards® Plus Credit Card is offering this bigger welcome bonus. These increased deals are extra enticing because they can help you to earn the holy grail of travel, the Southwest Companion Pass, more easily.

With the Southwest Companion Pass, you can bring a friend or family member with you for just the cost of taxes and fees. It doesn’t matter if your flight is booked with points or paid for with cash – your companion flies with you for just the cost of taxes. That means your points are worth effectively twice as much.

One way to earn the Southwest Companion Pass is to earn 125,000 Southwest points in a calendar year. The quickest and simplest method to do this is by opening one personal card along with one of the two Southwest business cards:

Just remember, you can only hold one Southwest personal credit card at a time. If you’ve opened a Southwest card in the past and the account is still open, you won’t be eligible to open another Southwest personal card and these cards are subject to the Chase 5/24 rule, so if you’ve opened five or more cards from any bank in the past 24 months (except for certain business cards) you won’t be eligible for the Southwest credit card offers.
