Southwest Credit Card offer of 50,000 points is back!!!!

Updated: This offer is gone and the current offer is 25,000. 

This is hands down what I think is the best travel credit card offer to get started on free travel.  The points had dropped down to 25,000 for a while but 50,000 will get you places!!!!!

You need to spend $2,000 on the card over 90 days to get the 50,000 miles.  In the past there was no spending quota but $2,000 seems to be pretty standard with Chase now.

There are a total of four Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards credit cards – currently ALL of them have the same 50,000 points offer with the $2,000 spend within 3 months:

  • Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards® Premier Card – $99/year fee, but you receive 6,000 points after year card member year – which will give you $100 towards a future Southwest “Wanna Getaway” fare.
  • Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards® Premier Business Card – $99/year fee, but you receive 6,000 points after year card member year – which will give you $100 towards a future Southwest “Wanna Getaway” fare.
  • Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards® Plus Card – $69/year fee, but you only receive 3,000 points after each annual year.
  • Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards® Plus Business Card – $69/year fee, but you only receive 3,000 points after each annual year.

What does 50,000 points get you?  One way from Midway to Orlando is 7,684 points.  Round trip is 15,368.  Midway to Minn/St Paul for a Mall of American Weekend is 3,777 each way.  Orlando to Las Vegas is 12,242 each way.

Often I like to use my Southwest points for one way tickets and pay for the return leg.  Stretches my points further and reduces the cost of the trip to Orlando in half.
