HOW TO TACKLE CREDIT CARD DEBT

Don’t Yet Apply For The Southwest 100k New Offers- Here’s Why.

- Oct 19, 2021 Credit Card Offers0 comments

Chase has released new all-time high welcome offers on the three personal Southwest cards. But don’t apply yet. Rather wait a bit so you can get the companion pass for 2022 and 2023. Here is why and how.

New welcome offer

First, let’s start with the welcome offer.

You can earn up to 100,000 points. The breakdown is as follows: Earn 50,000 after spending $2,000 within the first 3 months. Plus earn an additional 50,000 points after spending a total of $12,000 within the first 12 months.

Please note; you can only get approved for one Southwest personal card in 24 months. So you cannot apply for all three cards at the same time. Here are the exact welcome offer terms: “The product is not available to either (i) current Cardmembers of any Southwest Rapid Rewards Credit Card, or (ii) previous Cardmembers of any Southwest Rapid Rewards Credit Card who received a new Cardmember bonus within the last 24 months. This does not apply to Cardmembers of the Southwest Rapid Rewards Business Card and Employee Credit Card products”.

Southwest business cards are counted separately so you can get one Southwest personal plus a Southwest Business card or even get one Southwest personal plus both Southwest business cards.

Southwest companion pass

You can get a Southwest companion pass after earning 125,000 Southwest points in a calendar year (welcome bonus points are included). Once you earn the pass then the pass will be valid for the remainder of the calendar year plus for the full upcoming year. So let’s say you earn the pass today then the pass will be valid for the rest of 2021 plus the full year of 2022.

The companion pass is valid for an unlimited amount of flights and even for reward flights. If you fly 10 times then you can take along your companion 10 times (all 10 times need to be the same companion). All you need to pay is the taxes and fees (can be as low as $5.60)

With the new Southwest credit card bonus, you will earn a total of 112k points.  So that takes you very close to earning a free companion pass. For the remaining 13K points, you can either earn it through flights, spend, or sign up for one of the Southwest business cards and get a bonus on one of the business cards as well.

But that’s why I told you to hold off a bit from applying yet. Because you would rather earn the companion pass at the beginning of next year and have the pass for 2022 and 2023. So rather sign up in about a month or so and make sure to earn the bonus points somewhere at the beginning of 2022 (technically even if you sign up today you can still make sure not to complete the spend till 2022 so you don’t earn the bonus until the beginning of 2022). The offer is set to expire on 12/07/21.
