A longtime reader, Richard, just sent me a copy of a new survey that tested airlines for frequent flier award seat availability. Topping the list for the fifth year was Southwest at 100% availability.
You know what that means? It’s time to pick up some Southwest points for summer travel!
Southwest is currently offering 50,000 bonus points on their Rapid Rewards credit card from Chase.
It’s Free Money Friday!
*Find and compare all current credit card offers in our credit card directory. I had to click “Show More Results” twice to find it at the bottom of the list.
Earning Points. Earn 2 points per $1 spent on Southwest purchases & with Southwest partners. Earn 1 point per $1 spent everywhere else. Plus, get a 6,000 point anniversary bonus every year.
Points Expiration. Your points won’t expire as long as your card is open. If you close your card, you’ll need earning activity in your account every 24 months to keep points from expiring. I use AwardWallet to track expiration dates.
Companion Pass. If you earn 110,000 points you will qualify for a companion pass.
Southwest Perks. Southwest doesn’t charge fees for changing flights & you can check your first two bags for free!
