Southwest 50x credit card promotion

Eligible Southwest Credit Cards

Southwest notes that “any Rapid Rewards® Credit Card” is eligible for this promotion. So, all 7 Southwest credit cards issued by Chase are eligible.

Our Take

After a recent devaluation, Southwest Rapid Rewards points are currently worth between 1.3 and 1.5 cents per point. That means you're getting between 65 and 75 cents in value per $1 you spend on Southwest purchases today. But, what keeps this from being an earth-shattering deal is the $100 spending limit.

Still, this offer is a great way to earn a nice chunk of Rapid Rewards points — up to 5,000 to be exact. And since these bonus points count towards the Companion Pass, it makes the deal even better for those pursuing it. If you're an eligible cardholder, don't forget to take advantage of this great deal today!

    Hope to see Southwest expand to Canada one day like JetBlue.

    I thought this was great until I read that it only applies to Southwest purchases. Since I always fly on points and don’t need to buy any, no love here. Also no love from the current “contest”. Three of us have entered every single day and won absolutely nothing.

    Just took advantage of this! Thank you so much for the FYI. It doesn’t say anywhere but I do hope that you don’t have to actually click on the link to book the flight. I assume just using the card today will suffice for the promotion.

    Is the $100 maximum per card or per Rapid Rewards account?

    I’ve always wondered what happens to the points for these kind of promotions if you cancel or refund your tickets….

    Does anyone know if you can use BOTH the personal and business card for double?
