Chase Launches Increased Offers on Three Southwest Cards

Chase has increased the welcome offers on its personal Southwest Rapid Rewards cards, improving the signup bonus on all three cards to 60,000 points after meeting a tiered minimum spend. These new offers could be ideal timing for folks aiming to secure a Southwest Companion Pass for 2020/21.

Southwest Rapid Rewards® Performance Business Credit Card Review

The new Southwest Performance Business Card launches with a massive signup offer of 80,000 Rapid Rewards points after you meet the minimum spend requirement. In addition to getting you a big step closer to earning the coveted Southwest Companion Pass, we think this card is a long-term keeper for many business owners, thanks to some great ongoing benefits.

Southwest Status Match Challenge

Southwest has announced a status match challenge, where you will receive A-List status for 90 days, in which time you need to complete 3 roundtrips or 6 one-way trips with Southwest to extend your status for 12 months.

Chase Adds Restrictions to Southwest Consumer Cards

Chase has added eligibility restrictions to the consumer versions of its Southwest Credit Cards. The new eligibility criteria affect the Southwest Rapid Rewards® Plus Credit Card, and the Southwest Rapid Rewards® Premier Credit Card. The change may make getting the Southwest Companion Pass a little more difficult going forward.

Southwest Tweaks the Value of Rapid Reward Points

Southwest has announced an adjustment to the value of Rapid Rewards when redeeming for airfare. Unlike most adjustments in the industry, this one is both good and bad depending on the type of tickets you normally redeem your Rapid Rewards — but the least expensive tickets are going up in price.
