Earning Up to 60,000 Bonus Points with the Southwest Credit Cards

Earning Up to 60,000 Bonus Points with the Southwest Credit Cards

Sign up bonuses can really grab consumer’s attention when they are shopping for a new credit card, and right now Southwest’s three co-branded personal credit cards are offering new cardholders up to 60,000 Rapid Rewards bonus points. What do they have to do to get the 60,000 bonus points?

That is great question. This is a tiered bonus so they get 40,000 bonus points when they spend $1,000 with their card during the first 90 days they have their card. Then they get an extra 20,000 points when they use their card to buy $12,000 worth of merchandise or services during their first year of being a cardholder. When you do the math that adds up to 60,000 bonus points.

This offer is available for all three of the Southwest Airlines personal credit cards:

  • Southwest Rapid Rewards Premier Credit Card
  • Southwest Rapid Rewards Plus Credit Card
  • Southwest Rapid Rewards Priority Credit Card

But what about the business card they are offering? With that card people get 80,000 bonus reward points once they spend $5,000 with their card during the first 90 days they have their card.

Going deep on the cards

With all three Southwest credit cards, people earn double points when booking travel with Southwest, as well as when booking with their hotel and rental card partners. All other spends earn them one point per dollar they spend.

That said they all come along with some very real differences as well. With the Southwest Rapid Rewards Plus Credit Card people get 3,000 Rapid Rewards points when their anniversary rolls around and the annual fee for this card is $69.

On the other hand with the Southwest Rapid Rewards Premier Credit Card people get 6,000 Rapid Rewards points at anniversary time, and the annual fee is $99.

The Southwest Rapid Rewards Priority Credit Card has an annual fee of $149 but cardholders get 7,500 Rapid Rewards points as an anniversary present. They also get a $75 annual Southwest travel credit, and upgraded boarding four times a year when it is available. When flying they also get 20% back on when buying drinks and paying for Wi-Fi while in the air.
