Southwest Deals Abound

If you are not a Southwest Rapid Rewards Member you should sign up now and get 750 points just for signing up!  This bonus alone will eventually be enough for nearly $15 worth of travel.  Southwest is currently offering their credit cards with 50,000 point bonuses again, which will get you at least 2 round trip tickets.  This is a very good deal, but can actually be made better with a little bit of work.

Companion Pass

I got in on the offer last time and signed up for both the Personal Premier and Business Premier credit cards.  These both offer 50,000 points after you spend $2,000 in 3 months.  Spending $2,000 in 3 months is very easy to do if you shift all spending to your card.  The annual fee for these cards are $99 each, but after the bonus and spending you will have 104,000 points.  These points count toward a companion pass!  Southwest offers anyone that gets 110,000 points in one calendar year a companion pass which is good for unlimited flying of a companion.  So if I book a flight with either points or cash my wife’s (or whoever you identify as your companion) flight is free!  So, the $198 in annual fees leaves me with 104,000 points that I can use toward travel and my wife will fly with me.  Currently there is a great sale where a trip from Louisville, KY to Denver, Colorado would only cost 10,560 Southwest points per roundtrip ticket, but with the companion pass my wife and I could both fly for 10,560 total.  This is a very lucrative bonus especially for infrequent fliers such as us.
