If you don’t already have a Southwest Rapid Rewards Card, I highly recommend this card. If you sign up right now, you can earn 75,000 Bonus Points!
You’ll earn 75,000 points after you spend $3,000 on purchases in the first 3 months of account opening.
**Pro tip: If you already have a Southwest Card, but you’ve had it for over 24 months, you can call and cancel your card. Save the link to this post and after about a week, you can apply for a new card and get this bonus again! I’ve done this for years and years and it has never hurt my credit score.**
There are also lots of extra points you can earn on purchases, too, including 2 points per $1 spent on your internet and phone services! Plus you’ll get 2 EarlyBird Check-Ins per year, and if you fly Southwest you know that’s a huge perk!
Plus! When you book Southwest flights with your points you can cancel your flights or change them at ANY time with no penalties. This has come in handy so many times for me. I’ve booked flights and then the points (price) has dropped on the flights and I’ve gone back, canceled my flights, and rebooked for the lower points!
- Just a note, this card does have a yearly fee, but the bonus points are totally worth it for me! Make sure you use your credit card responsibly and pay it off each month.
I personally like the Premier Card because it is only $30 more than the Plus Card but you get twice as many anniversary points. If you don’t plan to keep the card past a year, go with the Plus Card for a lower yearly fee.
Here’s a quick example of what your points might be able to get you. I just quickly pulled up their Low Fare Calendar for Salt Lake City to Orlando for January 2023. These are points for flights on those days. Roughly, you can see that you can get flights for as low as 7,674 points each way. That means you can get up to 10 flights for FREE (because you will have 78,000 points after you spend $3,000)!
If you prefer to go to California, you can get flights for as low as 4,199 each way to my favorite airport near Disneyland, Long Beach. That’s as many as 18 free flights!
You can even fly to Hawaii for Free with this deal! You can get flights for as low as 14,135 each way in September. That 5 free tickets!
Note: This is just an example. Flight prices change all the time.
Remember, you will need to sign up through my special link to get these bonus points.
