[Disclosure: Emily and I get a commission for the Southwest cards in this post, but not for the Delta targeted offer (which is better than my link for only 30,000 miles). As always, the link is to the best offers for the card regardless of whether it pays a commission or not. You don't have to use our links, but we are grateful when you do!]
Update: The 50,000 point Southwest offer expired on October 30, 2013.

Thanks to all the readers for sending me a link to the 50,000 point Southwest card!
All 4 versions of the Southwest credit cards currently offer 50,000 Southwest points after spending $2,000 within 3 months. You can redeem 50,000 Southwest points for ~$850 in Southwest flights or for ~$500 in gift cards.
2 Southwest credit cards and 10,000 extra points can get you $3,666 in Southwest travel and a Southwest Companion pass so that your companion can fly free (pay just the $2.50 security fee) for up to two years!
The offer is likely to be around until October 30, 2013. That said, you’re better off waiting to apply for the card until the 2nd or 3rd week of October. Continue reading
