I have called [Southwest Airlines] SWA 5 times to ask if the 50,000 [points] apply toward the companion pass. 2 agents said yes, 3 others, however, said they are bonus points and DO NOT count. Any insight?

Update: The 60,000 point offer has expired.
Reader Blake A commented that Navy Federal Credit Union has a 60,000 point offer on their Visa Signature Flagship Rewards card.
$600 in air travel from just 1 card – which is not issued the big banks like Chase or American Express – is quite a good deal!
Note that you have to affiliated to the military (contractor, national guard etc.) or have family in the military to qualify.

[Disclosure: Emily and I do NOT get a commission for the Virgin Atlantic card.]
Bank of America reintroduced the Virgin Atlantic credit card as a Mastercard in August, but only had a sign-up bonus of 25,000 miles.
I suggested waiting until the 50,000 mile offer came back. And the 50,000 mile offer is back!
This is marketed as a 65,000 mile offer, but it really is only for 50,000 miles.
