Can You Apply for Different Versions of the Chase Southwest Card and Still Get the Bonuses?

Million Mile Secrets reader, AC, commented:

I was approved for both the personal and small business versions of the Chase Southwest Rapid Rewards Premier card this past December.  The problem is, one 50,000 point sign-up bonus posted in late December 2015.  And the other card’s bonus posted in January 2016.  So, I can only use the bonus that posted in January 2016 towards the Companion Pass (because you must earn 110,000 Southwest points in one calendar year).

I still want to try and earn the extra points I need for the Companion Pass.  Can I apply for the Chase Southwest Plus Personal Card and get approved if I still have the Southwest Premier (personal version) open?  Or should I cancel the Southwest Premier (personal) first, even though it has only been open since December?  Any advice would be helpful.

Great question AC!

I understand why AC is interested in the Southwest Companion Pass.  Because I think it’s the best travel deal!

Can You Apply For Different Versions Of The Chase Southwest Card And Still Get The Bonuses

When You Have the Southwest Companion Pass, Your Best Friend Can Fly With You for (Almost) Free for up to 2 Years!

I’ll explain if AC should apply for the Chase Southwest Plus Personal Card, because he already has 2 other Chase Southwest cards.  And other ways AC might be able to qualify for the Companion Pass.

Review of the New Marvel MasterCard (3% Back on Dining & Entertainment)

Here’s my review of the new Marvel MasterCard!  It’s a no-annual-fee cash back card from Synchrony Bank with cool superhero card art.

This card does NOT have a great sign-up bonus.  But it does earn 3% at restaurants and select entertainment like movie theaters, games, Marvel.com, and more.

And while we don’t earn a commission from this card, we’ll always tell you about interesting deals.

News You Can Use – Hilton Status Match Extended, 5,000 JetBlue Points, 20% Off Silvercar, & More

1.   Hilton Status Match Extended to March 2018

Via The Points Guy, Hilton has extended its status match program.

So, if you have elite status with a competing hotel chain, like Choice, Hyatt, IHG, Marriott, or Starwood, Hilton will upgrade your HHonors Elite status to match.

You can submit your status match application online by June 30, 2016.  Along with something that shows your elite status with another program (like a screenshot).  And proof of a stay with that program in the past 12 months.

You’ll get Hilton HHonors elite status through March 31, 2018.  And they’ll match to Silver, Gold, or Diamond, depending on your status in another program.

Hilton HHonors Diamond Status Offers Late Check-Out. Who Would Want to Leave a View Like This at the Waldorf Astoria Rome Cavalieri?

And remember, certain credit cards give you automatic hotel elite status.  For instance, the Chase Hyatt card gives you Hyatt Platinum status.  And folks with the Chase IHG Rewards Club Select receive automatic IHG Platinum elite status.

During Hilton’s last status match promotion, many folks reported receiving Hilton Diamond status (executive lounge access, room upgrades, late check-out when available, and free breakfast at some hotels) when they matched to IHG Platinum elite status.

So this deal is a no-brainer for folks with the Chase IHG card, which comes with automatic Platinum Elite status!
