I Was Wrong & Right…

Million Mile SecretsI Was Wrong & Right…Million Mile Secrets Team

Signing-up for credit cards through partner links earns us a commission. Here’s our full Advertising Policy.

A few days ago, I suggested that links to the 50,000 point Southwest credit card would change because the Southwest website said “Final Days” next to the image of the 50,000 point credit card.

Well, the Chase website and the Southwest website both show links to only the 25,000 point offers now.

I also wrote “I don’t know if the non-affiliate offer will disappear as well (I’d guess not, but I don’t have any inside information).”

But I found links to the Southwest Plus personal and Southwest Plus business cards still have a 50,000 point bonus!  And this FlyerTalk thread has a link to the Southwest Premier personal card with a 50,000 point bonus.  I couldn’t find a link to the Southwest Premier business card with the 50,000 point bonus, but please comment or email if you have one!

These aren’t my links, so take a screenshot if you decide to apply.  I also don’t know how long they will last.  You can still fly for free for two years on Southwest with these cards!

Just an update as I applied a little over 2 weeks ago using the Business Plus link above. Today the card arrived and I confirmed the 50k bonus with the csr while activating the card on the phone. I then went ahead and used the link above and applied for the Personal Plus card online today and got a “pending review”. I will wait a couple days and see if I get approved and if not will call the reconsideration line. As a point of reference this was my 4th cc application within 30 days (1 Barclay, 1 Amex, and 2 Chase (1 Business 1 Personal)) I am guessing the reason I was not instantly approved is because of the 4 recent inquiries as I have only one other personal Chase card.

If I have the personal RR Plus card and want to get the personal RR Premier card, what is the best process?

1. cancel the Plus card and then apply for the Premier card?

2. keep the Plus card and apply for the Premier, and if I get turned down call the reconsideration line?

3. some other better plan?

Any insight from anyone would be appreciated. Thanks.

@Bill – The application page loads for the Plus version so you should get the 50K points if you applied through the 50K link.

@Scott – I’d go with #1 if you want another personal card. If you want a business version, you can keep the personal card open.

Has anyone confirmed the links above that are still live for the plus versions of the personal and business card are eligible for the 50k bonuses? I applied a few days ago and was accepted but now I am holding my breath that the bonus will in fact be 50k and not 25k.

Also, just wanted to say a quick thanks for a great site Daraius.

i was wondering if there was any downside for applying for the personal cc and then the business cc a month later, instead of applying at the same time.

@Jason – That should work too!
