Heads up!  If you’ve been considering the increased 60,000 Southwest point offers for the Southwest Rapid Rewards® Premier Credit Card, Southwest Rapid Rewards® Plus Credit Card, or Southwest Rapid Rewards® Premier Business Credit Card, you only have a few days left to apply!

Via Doctor of Credit, Southwest shared on their Facebook page that these offers will end June 29, 2017 (this Thursday!).  And I’ve confirmed the end date with Chase representatives.

By earning the bonus from 1 personal and 1 small business card, you’ll have more than the 110,000 Southwest points required in a calendar year to earn the Southwest Companion Pass.  It’s still the best deal in travel!

Through June 29, 2017, you’ll earn an increased sign-up bonus from the 3 Chase Southwest cards after meeting minimum spending requirements.

With the limited-time improved offers for the Chase Southwest Premier Personal or Chase Southwest Plus cards, you’ll earn 60,000 Southwest points after spending $2,000 on purchases in the first 3 months of opening your account.

And with the Chase Southwest Premier Small Business Card, you’ll earn 60,000 Southwest points after spending $3,000 on purchases in the first 3 months of account opening.

The annual fee ($99 for the Premier cards, $69 for the Plus) is NOT waived the first year.

Here are the differences between the cards:

The Southwest Companion Pass is still the best deal in travel.

Bottom Line

The increased 60,000 Southwest point offers for the Southwest Rapid Rewards® Premier Credit Card, Southwest Rapid Rewards® Plus Credit Card, and Southwest Rapid Rewards® Premier Business Credit Card will end on June 29, 2017.

So you’ve only got a few days left to apply!

FYI… I applied on the 2nd of July and STILL received the 60,000 points.

Hello:

I last got three personal credit cards, including the Southwest Plus personal card, on April 12 (75 days ago). I wanted to get the 60K bonus offer on the Southwest Premier personal card before the offer expires on June 29th. But that would be 78 days (short of what I believe is the 90-day minimum waiting period). I was thinking that I read somewhere that personal cards are only a minimum of 60 days waiting and business cards are the 90 days. Any advice on when I should apply (now before June 29th or maybe just wait the full 90 days and then ask through the secure message to get bumped up from the offer I got when I apply to the 60K, which they often do when you ask). Thanks.
