50K Bonus on Southwest Rapid Rewards Premier and Premier Business

The 50,000 point bonus is back for the Southwest Premier personal and business credit cards and this is a good time to apply if you want to earn the Companion Pass for 2016 and 2017.

This bonuses comes around few times a year, but the Premier Business card also had a 60K earlier in the year, which is the best ever.

The cards come with a $99 annual fee. None of them is waived for the first year and will be charged to the card at the end of the first billing cycle. If you have referral links for these offers, you’re welcome to post them in the comments below.

Bonus offers are not available to current cardmembers of the specific credit card, or previous cardmembers of the specific credit card who received a new cardmember bonus for the credit card within the last 24 months.

Great Timing To Earn the Southwest Companion Pass

This is great timing for these cards as you can easily earn the coveted Companion Pass for almost two years. To earn the Companion pass you need to earn 110,000 points in a calendar year and you’ll have that pass for until the end of the following calendar year.

If you can get both cards then you will earn 104,000 points including the bonus and the $4,000 in spending to earn the bonus. I’m sure you can also figure out a way to quickly earn another 6,000 points (hint: transfer hotel points).

All these points will post in 2016 so you have nothing to worry about. Just try to do all the spending as quick as possible so you can earn the points as quick as possible. Points will usually post few days after your statement closes, assuming you have reached the spending requirement.

Why is the Companion Pass so valuable? Because your Companion, which can be whoever you choose, can fly with you for free on Southwest when you have Companion Pass status. And to make things even better, you Companion Pass works on paid and award flights.
