I just found out that there is only one more week to get in on the 50,000 point Southwest Premier Visa card offer. I originally heard they may extend the offer, but it’s not looking that way. I just received an email that I have to stop promoting the offer starting the morning of August 8, 2011.

So basically, if you want $833 in Southwest flights, you should apply now just to be safe. While the offer is advertised as, “2 free flights,” you really just get enough points to buy $833 in Wanna Get Away fares and even though there is a $99 annual fee, you get 6,000 points every year when you renew, which is $100 towards Wanna Get Away fares. Overall, this card is a no-brainer for those who have any upcoming plans to fly Southwest. Even if you don’t have any upcoming Southwest flights, points don’t expire as long as your have any activity on your account (like a single credit card transaction) within the past 24 months. And if you have no intentions of flying Southwest, you can still convert 50,000 points into $500 in gift cards.

For more information, see my original post on the deal.

    I did this card before when I got the $500 in gift cards after spend and a free flight — its a decent card, I don’t use it much and it is Chase so that can impact your strategy but still not a bad deal — this looks pretty solid too, you can always cancel it!

    The advertising says “Now you can redeem for International Travel”, but does that mean anything beyond using a gift card to purchase air travel on other carriers?

    Good to advertise the potential value Brian but it’s Southwest we are talking about here, not much use/value!

  • Heerow

    I think you can use the points on their partner carrier Volaris, which flies to Mexico.

    last time i got a CHase card was in Early May; and i am now on ” IN PROGRESS” with Amex Platinum App. Would one application at Chase impact the application with Amex ? I am EXcellent Credit per CredtSesame.

    OOPS I used my bridge nick here
    I just got approved for American Express Platinum to get 100K sign on bonus with $1000 spend/3 month. This sounds crazy: How does AMEX keep on targeting 3 prospects with SAME last name while they NEVER lived at the target address? Equalling amusing was: I stepped twice into there RSVP and got Blue and Platinum? How many people out there with excellent credit just keep on collecting goodies without going too much beyond Spend?( I have to admit i have been a loyal holder for Chase Freedom Visa and Mastercard; however rewards on new signon bonus are simply so tempting…)
    Now i am off to Southwest and also getting my ‘busy’ Calfornia daughter to hop on this SOuthwest deal.
    anybody knows for sure how their business model is? who is paying? banks with cheap points from sponoring airlines( hotels) or Hotels Airlines striving to get loyal customers ?

    Can anyone tell me what type of gift cards you can exchange points for – I can’t find a list of options anywhere? Also, they mention points are available for international travel – does this mean you can get gift cards for other airlines or actually exchange points with other airlines to book international travel? if so, any ideas on “exchange rates” on the points?
