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.
