Update: Some offers mentioned below are no longer available. View the current offers here – Southwest Rapid Rewards Plus Credit Card

I've written about the Chase Southwest card and I think its a pretty good card for those who fly Southwest. Since my last post, an even better offer has been unveiled that includes a waived annual fee ($59 thereafter). This is a generous offer, but beware - the new, more complex Southwest RapidRewards 2.0 starts March 1. These credits will still be honored, but make sure you are aware of the new program rules that highly favor Business Select purchases.

How we chose these cards

Our points-obsessed staff uses a plethora of credit cards on a daily basis. If anyone on our team wouldn’t recommend it to a friend or a family member, we wouldn’t recommend it on The Points Guy either. Our opinions are our own, and have not been reviewed, approved, or endorsed by our advertising partners.
