Update: bonus is now 25,000 points.

Just a friendly reminder that tomorrow (Sunday August 7, 2011) is the last day to apply for the Chase Southwest Premier Visa.

I did an analysis on the offer here and overall, if you fly Southwest on Wanna Get Away fares, this card could bonus translates into $833 towards flights, which isn't bas since it only has a $99 annual fee (but awards 6,000 points a year year renewal bonus). The normal bonus is only 20,000, this is probably as good as we will get for a while.

I used to fly Southwest a lot in college between Philadelphia and Pittsburgh and I always had a good experience. They brought down the fares significantly on that route and the crews were always friendly. I didn't mind their no-advanced seating policy on such a short flight and overall I liked their customer friendly policies, like a free checked bag and no penalty for changing a flight. While I personally don't fly them much these days, I still think this is a great deal. Just note, that you should only apply for a Chase card once every 30 days (and even though you'll probably have to call to get the card approved). Check out my analysis of the current Chase card offering.
