Southwest Credit Card
Just signed up to this forum. I have been reading for about 1 year now and have found many hints and tips. I have been promoting points cards to my wife to the point she is asking me if this card or that card is a “good” one. Anyway she asked me today about the Soutwest card. I did not answer her yet as I remember it was part of Lucky’s list. So I was doing some research because I remember Southwest has the companion perk. However has anyone noticed this in the rules regarding the companion pass?
Points purchased for personal use or as a gift, transferred points, points earned from[I] program enrollment[/I], Tier bonus points, flight bonus points, and Partner bonus points (with the exception of the Rapid Rewards Credit Cards from Chase) do not qualify as Companion Pass Qualifying Points.
Specifically the enrollment points. So does that mean we cannot get two crads and get 100,000 points towards the companion pass. At one time I thought we could.
Hi [USER=2378]@Aroski[/USER], and welcome!
The “program enrollment” points they’re referring to are for things like “get 500 Rapid Rewards points when you join!”, not the credit card points. Points from the signup bonus should count.
And if you apply for the cards make sure your bonuses don’t hit until next year. If you trigger them this year you’ll waste a year of CP.
