Southwest 60K offers back: Companion Pass after $4K spend

The Chase Southwest Premier and Plus credit cards are back with 60,000-point signup bonuses on each, meaning it is once again possible to earn a Southwest Companion Pass with just 2 credit card signups. This time of year is probably the least desirable time to earn a Companion Pass in terms of the length of validity, but if you find yourself under 5/24 and you don’t intend to stay there long enough to wait, these offers…

WOW Air is running a promotion: $149 each way between New York and Tel Aviv, Israel. Round trip to Israel for less than $300 is amazing.

If they don’t have a flight available for your preferred date in one direction, keep…
