The Chase Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards Premier Business Card is now available with a 60,000 point after $3K spend signup offer!
Points earned from Southwest credit cards do count towards the Southwest Companion Pass. To get the Companion Pass, you must earn 110,000 points within a calendar year. Once you’ve earned those points, the pass is good for an unlimited number of free companion flights for the rest of that calendar year and all of the next.
If you pair this offer with either of the Chase Southwest personal cards (both the Premier and Plus cards are available for 50K points after $2K spend), it is possible to earn the Companion Pass very quickly. Once you’ve earned the signup bonuses, you’ll have the Companion Pass for the rest of 2017 and all of 2018.
All 3 signup bonus links are up to date on our Best Offers page. None are affiliate links. If you know a friend with any of these cards, though, you should ask them for a referral so that they can earn 10,000 bonus points. Recent reports indicate that referral bonus points also count towards the Companion Pass.
Unfortunately, the Southwest credit cards are subject to Chase’s 5/24 Rule. This means that if you opened 5 or more personal credit cards (or Capital One business cards) in the past 24 months, your application will most likely be denied.
