FM vs DoC: Southwest Companion Pass with 1 Card. A great deal or quite weak?

Chase and Southwest stunned the points & miles world yesterday with new offers for their consumer credit cards.  Through February 11, all three Southwest consumer cards are offering new cardholders 30,000 points plus a Companion Pass after $4K spend in 3 months.  The Companion Pass is valid only through 12/31/19. Regarding these offers, our own Nick Reyes said: “Wow!” and “this is a great deal if you’re interested in the Companion Pass”. On the other…

And since these are important tidbits that points and miles collectors should know about, we’re going to switch it up a bit this week. Call it a “Breaking News”…
