Southwest Rapid Rewards® Plus Credit Card – 2 FREE FLIGHTS Limited Time Offer
I just saw on The Points Guy’s site that the awesome Southwest Rapid Rewards Plus Credit Card 50,000 Rapid Reward point sign-up bonus is ending tomorrow. I am working on getting confirmation myself, but I very much trust his info, so my feeling is that it is true. So, if you are on the fence about applying for this card, time is up!
My hunch is this 50,000 point offer ($833 in Wanna Get Away credit) will probably be back at some point (though you never know), but if you want in on it now, I would do it by sometime early tomorrow – November 11th. You can read more about what the Southwest card can do for you here and the possibility of obtaining a companion pass by getting two 50,000 point cards here. Presumably, if you waited until January 2012 to activate the card and make the first purchase, your 50,000 points can count towards pursuing the Companion Pass in 2012. That would actually be a pretty good strategy if it works. A word of warning about this though, at least one reader (see the comments section) has been told by Rapid Rewards that this strategy would not work and that the points wouldn’t count towards 2012 CP qualification. I’m not 100% why since the points wouldn’t post to your account until 2012, but they obviously know more about the inner workings of Rapid Rewards than I do. So, if you are applying with this strategy in mind I would get some verification from Rapid Rewards it will work before proceeding.
Good luck if you plan on applying for this very family friendly sign-up bonus! Let me know if you have any questions, or if you get in on this deal!
