5 Reasons on Why You Need the Southwest Credit Card

1. After a $1,000 spent in 3 months, at 40,000 miles are deposited into your account.

2. 1 point per $1 spent on all other purchases

3. 2 points per $1 on Southwest purchases and Rapid Rewards hotel and partner purchases

In the last year or so, I have used my flights for Las Vegas, Orlando 2 times, Los Angeles in April, and Aruba. This is a card to make sure that it is in your wallet.

Some examples of flight costs:

CMH (Columbus, Ohio) to MCO (Orlando) in May (4,644 points) each way plus $5.60

CMH (Columbus, Ohio) to LAX (Los Angeles) in May (13,351 points) each way plus $5.60

CMH to AUA (Aruba) (15,678 points) each way plus $15.60 in tax

CMH to San Jose (Costa Rica) (13,026 points) each way plus $22.15 in tax

CMH to LAS (Vegas) (10,449 points) each way plus $5.60

LAS to OGG (Maui) (23,564 points) each way $5.60

Is it really worth the annual fee?

Are 4 free flights worth $69 or $99 – the quick answer! Yes!

40,000 miles and then you start to look at where you can go…..(there are other options that have bigger bonuses with larger spend requirements)

A friendly reminder – if you have a significant other or travel friend or travel buddy – pass thing along so you can experience the same things. Remember if you just add a person to your card- they are not eligible for the benefit.

👉Do you have a high schooler or college kid who wants to travel – this is a great first credit card and will cover Spring Break 🙌

I do receive referral credit – but those small credits encourage me to continue sharing details and ways to save! If this will not work for you, please share with a friend.

⭐️I have been asked if you have to use the points yourself and you do not. The points can be used to purchase a ticket for someone else.

⭐️No cancellation or change fees

⭐️No baggage costs

Where does Southwest fly? United States including Hawaii. Out of country….Cuba, Costa Rica, Aruba, Cancun….to name a few….
