Southwest Airlines has announced a massive new welcome offer on the popular Southwest Rapid Rewards Premier Business Credit Card. Here’s how to earn up to 120,000+ Rapid Rewards® points for a limited time only.
120,000-Point Welcome Offer for Southwest Rapid Rewards™ Premier Business Card
Chase and Southwest Airlines have a new, limited-time welcome offer on the Southwest Rapid Rewards Premier Business Credit Card. From July 11 and running until August 28, new Rapid Rewards Premier Business accounts can take advantage of an elevated welcome offer of 120,000 Rapid Rewards® points after meeting minimum spending requirements.
The 120,000-point bonus breaks down as follows:
- Earn 60,000 points after spending $3,000 on qualifying purchases in the first three months from account opening, and
- Earn an additional 60,000 points after spending $15,000 in the first nine months.
That generous welcome offer has an estimated value of around $1,800 when redeemed towards award flights with Southwest – an exceptional value for a fairly reasonable spend for a small-to-medium-sized company that plans to issue multiple complimentary employee cards.
Regardless of the welcome offer, all Southwest Rapid Rewards Premier Business cardmembers enjoy an impressive range of Southwest-centric card benefits. Cardmembers receive two EarlyBird Check-ins® per year; the first two checked bags fly for free on Southwest flights (weight and size limits apply); and they can earn impressive rewards with every eligible purchase:
- Cardmembers earn 3X points per dollar on Southwest Airlines® purchases,
- 2X points per dollar on Rapid Rewards hotel and car rental partner purchases,
- 2X points per dollar on social media, search engine marketing, local transit and commuting, including rideshare services, and
- 1X points per dollar on all other eligible purchases.
