Thanks to a special, limited-time welcome bonus on Southwest Airlines’ co-branded consumer credit cards, Chase and Southwest are making saving on your summer travels even easier. The new Southwest signup bonus of 60,000 points plus a 30% off voucher is the latest addition to an impressive line-up of co-branded airline cards. Here are all the details:
60,000-Point Bonus Offer from Southwest
Southwest Airlines is looking to spice up your summer vacation plans with a new offer for successful applicants for the Southwest credit cards from Chase. For a limited time only, new cardmembers can earn 60,000 Bonus Points and a 30% off promo code after spending $3,000 on purchases in the first three months from account opening.
Cardmembers will receive their 30% off coupon once they reach the offer’s spending requirements. The 30% promo code is valid for one-way or round-trip Wanna Get Away, Wanna Get Away Plus, Anytime, and Business Select fares booked by October 31, 2024. The 30% savings offer is not available to existing Southwest credit cardholders or anyone who received a new cardmember bonus from Chase within the last 24 months. Southwest business credit cards are also ineligible.
Here are the eligible Southwest personal credit cards:

The 60,000-point welcome offer doubles the previous welcome offer from Chase. Adding a promo code is refreshing, as it breaks Southwest’s “Companion Pass” trend with some of the more recent offers. The Companion Pass allows a companion to fly with a traveler for just the cost of taxes and fees. And while that sounds great, some recent offers provided a Companion Pass for three months or less.
About Rapid Rewards
The Rapid Rewards program is the frequent flyer loyalty program of Southwest Airlines. The program helps members earn points by flying or spending with Southwest partners. Points are redeemable for flights, hotels, gift cards, and more. Members can also earn status in the program, with additional benefits such as priority boarding and bonus points.
The Companion Pass is highly coveted and only achievable by making Southwest a regular part of your travel plans. Members must make at least 100 qualifying one-way trips with Southwest in a calendar year to earn a pass – no mean feat. The only other way to obtain this pass is by accumulating 110,000 points. The easiest way to achieve this lofty goal is through the signup bonuses with many Southwest Airlines credit cards.
