50,000 points After First Purchase with Chase - Southwest Airlines Visa Premium Signature Card

50,000 points = upto $833 in flights

Annual Fee = $99 (Not waived for first year), but there is a 6,000 bonus points when you renew your card, meaning 6,000 points = $100 making it even.

With Chase, it's new card holders only. Just tried to upgrade my wife's Sapphire from the Regular to the Preferred to get the bonus and they wouldn't do it. Wouldn't even throw in any points for staying with the regular card.

is there any foreign transaction fee on this card ? I know the chase sapphire does not have any.

Update: Answering my own question, there is 3% foreign transaction fee. Chase beats this case in that case !!! I am travelling this year end out of USA for a while, and so, this might not be a very good deal for me !
