I just saw on Southwest Airline's site that the 50K Chase Premier credit card offer is back. There is a $99 annual fee that is not waived, but the 50K points are worth about $833 and they're good towards the very valuable companion pass (110K points needed in a year).

You should be able to get this card if you had the Plus card ($69 annual fee) before as they're considered different products.

I took advantage of this promotion back in 2011. I was approved for the SW Premiere card in October, 2011. I spend 2k in the first two months, got my 50k points and was a happy camper. Once my anniversary date came around, I canceled the card (November 2012) to avoid paying the $99 annual fee. I still have a RR account and still have 6k points in it (They added 6k points for my anniversary even though I canceled my credit card). My questions is will i be eligible to receive the same promotion even though I took advantage of this promotion is the past? It has been around 4 months since I canceled my card. If not, will I be eligible to get any other card that will give me the 50k points? Thank You

After I was approved for both the Plus and Premiere, I called to have them rush shipped to me. They arrived the next day, but just yesterday I got duplicates of them! Heh. I'm guessing they didn't actually stop the original shipment. So now I have duplicates of each card. Oh well.

Does anyone have any experience with moving your bill date around? The reason I'm asking is because I've already hit the 2k per card, and I'm trying to get the bonus points to post as soon as possible, as I am trying to book a trip relatively soon, and it's my understanding that the bonus points will show up when my billing cycle completes. Right now it says my next payment is due on 5/6/2013, which I'm assuming means that the billing cycle will complete somewhere around 4/22. Ideally I want the billing cycle to end ASAP to get the points ASAP, but I'm not sure if that's possible?

I plan to call them later, but was just curious if anyone had any experience with this.
I, too, was in the same situation as you. I applied for my card on March 1, received it on March 4, met spending requirement on March 5. My original due date was mid May, When I called Chase regarding bill due date, I was still told the due date will be May because of some blah blah reason regarding number of days in billing cycle. Anyway, in reality, my statement closed on March 16, just 15 days after I applied and was approved for this card. My points were already posted on WN RR acct. bounce

You should be able to apply for the SW Personal Plus card or either of the business cards and receive the bonus after completing the spend requirements.

Same terms as many airline miles..."**Points don’t expire as long as you have flight or Partner earning activity every 24 months."

If you buy something through their mile store every year or two, you'll stay active.
Thanks Smilie

Thanks Smilie
Just want to point out:

This does not however mean that SW can't devalue the points over time. So what might be 2 Roundtrip fares* today, could be 1 Roundtrip fare 2 years from now.


* Assuming 25000 points per RT fare.

For those that were approved instantly...how did you find out? Did you apply online or call in? My husband applied for the personal Plus and the business Premiere on Saturday. We received emails confirming receipt of the applications, but nothing else.

Personally, I guess I would simply live with what they tell me. I am sure it may depend how long you have had the new card. But, just give it a day or two, and see what they say. They have pleasantly surprised me on more than one occasion.

If you filled out the application online:
After you fill out the application and submit you should have gotten a screen that said Congratulations and told you how much you were approved for. If you did not get this and you did not receive emails telling you congratulations with your approval and your limit amount, call the Reconsideration lines.

They will either tell you that you were approved or that you were denied and for what reasons. And then you can use the tips previously stated to get them to approve it.

Chase is weird about this. They will show a due date in the future when your card first shows up on the chase website, but in actuality it closes much sooner. Call chase and verify WHEN the current statement will close. When I did this they actually told me a different date then when I estimated.
Thanks for this information. Rep'd.
Quote from rakisto View Post :
Chase allows you to move the close date but it activates after your first statement date. You are better off just waiting for the first one...

For example, if yours closes on the 24th, and you want to move it to say the 20th? It will actually post on April 20th and you'll end up waiting a month+. Yes... i learned this the hard way :'(
Yes, this is what I was afraid of, and is why I've hesitated. I don't want them to move it out even further. Thanks, Rep'd.

I hope I'm in that same boat! If I call Chase, will they be able to tell me when my statement actually SHOULD close? Or do the call reps not have access to that kind of information? Thanks, Rep'd.

Anyone shop the RR portal often enough to know how regularly the 4x or 6x points promotions are offered for the big stores? Sears, specifically, but also good to know for JCP, Lowes, HD, etc.

Google has info about the frequency for AA and UR portals, but nothing to speak of for RR.

I earned 6x points last week for a Sears purchase that included a gift card. I'm trying to decide if I want to wait for another bonus promo to try the double dip, or if the current 2x offer is the best I can hope for in the foreseeable future.

Mine is a related question, does anyone know how often the gift card "sales" happen. For example, the last time I had this card there was a random week where Amazon Gift cards cost slightly less points/miles (maybe 10% off) thereby making my Amazon mega GC buying much more worth it. (I don't travel a lot, so that is not related to this question).

So, does anyone know how often the rapid reward products go "on sale?"
