Plus, earn 40,000 points
after you spend $1,000 in the first three months of opening your account.3 This product is available to you if you do not have this card and have not received a new Cardmember bonus for this card in the past 24 months.

IMO this is a way better deal than open 2 cards to get the pass, the only downside is you probably will only get it through 2018 (compared to if you open in Jan 2018 you get till end of 2019)

SOUTHWEST® RAPID REWARDS® PROGRAM INFORMATION
The Southwest Rapid Rewards® Credit Card is brought to you by Southwest Airlines® and Chase. Southwest Airlines is responsible for the redemption of Rapid Rewards points toward benefits and services. The number of points needed for any particular Southwest flight is set by Southwest and will vary depending on destination, time, day of travel, demand, point redemption rate, and other factors and is subject to change. Rapid Rewards points can only be transferred to the primary Cardmember's Rapid Rewards account. All Rapid Rewards rules and regulations apply, please visit Southwest.com/rrterms. Southwest reserves the right to amend, suspend, or change the program and/or program rules at any time without notice. Rapid Rewards Members do not acquire property rights in accrued points and awards.

1 Visa Signature
You will first be considered for a Visa Signature card. If you do not qualify for the Signature card, you will automatically be considered for a Visa Platinum card. The Signature and Platinum cards have different credit availability and benefits. For pricing details, please see Pricing & Terms. Once your account is opened, please see Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards® Program Rules and Regulations and your credit card benefits materials for rewards and benefits details.

2 Companion Pass Terms
This product is not available to either (i) current cardmembers of any Rapid Rewards Credit Card, or (ii) previous cardmembers of any Rapid Rewards Credit Card who received a new cardmember bonus for a Rapid Rewards Credit Card within the last 24 months. Only the Rapid Rewards® Member who received this email/offer from Southwest Airlines® is eligible for this promotion. Offer is nontransferable. To qualify for this offer, (a) Member must have a valid California address as evidenced by their application for the Rapid Rewards® Credit Card, (b) Member must open a Rapid Rewards® Credit Card by November 30, 2017 and (c) please allow up to eight weeks for Companion Pass to be fulfilled after making first purchase. ("First Purchase" does not include balance transfers, cash advances, cash-like charges such as travelers checks, foreign currency, and money orders, any checks that access your account, interest, unauthorized or fraudulent charges, or fees of any kind, including an annual fee, if applicable.) To be eligible for this offer, account must be open and not in default at the time of fulfillment. Promotional Companion Pass is valid from the time promotion qualifications are met, through December 31, 2018. Promotional Companion Pass entitles Member to designate a Companion to fly for free (does not include taxes and fees from $5.60 one way) anywhere with the Member on the same Southwest Airlines flight that is purchased (with cash or points) by the Member. Please allow up to 15 business days after qualifying for promotional Companion Pass to receive your notification to designate your Companion. Promotional Companion Pass travel is subject to the government-imposed September 11th Security Fee of $5.60 per one-way trip and any foreign government taxes/fees if traveling internationally, all of which must be paid by credit card when the reservation is made. Any additional tax liability, if imposed, is the responsibility of the Companion Pass traveler. If Companion Pass is earned by flying 100 qualifying one-way flights or earning 110,000 qualifying points in the calendar year while qualified for promotional Companion Pass through December 31, 2018, the regular Companion Pass qualifications will supersede the promotional Companion Pass, entitling the Member to Companion Pass through December 31, 2019.

Please allow up to 8 weeks for bonus points to post to your Rapid Rewards® account. ("Purchases" do not include balance transfers, cash advances, travelers checks, foreign currency, money orders, wire transfers or similar cash-like transactions, lottery tickets, casino gaming chips, race track wagers or similar betting transactions, any checks that access your account, interest, unauthorized or fraudulent charges, and fees of any kind, including an annual fee, if applicable.)

Earning points
Rewards Program Agreement: For more information about the Rapid Rewards® Plus card rewards program, view the latest Rewards Program Agreement. We will mail your Rewards Program Agreement once your account is established. If you become a Chase Online customer, your Rewards Program Agreement will also be available after logging in to chase.com.

How you can earn points: You'll earn points when you, or an authorized user, use a Rapid Rewards® Credit Card to make purchases of products and services, minus returns or refunds. Buying products and services with your card, in most cases, will count as a purchase; however, the following types of transactions won't count as a purchase and won't earn points: balance transfers, cash advances and other cash-like transactions, lottery tickets, casino gaming chips, race track wagers or similar betting transactions, any checks that access your account, interest, unauthorized or fraudulent charges, and fees of any kind, including an annual fee, if applicable. 2 points: You'll earn 2 points for each $1 spent on purchases made directly with Southwest Airlines®, including flight, inflight, Southwest® gift card, and Southwest Vacations® package purchases, and at participating Rapid Rewards® hotel and rental car partners. 1 point: You'll earn 1 point for each $1 spent on all other purchases. 1 point on balance transfers: You'll earn 1 point for each $1 of the first $10,000 of balance transfers made during the first 90 days from your original account open date. 3,000 bonus points each account anniversary year: You'll receive 3,000 bonus points each account anniversary year. "Account anniversary year" means the year beginning with your account open date through the anniversary of your account open date, and each 12 months after that.

Information about earning/transferring points to Southwest Airlines®: Points earned during a billing cycle will be automatically transferred to Southwest Airlines after the end of each billing cycle. Points expiration: The points transferred to your Rapid Rewards account won't expire as long as your card account is open or you have flight-earning or Southwest Airlines partner-earning activity at least once every 24 months. If your card account is closed, the points in your Rapid Rewards account will expire if there isn't flight-earning or Southwest Airlines partner-earning activity at least once every 24 months. Losing points: You'll immediately lose all points that haven't been transferred to Southwest Airlines if your card account status changes, or your card account is closed for program misuse, fraudulent activities, failure to pay, bankruptcy, or other reasons described in the terms of the Rewards Program Agreement.

The account information in this email is only an estimate for a specific point in time. Please reference your Rapid Rewards account on Southwest.com® for the most up-to-date information on available points, tier status including tier qualifying points or flights, Companion Pass status including qualifying points or flights, and credit balances.

Not a bad deal. Compared to the other deal (2 cards, which comes up pretty often and I just got last week):

Pros:
- 1 card only
- Guaranteed Companion Pass for 2017/2018
- Won't accidentally mess up and not get companion pass

Cons:
- 40k points vs 60k (or 120k for 2 cards)
- California only, targeted only
- Companion pass can't be applied for 2018/2019

Overall good deal depending on your situation. 1 card vs 2 is definitely nice for a lot of people considering Chase's 5/24 and 2/30 rules.

For all flights it's basically b1g1 (no blackouts or limits). So if you travel with someone, effectively 50% off. Caveat is that you have to assign your companion and can only change them 3-4 times a year.

Plus you can use your points to pay for the flights...
