A lot easier to get their other 2 cards even at 40,000 points. Much better when the incentives are in place for 50,000 points

Why would I get a card where I have to charge $15,000 to get 65,000 points when I can get their other 2 cards and get 80,000 points for charging $4000 total?

But you get $75 back in travel credit, so $75 annual fee. Also, the Upgraded boardings are $30-40 apiece.

The Premier is my main credit card due to the companion pass. I may give this a go come January since ive already earned the CP for next year.

Nope.

Those perks are perks, they do not allow you to pay less than $149 for the card each year. You can't trade them in for cash.

Cash is fungible.

Assuming you were going to spend cash on what those perks get you then one exactly offsets the other dollar for dollar.

So assuming you were planning to spend at least $75 in a given year on Southwest airlines anyway, you are in fact "trading in" that perk for the $75 in cash you now get to keep in your pocket.


Between that and the 7500 anniversary points each year this card is actually "cheaper" on a year over year basis than the lower-fee southwest cards for people who would be spending that money anyway.



it's not a super duper awesome card, but it's measurably better than the existing ones for people in those circumstances.


The only crap part here is the second signup bonus (25k) requires an insane amount of spend for the points... only the 40k bonus is "easy"- so if you're chasing companion pass- rather than looking for the best SW card to keep year over year- then taking one of the other personal cards when they run a 50 or 60k signup might be a better option.

The majority of these signup offers that come with a "secondary kicker", such as the spend five figures in the year to hit an extra bonus, that part is normally a bad deal. If you are actually interested in maximizing points earning, that $15k spending would be much, much better put towards minimum spending requirements for other cards that have their own bonuses.

That makes absolutely no sense... you're just dumb if you dont see the logic vastmax is making.

and assuming you crash and die on the flight then it won't matter.

if you assume things then really nothing factual matters.

the fact is that you must give them $149 to get the card. whether or not you participate in any of their perks beyond that is irrelevant to that fact. assume all you want though I guess.... I'll just assume that everyone pays for flights with 20% discounted gift cards......
