I received an email to upgrade my Southwest Premier card to this and receive 5000 points. Between the $75 towards flights and $125 in reward points plus 4 seat upgrades sounds good. For Premier, I'm paying $99 a year and get 6000 points (worth about $100).

Why not cancel the premier and get a new priority and get the signon bonus?

T&C say that you don't receive the bonus if you've had a Southwest card within the last two years. Actual wording:
The product is not available to either (i) current Cardmembers of any Southwest Rapids Rewards® Credit Card, or (ii) previous Cardmembers of any Southwest Rapid Rewards Credit Card who received a new Cardmember bonus within the last 24 months.
So maybe one could cancel and get the bonus if you haven't received a bonus in the past 24 months.

yes, as long as your last bonus was 24 months ago or longer you can cancel your current card and get the new signup bonus.

The other SW personal cards also had annual fees, but offered a lot less for them. This card is actually cheaper year-over-year once that's factored in.

(that said- if chasing the companion pass, one of the others might be a better option because it'll be easier to reach 110k in the same year with less spend)

That is the same wording as the Chase Sapphire cards. I downgraded my preferred(you have to cancel Southwest card) and a week later signed up for the Reserve. Things to keep in mind are 5/24 rule and if you don't fly Southwest a ton the Reserve is a better point value. So is the Preferred for that matter.

I'm confused. I've had my premier card over 3 years so no bonus since then. If I cancel it now and sign up for the Priority card will I get 40000 or 6000 points?
