I've had a Southwest card for about 5 years. Every time I try to get points with a new card I'm turned down because I have one. Can I cancel the card I have and get another card for more points? If I cancel my first card will I lose my points?

Delete the card and apply for a new one after a couple months. You don't lose points

so after your $5000 spend + the 30,000 points, you'd be A-list?

Anyone know if this stacks with referral bonuses for current SW cardholders? I am a Priority cardholder and this deal would work well for my sister but not sure if I send her the referral link I have, if it will kill the "instant CP with 5k spend" offer.

Nope, You'd have a Companion pass, but you would both not have any better boarding position.

A- list is only from flying. Companion pass qualifying points are different from tier qualifying points (TQP) which are only available from flying and a small bonus from the upper level credit cards

Some hotels through Southwest give cheap points upgrades. You could go to Vegas and get 5000 points per night and only pay about $80 extra for those points (basically at cost).

I'm considering that for December if I'm close to CP again. Too bad they don't offer it at most hotels.

I don't know much about the companion pass. Is this a good deal for a family of 4 who'd like to go to Hawaii this summer? $5k min spend shouldn't be an issue - we have $4k car insurance due early March. Is the companion pass really something worthwhile? I don't know how much airline we'd use after summer thru Feb 2022, though.

I use mine all the time. It's all a function of your travel capability.

We got a bonus pass for Jan and Feb so we took the kids on weekend trips every other week.

If you have the time to travel for leisure, or can take your companion on work trips, it's basically free money. The only downside is it really only "saves" money on last minute bookings that are expensive. If you plan ahead, the cost of the saved ticket is lower, and you end up spending much more than that in hotel, car, food, etc.

So yes, you save money... but you end up being poor. 😄

No, companion pass is not a "status". You can earn companion pass with credit card spend only.

To get a-list/preferred you have to fly. There are some cards that give you 1500 tier qualifying points every $10k spend but I haven't done the math if it's even possible that route.

It used to be you could get the bonus every 24 months so I would basically stagger the cards (plus/premier) every other year so I was getting one bonus a year. Do this and fly a lot and you always get companion pass. However... I have heard they changed to only 1 bonus every 24 months for personal cards (any flavor) and the business card. I assume eventually they'll do like amex and do 1 bonus per lifetime per specific type.

Another thing that doesn't work that I believed used to in the past. I signed up my wife but used my RR number only to find all the points went to her RR account.

Quote from 4merMeatEatr :
So you're advocating opening TWO credit accounts, with TWO minimum spend requirements, and TWO annual fees?

Keeping in mind that business cards for non business owners is not so easy to get any more with simply your SSN and lying about your Ebay sales.

Your scenario is one path to the CP if someone chooses to it, but that does not make this a "poor" deal for many who want a simpler path to the CP.
It is difficult to get the business card now. With that being said, I still think this deal sucks. I wouldnt waste my time with 30k points and a year of companion pass. Id rather have 100k+ points and a companion pass.
