With the Chase Freedom, you get 5% back on Grocery Stores. It seems you can purchase Southwest Gift Cards from certain places like Safeway (Randalls) and Kroger. This would be a better alternative than using the Southwest Card. Anyone try something similar before? Flights to California from Texas are creeping up to $400+ so we'd be looking at a 20$ cash back as apposed to 800 points (equivalent to 8$?).
