I just saw on Southwest Airline's site that the 50K Chase Premier credit card offer is back. There is a $99 annual fee that is not waived, but the 50K points are worth about $833 and they're good towards the very valuable companion pass (110K points needed in a year).

You should be able to get this card if you had the Plus card ($69 annual fee) before as they're considered different products.

What happened to us: both my card and my wife's had my RR#. Spend for both cards was posted to my account for the first month. When we both hit the $2K spend, my 50K points were posted to my RR account. My wife's was denied - because the name on the RR account did not match the name on the credit card.

After a call to Chase they posted the 50K to my wife's RR# (and took my wife's spend off my RR account and posted it to my wife's.) So apparently they checked the names only when the 50K was posted in my case. YMMV.
That sucks. Thanks for the information. Anyone have this work for them?

Stupid question: does the annual fee count toward the $2000 minimum spend?

I really don't see how they can justify to me the $99 fee the first year then. I will try and get it waived.

after the second.

apply now, get charged fee, hold card for 1 year, get 6k points and get hit with another annual fee. so you're paying $200 for 6k points=$.033/point, it's in the milevalue link in the wiki. if you get the personal card instead, you get 3k points for $140=$.046/point.

Both 50k bonus points posted to my RR account the same day that my Chase statements were available. I'm short about 2k points for the CP right now. The points earned from the RR shopping portal would get me there, but the points are taking forever to post to my RR account. I know the website states additional 60-90 days for the points to post to my RR account, but has anyone had their points posted to their account a lot sooner? I'm trying to take a trip somewhere end of May. TIA!

Yeah I wouldn't count on them coming before your June trip. Best to just do the choice points purchase and conversion.

Success!! They haven't posted to my RR account yet, but according to my statements, I received the 50k bonus points for BOTH personal cards - plus and premier. With spending, 54k on one card and 52.5k on the other. Like a previous poster, I'm waiting for shopping portal points to hit my account and then I should be over the 110k limit for the companion pass. Hooray!!

Thanks for the update. It makes me feel a little more confident. Did you adjust your statement date? I just got both my cards (personal plus/personal premier) within the past few days and I can hit the 2k spending on both by the end of this weekend.

Repped.

If you look at your pdf statement on the Chase website, there's a section on the first page that says "Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards Card Summary" and shows your points for the month.

I didn't bother adjusting my statement date since there were mixed results from other users when they tried. A few people reported that when they called to adjust it, Chase actually moved it *out* an additional month. I didn't want to risk it. I sent Chase a message through the website to find out when my closing date was, and it was exactly one month + one day from the day I applied and was approved. I didn't expedite shipping for the cards, so I had about three weeks between the time I received the cards and my statement closed.
