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.

Here's a nice little tactic to hit 6000 points.

1. Go through SW shopping portal and buy a physical sears gift card for $858.

2. Get 6x points on purchase giving you 5148 RR points.

3. Get 1x points for spend on card which gives you 858 points

4. 5148+858=6006.

That's assuming you can cover the funds of course.

Like I said prior though...make a small test purchase to make sure sears gift cards get points.
but you're going to be stuck with sears gift cards

Many ways to burn through a sears gift card including but not limited toolook around

Purchase of anything at kmart/kmart express/lands end.

Selling back to plasticjungle or cardpool.com

If you can cover the funds and you plan on buying gas for the next 6 months...(which you probably will)...you haven't lost anything.

Selling a Sears GC(to cardpool) worth $858 would net you $703.56 cash, essentially costing you ~$155 and waiting about 2 weeks. (1 week waiting for the card from Sears and another week or so with cardpool, maybe more)

However, if you are actually going to use it, this seems like a good alternative.

Also, what do you mean by the gas comment? Confused

There is a kmart express 1 mile from my house which sells gas and takes sears gift cards. If you are fortunate enough to have one of those around you...you essentially just bought gas for 6 months and scored a companion pass and SW points.

What is your #3? I don't understand that one.

This is all assuming that the gift cards would count towards points but according to your earlier post, doesn't look like it. Thanks.

//Now i get number 3 (double dip from your link). Thanks again. Will try with a small card I guess. Just takes so much time with the physical cards having to be mailed.

If you use your SW card you will automatically get 1x SW points per dollar spent anywhere. 2x on SW.com purchases. That's base points. The 6x points is extra.

When you click the link, the loading page fine print says "Not eligible on gift cards, gift certificates or any other similar cash equivalents as of 11/1/12."

Yes the terms say this, but frequent miler has done tests on sears gift card purchases through different portals with some success.

So I applied and approved for Premier (Personal) and Business cards..However I just got an email from SWA RR that my Premier and Plus cards are on the way...Is this a mistake or do I get approved for Plus automatically?

I applied for both the southwest credit cards. I already have 6,000+ points in my RR with previous southwest travel. After i spend the 4k in two months will the 6,000 existing points count towards the companion pass?

Depends. Only points earned in this calendar year count towards your companion pass.

Right, and it tells you how many CP points you've acquired (bottom left I think).

Quote from Mystereevan View Post :
I was looking at ways to earn that last 6,000 points. I was going to order flowers for the 1,000 bonus from Teleflora but saw this

"Must provide Rapid Rewards account number at the time of purchase. Please allow six to eight weeks for point(s) to post to your account. All Rapid Rewards rules and regulations apply. Total points include 1,000 base points. Bonus points do not count toward tier status or Companion Pass status."

Can anyone comment if it worked or not for them? Has that clause always been there and the points just still worked towards CP?
I was going to order Teleflora flowers also to get the 1k bonus points. I was wondering the same thing. It states total points include 1,000 base points, but then mentions bonus points do not count. Has anyone had points posted from this deal that counted towards the CP? Confused

Just fyi, I'm running a test on the SW shopping portal with sears. I just bought a $10 physical gift card for the 6x points. I will report back to let everyone know if I get the 6x RR points.
