Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards® Plus Credit Card from Chase. The Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards Plus Credit Card is currently offering 25,000 Rapid Rewards points after your first purchase worth a Free Flight. This is based on the fact that a roundtrip $416 Wanna Get Away fares would cost 24,960 points. In reality, the value of the bonus is $416 towards Southwest airfare, and you can use the points as needed for multiple flights.
The card features 2 points per dollar spent on Southwest airlines purchases, 2 points per dollar spent on Southwest hotel and car rental partner purchases, and 1 point per dollar on everything else. Each point is worth 1.67 cents towards Southwest Wanna Get Away fares. The annual fee is $69, and each anniversary you get 3,000 points that are worth another $50 towards Wanna Get Away fares.
In addition to Southwest flights, you can redeem the points on hotel stays, car rentals, international flights, and gift cards. For gift cards in general, 5,000 points = $50 value. Specifically, you can redeem 25,000 points for $250 in gift certificates at Amazon.com, Home Depot, Lowe’s, and Walmart. Useful alternative if you don’t live in a city served by Southwest.
