And of course, then there’s the carrier’s Companion Pass, one of the most lucrative options out there. We’ve devoted a separate video to this perk, but you can also check out our guide for how to earn the Companion Pass for additional details.
If you don’t currently have a card that earns Southwest points, the Southwest Rapid Rewards Priority Credit Card could be a terrific option. Now through June 10, 2019, you’ll earn a sign-up bonus of 60,000 points after you spend $2,000 on purchases in the first three months of account opening. The card includes four upgraded boardings per year, 20% off inflight purchases and a $75 annual Southwest credit to help offset the $149 annual fee. You’ll even take home 7,500 points when you renew your card each year.
