Over the past few days, I’ve seen a TON of posts from other bloggers talking about how the Southwest 50,000 mile credit card is “going away”

  • Southwest 50,000 Point Credit Card Offering Ending
  • Last Call: 50,000+ Southwest Points
  • Last Chance: 50,000 Rapid Rewards Sign-Up Bonus Ends Tomorrow

I may have missed a few as well.  Now, I don’t want to turn into George from Travel Blogger Buzz, but I am disappointed that none of those folks mentioned the fact that there is STILL a referral link out there for people to get 50,000 Southwest Rapid Rewards miles out there.

I understand that many travel bloggers have relationships with banks that provide them with personal affiliate links, and that they have an incentive to get sales through these links (not only does it pay them hundreds of dollars per successful application, but if they don’t sell “enough”, then they are in danger of losing their links).  So I get that there is an incentive to have people apply through each blogger’s personal link.

Still, if you are someone who positions yourself as providing “travel advice”, I think that it is appropriate to let your readers know ALL the options.

Maybe they’re saving that so they can write another post tomorrow?!? 😀

Southwest refer a friend 50,000 mile offer

The offer that I’ve seen through says that it will be active through at least January 31, 2015.


That takes you to a landing page which suggests that you can apply through the end of February even


This is for the Southwest Personal Premier credit card.  For more information on the active refer a friend links that I am aware of, see the posts below.

I do have a link for the Southwest refer a friend 50,000 miles offer, though I suspect that I have already earned the maximum referral bonus (it’s capped at 50,000 bonus miles per calendar year).  If you have an active refer a friend link, feel free to post it in the comments.
