southwest50kreferralThe “regular” offer for Southwest credit cards is earning 25,000 miles after spending $2,000 in the first 3 months.  I put regular in quotation marks, because it seems like the offer goes up to 50,000 often enough that it seems silly to apply for a “mere” 25,000 miles 🙂

Credit Card referrals

I don’t want this to be a blog that is constantly talking about credit card signups, but I hope that you will indulge me at least a little!  It’s actually one of the sore spots in the travel hacking community.  There are some bloggers that are viewed as just shills for the credit card companies.  I have read commentary from some of the more seasoned bloggers out there lamenting the fact that everything is so focused on steering readers into credit card signups.  Frankly, although I can see their point, a lot of it is just too much drama for me so I tend to just ignore that.

The fact is that many bloggers earn a referral bonus for credit card signups that are generated by their blog.  In a perfect world it wouldn’t affect the content, but I’m sure that at least for some blogs that it does. But I know for myself, when I signup for new credit cards, I like to go through the referral links of bloggers that I enjoy reading, in an attempt to help support them.  I know have gotten requests from readers asking if there were any links that they could use that would support me.

Southwest referral offer

southwestlogoAll of that is a long-winded way of saying that I got an email from Chase the other day saying I could “refer” my friends.  You get the 50,000 point offer and if you sign up and use the card, then I get 5,000 points.  This is the best offer that I know of, and if you are looking to support the blog, I of course always appreciate it.

I have written before about Southwest and the companion pass.  I think that Southwest is probably the best airline for getting free family travel, and I have this card and definitely recommend it.  Some of the benefits are:

  • 50,000 Southwest points (they say that’s good for 2 roundtrip flights but in reality, it’s probably way more depending on how expensive your flights are)
  • No foreign transaction fees
  • Gets you almost halfway to the companion pass, which lets a companion fly free on every flight you take for up to 2 years
  • The advantage of Southwest is that because the points are worth a fixed amount, you can book any flight on points – no blackout dates

So there you have it – if you have been dying to support Points With a Crew and just itching to know the way to do it (right? right? anyone? 😀 ), here you go – Southwest 50,000 point offer.  As always, your support is appreciated.
