Southwest Airlines Credit Card by Chase | Get a Free Southwest Airlines Flight

I’ve never been ashamed of the fact that I’m a big fan of Southwest Airlines.  The Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards® Plus Credit Card makes it even better.  Basically, I love the price.  I am one of the people who actually likes their customer service, and I think they are more friendly than other airlines.

I’ve even been a proud owner of the card.
Here’s some details on the card:

    We have this card and LOVE it! Have had it for nearly 10 years. The annual fee doesn’t go away. But we get tons of tickets and have only one time ever had a problem scheduling a flight with them — and to be fair — we were trying to schedule a Christmas time flight in October. And if your ticket expires, you can renew it for up to one year for a $50 fee which is like buying a round trip ticket for $50. Not as good as free but still good! We are using 4 free tickets to an upcoming trip to Disney World, a savings of about $1600 and one of the only reasons we can go.

    And SW Airlines is a great airline. The only one that still lets you check your bags for free — a huge savings. And I like not having an assigned seat. I would rather pick WHO I am sitting next to versus WHERE I am sitting. ;)

    Yeah, I’d have to agree that Southwest is actually a pretty great airline. My husband doesn’t like it, but I think it’s a great bargain.

    How long after making a purchase with your Rapid Rewards Credit Card does it take to receive your free flight and you are able to book it? Thx!

      You should get your points 6 – 8 weeks after your first transaction. Once the points are posted you can book immediately.

      Remember, you’re not getting a free flight voucher, but 50,000 miles that can be applied towards free flights. Those will post at the end of a billing cycle within 6-8 weeks, but usually sooner.
