[Dead] Chase Southwest 50,000 Points Offer Available on both Personal Cards – Perfect for Companion Pass

Update 05/18/18: These links are no longer working.

Update 01/08/17: The referral links are working again so please consider using one of those.

Looks like the referral links are no longer working, but these direct links do:

The Offer

Chasereferafriend.com

The 50k referral offer on the Chase Southwest cards are back:

  • Signup for a new Chase Southwest Plus personal card and get 50,000 Southwest miles after spending $2,000 within 3 months
  • Signup for a new Chase Southwest Premier personal card and get 50,000 Southwest miles after spending $2,000 within 3 months
  • The referrer also gets a bonus of 5,000 (?) points per referral

There is a trick to get the 50,000 referral link, as outlined by Travelinpoints:

If you use the Twitter option, the generated link will show an offer similar to the public one of 40,000 points. However, if you use another option like Facebook, the 50k offer link will appear. There is an odd popup that shows about the offer not being available, but seconds later it clears up and shows the 50k offer properly.

Card Details

  • Plus version has $69 annual fee, NOT waived the first year; Premier version has $99 annual fee, NOT waived the first year
  • Plus version get 3,000 annual bonus, Premier version gets 6,000 points annual bonus
  • 2x points on Southwest purchases, 1x everywhere else

Our Verdict

The public links are 40,000 for both personal cards and 60,000 for the business card version. Use the public link when signing up for a business card and use a referral when signing up for either of the personal cards to get the 50k bonus. Just remember: 5/24 does apply on the Southwest cards which makes most of us ineligible for approval.

Those who are under 5/24 can easily get the Companion Pass for almost two years using the Southwest cards signup bonus. Either sign up for one personal and one business card to net 110,000 points. Or sign up for both personal cards which gets you 100,000 points + 4,000 points when meeting the minimum spend, then get the final 6,000 necessary points organically.

[READEverything You Ever Wanted To Know About The Southwest Companion Pass]

We have seen 60k offers on Southwest personal cards, so this isn’t the best ever, but probably not a good idea to hold your breath for those offers if you get a strong value out of the Companion Pass since timing the pass correctly is probably more important. [Update: seems there may be public links to the Southwest 50k bonuses as well.]

Please don’t leave Southwest referrals in the comments here, please head over to this dedicated thread instead. If you’re signing up for one of these cards, please use a fellow reader’s link from that thread.

DoC – Links are busted. Public offer is now 40k/40k I believe (according the Chase website, don’t know if there are still live 50k’s out there but these aren’t it).

Keep up the good work!

Seems like the referral and direct links to the 50k/$2k offers for both cards are dead. Can you confirm, Doc?

As of 4/14/18 does anyone have an active referral link for the premier 50K offer. I checked the master link page and I only see 40K on premier currently. All of the 50K referral links say “no longer available” The “plus” link in this article still links to a 50K offer. Thanks Doc for all the wonderful stuff u do!

Conditions on this offer:
“This product is available to you if you do not have this card and have not received a new Cardmember bonus for this card in the past 24 months.”

Got the award transferred to my SWA Rapid Rewards account in April. Do I need to wait until two years exactly has taken place before I re-up?

Thanks for your comments

Sorry, I meant I had Rapid Rewards Bonus transferred from my SWA Credit Card to my SWA RR Account in April 2016. Thank you!

I never had any southwest card before and currently has 0/24 count, so what’s the best strategy to get companion pass? Apply both southwest personal card on the same day for only one hard pull? or apply one personal and one business card? appreciate any thoughts. thanks.
