[Rumor] Chase Will Launch Premium Southwest Card [Additional Details]
Update: This card is now live, more details here.
We now have some additional details regarding the card:
- Launch date set for sometime in July
- Annual fee of $150
- Will come with a discount on inflight items
- Comes with upgrades for A1-15 boarding
- Sign up bonus of 70,000 points
I thought readers could use some cheering up after the launch of the pathetic Barclays Arrival Premier, devaluation of the IHG card & new restriction on Southwest cards. This comes from a normally very reliable source. Chase and Southwest have plans to launch a premium Southwest card later this year (Q3), card will come with a number of Southwest benefits and is being positioned as a premium card. Sign up bonus is set to be high enough that if paired with another 50,000 point bonus you’d have enough for a companion pass (e.g it’s 70,000 or more). This is one of the reasons the new restriction was added to Southwest cards.
