[Expired] Southwest Business Performance 100,000 Points Bonus with $25,000 Spend (Companion Pass With Single Credit Card Signup)

Update 2/8/21: Today is the last day for this deal.

Update 12/1/20: Deal available again, also increased bonuses on the personal cards.

The Offer

Direct Link to offer

Chase increased the public offer on the Southwest Business Performance card:

  • Earn 70,000 points after you spend $5,000 on purchases within 3 months of account opening.
  • Earn an additional 30,000 points after you spend an additional $20,000 on purchases within the first 6 months of account opening ($25,000 total)

Card Details

Card earns at the following rates:

  • 3x Southwest points per $1 spent on Southwest and Rapid Rewards hotel and car rental partner purchases
  • 2x Southwest points per $1 spent on purchases in the following rewards categories: social media and search engine advertising; internet, cable, and phone services
  • 1x Southwest points per $1 spent on all other purchases

Other Details:

  • $199 annual fee (not waived first year)
  • Four upgrade boardings per year when available
    • Every anniversary year you will be reimbursed for the purchase of 4 upgraded boardings. Upgraded boardings are positions A1-A15. These can be purchased on the day of travel only at either the departure gate or ticket counter and aren’t always available. Price of these upgraded boardings varies based on the itinerary, I think it’s usually $30-$40.
    • The benefits of being in this boarding position is you may be able to get an exit row seat (and at worst you’ll get another seat you want) and you can find overhead bin space.
    • Anniversary year is defined as ‘the year beginning with your account open date through the first statement date after your account open date anniversary, and the 12 monthly billing cycles after that each year.’
  • Up to $100 Global Entry or TSA PreCheck Fee Credit
  • No foreign transaction fees
  • 9,000 anniversary points each year
  • Inflight WiFi Credits, up to a total of 365 $8 credits per year for all WiFi transactions on the overall business card account
  • Earn tier qualifying points towards A-list status
  • Points earned count towards Companion Pass
  • Employee cards at no additional cost
  • 5/24 does apply to this card

Our Verdict

The base offer here is the same as the previous offer, but now they added the additional tier to get an extra 30,000 points with $20,000 additional spend. You’re getting a bonus 1.5x on the final $20,000 in spend for a total of 30,000 points (on top of regular credit card earn).

It’s not amazing, especially if you’re giving up a referral bonus (e.g. from a spouse), but the numbers work out perfectly for the Companion Pass 125,000 points requirement making it overall a really nice deal. It especially makes sense especially for someone who anyway finds Southwest points worth earning at 1x, or for someone who can make use of the 2x or 3x categories offered on the card.

The referral and public offer is still 70k points on $5k spend, it’s not known if they’ll change the referral offer to match this one. If you did signup up with the referral or web offer, you should be able to get it matched with this public 100k offer. Check out these other Things to Know about Chase as well.

Do not get discouraged, but this is a public offer for this card at the moment (and has been for awhile). It is a great card if you are after Companion Pass, as it can be paired with practically any other card to get you a CP. Even another business card (Premier) would work for that purpose too.

It has a number of benefits to offset the higher AF such as wi-fi purchase credits, Global Entry credit, priority boarding credits and higher anniversary bonus, so all together hopefully can reconcile a higher AF for you.

Good Luck.

Can you get 2 with 2 different EINs [same SSN?]

VL

@jpv you cannot. A friend of mine tried that a few years ago with Biz Premier card and did not get the second bonus. Apparently Chase tracks it also by the RR account #, and you are not eligible for the same product bonus twice if it linked to the same RR account (even though the biz entities are different).

This was the case 3-4 years ago, so unless somebody has a more recent DP, I would consider that a NO.

BUT…

Since now Chase has 2 different biz cards, and unlike the personal cards the verbiage on Biz cards is specific to the particular card, not the “family” of cards – you can get bonuses under 2 biz cards even under the same biz entity if you get approved for both. Have a couple of DPs for that too (one DP under the diff biz, and one DP under the same SP).

Unlike SW biz cards, with INK cards you CAN get the bonus from the same INK card under different biz entities.

Good luck.

VL, thanks so much!

I’ve been able to rack up quite a few Inks with different cards/EINs. Probably had over a dozen in the past few 5 years..

I’ll try the other business card and see if that helps [screwed up a bonus and got it 2 days before the end of the year for the companion pass]/

@jpv Glad to help!
Good luck!

Is it possible to get the CP with the personal card and $10k spent? There’s a reduced amount of points required for some people (100k points) and there’s a temporary 5x return on southwest purchases until 3/31/21.

So could we spend $2,500 speed on southwest flights/gift cards (12,500 points) + $7,500 spend at 1x (7,500 points) that would be 20k points + 80k SUB for the total $10k spend.

Typo $25,000 not $20,000 “Earn an additional 30,000 points after you spend an additional $20,000 on purchases within the first 6 months of account opening.”

Same for me. Chuck looks like its dead. What are your thoughts on the 40k + 200 statement credit for the personal card?

Does the global entry fee credit have to be used for me?

No, you can pay for anybody.
Just charge the fee to the card, and you will see the credit. Have not used it on this card, but on other Chase cards post practically instantly (as charge posts).

Is there anyway to pay this fee online? Or did you have to swipe in person?

You never had Global Entry, I assume?
