Southwest is offering targeted credit card holders a bonus offer this holiday season.
I received an offer for my Chase Southwest Rapid Rewards Visa personal card. With the offer, I can earn 3,000 bonus Rapid Rewards points for spending $6,000 on my card in a limited amount of time.
This works out to a bonus of .5 points per $1. Let’s find out more of the details.
Like I stated above, I can earn a bonus of 3,000 Rapid Rewards points. Not bad but it takes a pretty signicifant spend to earn those points.
To earn the bonus, I need to spend $6,000 with my card from now until January 31, 2016.
The terms & conditions state that I need to enroll in the offer by 1/31/16 11:59 p.m. ET. I wonder if this means that you can enroll in the offer after already completing some spend, which would then count towards the $6,000 total needed? (I’m pretty sure it does.)
Points should post to accounts 6 to 8 weeks after qualifying for bonus points.
Like I stated above, this is a targeted offer. “This promotional offer is non-transferable and applies only to the account ending in the last 4 digits referenced in this offer“.
Will I try to earn the bonus?
Quick answer: No.
I find a $6,000 spend to be a pretty hefty requirement to earn 3,000 bonus points for. I currently have the Southwest Companion Pass and a good amount of points which I haven’t had a chance to use. I see putting $6,000 in spend better used to help complete the spend needed for signup bonuses or with other cards.
