Since flying Southwest at the end of December, I’ve written about being a big fan.
They also offer a really cool perk for kids, although it may be very hard to find.
I find Southwest points to be extremely valuable due to having Companion Pass status. This allows Kim to fly for free on any flight that I book using cash or points.
Companion Pass status is reached by earning 110,000 points in a year. I earned it by getting the Southwest Airlines Personal and Business credit cards. Each card came with a bonus of 50,000 miles after a minimum amount of spend. I earned the rest of the points needed by just using the credit cards to pay various bills.
Here is a way to earn some valuable Southwest Rapid Rewards Points by getting a new mortgage with Chase.
You can earn:
Mortgage Loan Amount Rapid Reward Points:
up to $249,999 12,500 points
$250,000- $500,000 25,000 points
$500,001 & higher 50,000 points
**Plus get 2,500 bonus points with a Chase mortgage on a new home purchase
The 2,500 bonus points are only available for new closed purchase mortgages for one to four family properties with residential mortgages.
Applications must be submitted by 4/21/13 to earn the bonus
