Going anywhere this holiday season? The Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards® Premier card is just in time to help you out with free flights. All you have to do is apply for the card and then spend $2,000 in the first 3 months of card ownership and voila—2 free flights on Southwest are yours! It's also easy to rack up more free flights as users earn 2 points per $1 spent on Southwest Airlines flights, AirTran Airways flights, and on Rapid Rewards Hotel and Car Rental purchases. All other purchases will earn 1 point per $1.
Cardholders can redeem their points for Southwest flights and international flights with 50+ global carriers as well as hotel stays, rental cars and popular gift cards. And if you're travelling outside of the U.S., there are no foreign transaction fees, a huge plus. We really like the Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards Premier card and it ranked well in our annual Travel Rewards Analysis with a high flight redemption value of $1.92 per $100 spent.
