5 2015-02-20 09:56:14 Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards® Premier Credit Card rewards it's users with points that can be used on Southwest flights, international flights (new!), hotel stays, rental cars and a variety of other options. In our 2014 Travel Rewards Credit Card Analysis, these points had a strong flight redemption value of $2.04 per $100 spent.
