5 2015-06-25 08:21:06 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 Travel Rewards Credit Card Analysis, these points had a fairly high flight redemption value of $1.81 per $100 spent. Plus, cardholders can earn 25,000 points after spending $1,000 in the first 3 months. As a bonus, there are no foreign transaction fees if you use the card out of country. Although the $99 annual fee might put some off, if you are a frequent flier this could be the perfect card for your travelling needs.
