5 2014-06-30 14:32:54 Southwest Airlines® Rapid Rewards® Premier 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. Plus, cardholders can earn a roundtrip flight 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.
