I'm pretty sure if you book it through Amex travel you get 4x points on the PRG. Also from my understanding you get the 3x if you book directly through an airline however online travel agents (Expedia, kayak, etc) won't count. Then again, why would you need to book with them since you can get 4x through Amex travel and they all basically use the same search engines.

The Chase Southwest cards have 25k point sign-up bonuses. Not as great as the 50k they had before, but still something.
