Should I app for the chase southwest card?

Postby paparoach429 » Tue Jul 29, 2014 4:26 pm

I just got a letter in the mail for the Chase Southwest credit card with a bonus 50,000 points. Isn't the normal sign up bonus 40,000 points? Also, Are these points equivalent to the CSP points as far as cash back and travel? I have 75,000 points on my CSP right now. To my understanding there are 2 levels of the southwest card. For the difference in annual fee would it be smarter to go for the $100 annual fee level?

Sorry I personally know almost nothing about the card, other than it exists and it's a travel card for use with SWA.

Ultimate Rewards (CSP) are not the same as rapid Rewards.
You can transfer UR to Rapid Rewards at a 1:1 ratio but it would not be the same thing the other way around. With UR you get 1 cent per point when it comes to cash back. If, which I'm not 100% sure, you can redeem rapid rewards for cash back it won't be at a fixed rate
