50,000 Point Offer for the Southwest Credit Cards! Amazing Opportunity to Earn the Companion Pass!

The Southwest Credit Card has increased its offer for both the personal credit cards where you can now earn 50,000 bonus points after meeting the minimum spend requirement! This is an excellent offer so early in the year!
