Southwest drops a 75,000 bonus on its credit cards.

Southwest loyalists should act quickly to snap up the popular carrier’s limited-time intro bonus of 75,000 points on all three of its credit cards. That’s worth up to $1000, and if used on their cheapest “Wanna Get Away” rate, can cover as many as four domestic roundtrips or a couple to the Caribbean. You’ve got until December 5th to grab a card.

The products utilizing the intro bonus are the Southwest Rapid Rewards PlusPremier, and Priority cards, which have an annual fees of $69, $99, and $149, respectively. All three require the same $3000 worth of spending in the first three months to claim the award.

The Priority Card is more than worth the little bit of extra cash per year. Holders get a $75 statement credit for travel on Southwest and an extra 7,500 points each, comfortably justifying the fee. Priority holders also get four upgraded flights a year where available.

A bigger plus for regular Southwest fliers is the huge leg-up the bonus gives them when striving for the coveted Companion Pass, which effectively lets you bring along a guest for two years on flights. Currently set at 125,000 points, you’re more than halfway there if you achieve the bonus. Small business owners could even combine a personal card with a business one and claim their companion pass in record time.
