The contactless Southwest Rapid Rewards Premier Visa card is best suited for Southwest Airlines enthusiasts, earning points back on Southwest flights and at hotel and car rental partners. But with an annual fee of $99 and no enticing airline benefits, it doesn’t quite stack up to other cards in its pricing tier.
Due to the impact of COVID-19, for eligible card accounts approved from 1/1/20 through 3/31/20, the period to make eligible purchases to earn the welcome bonus will be extended for an additional three months.
The Southwest Rapid Rewards® Premier Credit Card offers 2X points per dollar for Southwest Airlines purchases, as well as at Rapid Rewards hotel and car rental partners.
