A month ago I wrote about Chase’s introduction of an Airtran Visa. The signup bonus was 16 A+ Rewards credits after $1000 spend within 3 months (plus 2 business class one-segment upgrades after first purchase).
Prior to the official launch of the card there was a targeted offer of 32 rewards credits that was available.
Now that 32 credit offer is available to everyone (awarded after $2000 spend within 3 months).
I do wonder if the banner is genuine, whether Southwest Chairman and CEO Gary Kelly actually has an Airtran Visa — or a Southwest Visa for that matter. Certainly he doesn’t materially benefit from the awards since he flies free on the airline, but he may well have both purely for corporate pride.
This isn’t my link, just the best available offer I’m aware of. And not a card I’m getting, my goal in miles and points isn’t free domestic coach travel. But I know that it will be of interest and value to some.
