Happy Tuesday. Here’s your miles, points, travel, and deals news for February 4, 2024:

New Southwest Credit Card Bonuses

There are new welcome bonuses for the three Southwest personal cards: Southwest Rapid Rewards® Plus Credit CardSouthwest Rapid Rewards® Premier Card, and Southwest Rapid Rewards® Priority Credit Card.

For all three cards, you can earn a Southwest Companion Pass® good through 2/28/25 plus 30,000 points after you spend $4,000 on purchases in the first three months from account opening.

The Southwest Companion Pass allows someone to fly with you for free an unlimited amount of times. All they have to do is pay the taxes and fees, which are $5.60 for a one-way domestic flight.

My Southwest Companion Pass has saved my wife and me about $3,000 yearly on Southwest flights.
