People who wish to receive a Southwest Airlines Visa credit card should fill out their applications on Chase's website. As of 2015, there are two main types of Visa cards available: Plus and Premier.
As of 2015, the Southwest Airlines Visa credit cards offer one point per dollar spent on most purchases. Purchases made directly with Southwest Airlines and its hotel and rental car partners earn double points. Additionally, card holders receive 3,000 or 6,000 reward points as a bonus once per year.
Rewards points accumulated through use of the credit card are valid for free travel on Southwest Airlines on any flight, as there are no airline-imposed blackout dates or limits on how many free seats are available. Card members can choose alternate redemption options for their points, including international flights on other airlines, gift cards and other travel-related purchases.
