Good morning, I may be a few days late on this, but I had been following the news on chat of the new Southwest RR Priority Card that offers up to 65,000 bonus points plus a number of other features. We currently have a Chase Reserve which has worked extremely well for us, but am really contemplating opening this card as well.
The bonus is obviously substantial, but the companion pass has caught my eye as well. I know many Liners on here have strategized the timing of the companion pass and I’m wondering if you guys can walk me through it. I’m currently pregnant and due this fall so don’t have any current trips in the near future, but want to fly to WDW in Oct of 2019. Do I open the card now and then hope to hit 100,000 points by January in order to get the companion pass for all of 2019? Is that how it works? (I think the offer expires 8/2 but will look further.)
Thanks! I’m happy to use a referral code from the list as well. Also - what is the ballpark number of tickets that 65,000 would buy?
