roughdraft's review: Callout Comment I had been using Southwest mostly for work for the past couple of years. I just signed up for their rapid rewards last year and have accumulated about 4000 points. At the airport a person stopped me and asked if I was interested in this card, I was in a hurry and politely declined.

I went to check my rewards online and saw there was a pretty good offer going on. Through the Rapid Rewards website you can earn 25,000 bonus points after spending only $1,000 in 3 months. That's over $400 in one way tickets.

There is a $99 annual fee but you earn 6000 points as an annual bonus which is what you need for a one way ticket, usually they run around $125 or more, to where I fly, so that in itself pays for more than the AF.

My credit line is $5000. This is my second Visa Signature. There is no foreign transaction fee and you earn double points when using this card to purchase Southwest airline tickets.

This is a big step up for me, as I started rebuilding in 2010, I could not get a card from Chase no matter how many times I tried. I last applied for their Amazon card in December, 2012 and was declined. Special note, Chase is picky about about the time between past applications, I think it is 3 months, but I have to double check that.

Chase checks Experian in Texas, and my score was 696. I should receive the card in 7-10 days. My utilization is at 34% and I have about 10 inquires.

I have a checking account with them that I share with my wife that I don't use. I logged on today and the card is already on the account.

Super excited, I can't wait to get my new card. Thanks FG for all the reviews, and support. I was able to get here because of you.
