Hi, can anyone answer the following: if I have the Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards® Plus Card and got the 50,000 points last time this promotion ran and want to make the 110,000 point threshold for the cp, if I'd just be able to upgrade my account to the Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards® Premier Card and meet the spend threshold again and get another 50,000 signup bonus?

Thanks.

P.S. I'm new here, so if when replying, if you could please write any acronyms out in parenthesis so that I can learn them. Thanks.

Upgrading won't get you the bonus. You need to apply for a new card.

Yes
You apply for the new card and if denied, you can use your Ink as leverage.

I applied for the business one back in august when this promo ran and got denied and they didnt want to transfer the credit line from ink. is it worth it to try signing up again or should I try calling again about my original application even though it is more than 30 days old and would req. another pull anyway?

I got two cards and my wife got one.

Do they allow a spouse merge which would then get me 150k?

You can't spend another 6k on your cards?

I'd rather spend on others.

Do you have an answer to my question?

Question about companion pass. Dan wrote in his post that you should hold off finishing spending until after dec statement closes, so it'll post in January 2014, so I'll have the pass until 12/2015.

but then how will I get a companion pass at all, because it says all 110,000 points need to be earned in the same calendar year. if it doesn't post until january, then it's not all in one calendar year.

i already have one SW card with 52k. I'd apply for the other one, and spend 8k more, so i'll have 110k. but I still don't see how i can finish spend in end of dec, have it post in january, and get companion pass for 2 years.

please clarify. thank you
