The Bottom Line

This card is all about the points and those points make the $69 annual fee worth it. You'll earn 25,000 points as a sign up bonus when you spend $1,000 on purchases in the first 3 months, 2 points per $1 on Southwest purchases and 1 point per $1 on all other purchases. There's no need to worry about points restrictions or those pesky blackout dates because as long as your account is open points don't expire and there's no blackout dates. 

The Good

The rewards points program will get you the most out of your Southwest flying experience with the opportunity to earn points on both Southwest and everyday purchases, plus there's no blackout dates on points. 

The Not So Good

This card has an annual fee of $69 and a foreign transaction fee of 3% that won't be the best for international travel.
