Chase has announced that it will add Southwest Airlines as an Ultimate Rewards transfer partner on January 5, adding some value for those with the Sapphire Preferred and Business Ink Bold® Charge Card cards. If you were wondering, transferring points does not count toward earning the free companion ticket.
This is a good time to mention that although the affiliate links for the Southwest credit card no longer offer 50,000 points for a signup, this link here DOES still get you 50,000 points after your first purchase. $69 annual fee applies. (NOW DEAD)
