Chase Southwest Visa PC

Has anyone has success with a PC change from a Southwest Visa to another Chase credit card?

Do you not fly SWA and that's why you want to dump the card?

 

Just curious, as this is the next card I would REALLY like to add, but not if it's not all that it is cracked up to be.

Usually with "Partner" Credit Cards they will not allow PC.

I use to have Starbucks Card and that was PC only because it was discontinued as a program.

I have a Speedway Gas Visa now and it cant be PC at all! and I know longer live in a state that has the gas stations...

Actually also curious about this, just incase I would want the CSP down the road if for some reason I start using another airline more.

 

Repoed - I like the SW RR card. I have the premier, 99 AF, primarily got it for the 50k points, but it has been a pretty good travel card. I usually vacation or happen to have weddings at SW destinations, so you get all sorts of bonus points for booking SW partners, flights purchases are double points on top of the points you get for flying the flight. No foreign exchange fee as well if you are abroad.

 

rewards seem adequate if you dont want to do points for flights, gift cards at retailers, the usual.

 

If you fly SW just a few times and utilize hotel and car rental partners you can earn the AF (which they basically offset with the annual cardmember bonus points anyway)

I fly SWA fairly frequently, as they fly direct to my home in Tampa as-well-as Ft. Lauderdale for the DF.

 

Snagged a $5 flight on new years ever (using points)

Re: Chase Southwest Visa PC

I have a CSP and I feel it's redundant to have both. I already took advantage of the 50k bonus points.

Re: Chase Southwest Visa PC

I'm going to try to do this in December, so I hope it is possible. I love the sw card, but we had a baby this year and are flying united more as well as driving more. The csp allows us to get points for both united and sw flights as well as double points for hotels/rental car, etc. at least that will be my pitch. I have to wait until a year since I have the $69 AF version and have to overcome the card act. 

In wallet: Ink Plus 10k, AMEX TE 25k. In bag: CSP 16k, USAA WMC 15k, Hyatt 13k, United MPE 12k, AMEX HHonors 3k. In SD: Cap 1 QS 5k, Discover IT 7k. FICO 08 says my EQ is now 844, was 510 in 2010.
