The Southwest Priority card is the most popular Southwest card. Even though it’s the most expense, it makes the most sense out of the three personal cards. It has a $149 annual fee, but comes with a $75 annual Southwest travel credit as well as a 7,500 anniversary Southwest points. Of course that’s even before the 40,000 point sign up bonus for spending $1,000 in the first three months.
Riding off of that, there is a rumor that Chase is looking at a opening a business version of the Priority card. Chase already has a business version of the Southwest Premier, so it wouldn’t be too much of a stretch to see a business version of the Priority card. Based off of what we know about the Premier vs the Business Premier card, the card would pretty much have the same benefits as the personal card.
Other than helping people earn the Southwest companion pass, there is one really big benefit of holding a business version of a Chase card. This is that other than the initial hard inquiry at the time of application, the card itself will not show up on your credit report. This means that after your approval, the card will not count against you in your 5/24 status.
If they added a second business card, I suppose people could use the sign up bonus to try and get another companion pass. I would imagine there would probably be a rule against having multiple business Southwest cards though. We’ll report back if we hear more about this!
