2 Free Roundtrip Flights from AirTran Credit Card Offer

11:17 PM

This is an exciting new credit card offer I found out about from Miles Mama.  Even though AirTran doesn't fly out of SLC it can be a real benefit and here's why. . .AirTran is merging with Southwest Airlines so the A+ Rewards AirTran credits can be transferred to Southwest Airlines.  It is important to jump on this offer fast because AirTran offers will soon become a thing of the past.  

How it works:
  1. Sign up for AirTran's A+ Rewards 
  2. Sign up for the Chase AirTran A+ Rewards credit card
  3. Charge $2,000 in the first 3 months
  4. The $69 annual fee will be added to your first months statement
  5. When you get your 32 A+ Rewards credits you can transfer them to Southwest Airlines but first you need to sign up for a Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards account.
  6. My understanding is that 1 AirTran A+ Reward credit is equal to 1,200 to Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards (i.e. 32 AirTran A+ Reward credits is equal to 38,400 Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards.)
  7. More information about converting AirTran A+ Rewards to Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards can be found here.  There are other details like expiration dates and blackout dates.  You can also find more information about transferring points from The Points Guy.

WTC Review:
As you know I am a huge fan of Southwest Airlines because you can use Rapid Rewards on any flight.  We have already received our 50,000 Rapid Rewards points from another Chase promotion so this is another way to get more Rapid Rewards points by applying for another related card.  My wife and I both applied for this card and we were instantly approved!  The downer is that the $69 annual fee is not waived, however it's a small price to pay for two roundtrip airline tickets.
