How I paid $100 for 4 round trip airline tickets from Seattle to San Francisco

August 26th, 2012 · No Comments

Every Christmas we travel from Seattle to San Francisco Bay Area to visit my folks. On average I spent over $1,500 for four round-trip tickets.

This year I’m only paying $100 plus tax for four tickets because I signed up for Chase Southwest Airline Rapid Reward credit card. The only requirements for getting the 50,000 bonus points are:

  • $100 annual fees
  • spend $1,000 in the first 3 months of opening my account – I basically used the credit card to pay my grocery bills for 3 months

Their promotion claims that one can get 2 round trip tickets for 50,000 bonus points. But, if your travel is relatively short distance (e.g. our travel from Seattle to San Francisco) and you book early, you can easily get four round-trip tickets for 50,000 points. All you have to pay is the $100 annual fees plus any applicable tax.
