Southwest is offering 50,000 points again! Question?

If I get this card right now, will I be able to purchase our flights using the points for a December 2013 trip and cancel the credit card before our trip comes up? I would think that since I used the points already, this would be okay but just wanted to check if anyone did this yet.

Yes....but you might as well keep the card for a full year as your paying the 12 month annual fee up front.

It's paid up front? I must've missed that. Last time we did the deal, we didn't pay anything till the 12 month mark which is when I cancelled.

Not sure about this time, but the last couple times offered it was either $79 or $99. We use our Disney Visa so decided not to get this one right now. If I had a specific trip planned I would probably go for it.

There are some restrictions. You would need to look closely at the terms and conditions.
