Thanks - we'll give it a few days, then maybe we'll call. We just made our first purchase and sent in payment for annual fee.... I'll look at the statement and see if it's listed on there too.

If I apply for the card and get the points are the points there until you use them? We are not planning on going on vacation until Oct 2013.

Help!!! I am confused on the whole points thing. My hubby and I are planning on applying for the Visa card to get the points. Now, when you shop for flights, do you look at the fares in points? For example, our one way flight for one is 7850 points. Now if we apply and get the 25,000 points, do we shop the fares by points? For us, that would mean the 3 of us could get a one way down to Orlando and then purchase the return flights with the card itself.....This is confusing because I've never dealt with points at all.

Victoria...Yes, you would shop by points. Check the application, most likely it will take at least one billing cycle for the points to post to your Southwest Rapid Rewards account.

Thank you Maynard! We bit the bullet and applied last night. We were approved and it said it would be up to 2 weeks to get the card. I alread cross referenced our current Rapid Rewards number to the card, so it's all connected (or should be). Thanks again for your input!

airfare watch dog

Have you checked airfarewatchdog.com I love this site. I signed up over a year ago for the route to DW and some others. I get e-mail updates from then when the airlines put out special deals. I'll probably use points to book SW for a trip, but the prices that come up on there for Delta are very different than what I have seen when I search delta and all the websites on my own. Check it out.

I get those emails and for the life of me can't figure out how to get the deals they show. I click on the email and then it goes to a site where it shows things like expedia and other sites...and then my airport no longer shows up even.
