I signed up for the SWA card a couple years ago for the bonus <s>miles</s> points. I have liked that it is a quick way to get tickets. It is also very easy to make changes to tickets as the points you save by changing a flight or the price going down just go back into your account. However, I am seeing that Chase Sapphire Preferred card transfers points 1:1 to many carriers, including SWA. I am thinking I have no more use for the straight SWA card and it would be better for me to move to the Sapphire Preferred since it gives the same benefit plus some. Basically the same annual fee. Both also 0% international transaction fees too, but I don't care about that because my Hyatt card covers that. (Background might be helpful to determine which is best... I have been using the SWA card for almost every bill that will allow CC payments and almost everything else throughout the month, then pay it off every month. So, interest fees don't matter to me if they are different between the cards. I am currently accumulating 3-5k in points each month. Also, I only fly SWA less than 1/3 of the time, flying non-rev most of the time.) Any input or experience is welcome!
