Southwest Airlines has a nice lineup of credit cards through Chase that offer some unique perks for frequent flyers. While you can read about all of the cards here, this post goes into detail on how the Southwest Performance Business Card Wi-Fi benefit works.
What is the Southwest Rapid Rewards Performance Business Card?
The Southwest Rapid Rewards Performance Business card is one of the newer offerings from Southwest and Chase. This premium business card comes with a $199 annual fee, but also has some pretty great benefits. These benefits include upgraded boardings, Global Entry fee reimbursement, and the Wi-Fi credit that I’ll discuss in more detail below.
How Does the Southwest Performance Business Card Wi-Fi Benefit Work?
Each year, you’ll get up to 365 inflight Wi-Fi credits in the form of a statement credit. All you have to do is charge the Wi-Fi purchase to your Southwest Performance Business card and you’ll receive the credit within a few days. You would have to travel a lot to use 365 credits in a year, but it’s nice to know that Wi-Fi will be free every time you fly.
Each Wi-Fi purchase costs $8 so this benefit could save you up to $2,920 per year.
Can Multiple People Use the Wi-Fi Benefit on a Flight?
If you are flying with someone else, multiple Wi-Fi purchases on the same day will be reimbursed. Similarly, if you want to connect multiple devices, you can use the credit as many times as you’d like on a flight so long as you don’t exceed 365 uses in a year.
If You Have Connecting Flights, Do You Need to Use Another Wi-Fi Credit?
Southwest Wi-Fi purchases are per day rather than per flight. In other words, if you have multiple Southwest flights in a day, you only have to purchase Wi-Fi once and it will work on the other flights too.
The Southwest Rapid Rewards Performance Business card has a lot of cool perks, but the Wi-Fi benefit is my favorite. You can use it up to 365 times per year. At $8 per use, the savings can really add up!
