    Ok, I should have taken the 50,000 mile offer three months ago ( https://creditcards.chase.com/a1/southwest/offer ). But now I want to travel in three and half more months, and those miles would sure be handy for a family of four.

    Are there any options for gaining Southwest miles bonus more quickly than waiting three billing cycles?

    I do see a signup bonus at Southwest checkout:
    * $100 statement credit, 10,000 miles for $500 spend in 3 months, plus (they don't highlight) $99 annual fee.
    Thus it's really a $1 credit plus 10,000 miles. The 50,000 mile bonus sounds better of course.

    Chase posts miles quickly so if you spend the $2000 in the first billing cycle you will have the miles soon after that.

    I got the card in October for the 50,000 points and spent the $3,000 in 3 billing cycles in about 6 weeks. Points posted at beginning of December.
