    Hey all! I signed up for the Southwest Card over 2 years ago when they were running their gift card promotion. I canceled the card over a year ago. I wanted to know when I can resign up for the southwest card. I would really like to get those points and go for the companion pass. I also currently have the Chase Sapphire Preferred and Chase Ink Bold. If I do get the chance to sign up again for the Chase Southwest I will be going for both the business card and personal to get 100,000k points to get me close to that companion pass. If anyone has had a card, then canceled, then re-signed up please let me know your experience. I would really appreciate any advice. Thanks!

    try posting this in a more specific forum. Credit car programs/other or in the Southwest Airline forum.

    I think sufficient time has elapsed since your last CC sign up and subsequent cancellation to get a new one. The shortest time span I ever tried between getting a new one, cancellation and reapplying successfully for the same card was Jan 11, Aug 11 and Feb 12. 18 month wait between successive applications is the conventional wisdom.

    I don't think Chase will give the bonus on the exact same card ever. You might get the card but later you will be told you only get the bonus once.
