Cheap East/West Coast Fares and Southwest 50K Sign-up Bonus

The Points Guy has a post today about real cheap fares ($137 round-trip) between LAX/SFO and Pittsburgh.  The flights connect through various cities.  If you’re looking for a one-way ticket to places like Minneappolis, Detroit, Cinninati or NYC, you could book a one-way ticket and get off in the connecting city.  Of course, that’s not technically allowed and you cannot check any luggage if you do it.

Also on Slickdeals today, there’s a post about new Southwest offers with a 50,000 mile sign-up bonus after you spend $1,000 on the card within the first 3 months.  These points do count toward getting the free companion ticket for a year.  You need to get 110,000 points in one year to get the free companion ticket.  So if you get both a personal and a business card, you’ll already have 112,000 points (from the sign-up bonuses and your minimum spend).  These are Chase cards so make sure you prioritize which Chase cards you want to apply for – since so many travel credit cards are issued by Chase.
