The booking link for Southwest is here and remember to book by tomorrow. I saw some great fares from Austin to LA for $240 round-trip which is pretty awesome. and The sad thing is that they block out a bunch of dates to fly to or from Vegas.

Survey for Airline miles

E-rewards  has been behind a lot of mile-earning survey opportunities.

E-rewards partner with most major airlines such as AA, Southwest, and US Airways. Most of the time, you will need an invitation to join their panels however AA is opening its door with 250 bonus miles for enrolling in E-reward Panel. 250 AA miles are not much however opportunities to earn more free miles are promising.

United Explorer Card vs. Southwest Credit Card

My friend asked which credit card he should apply for between United Mileage Plus Explorer and Southwest Plus Credit Card. My quick answer is depending on your home airport, where you want to fly to and your spending habit. I think both of the cards are great and I personally have both in my wallet. I use United Mileage Card for international flights and Southwest Card for domestic flights since I have their companion pass. While United Card has only one version, Southwest Credit Card has 4 versions (Personal Plus + Personal Premier + Business Plus + Business Premier) and you potentially can get one personal and one business card. Since all of these cards are offered by Chase, the rule is to wait at least 30 days between applications.

Read on for the 1-1 comparisons between the two cards.
