How to make a payment on a Southwest credit card

There are two primary ways to make a Southwest credit card payment:

  • Make a one-time payment through Chase. A Southwest card payment can be made through the Chase website, Chase mobile app or by calling customer service. To make your payment, you'll select the amount of your payment, the payment date and the source of your payment.
  • Establish an automated payment through Chase. Setting up an automatic Southwest credit card payment ensures that you'll never miss a payment or be charged a late fee. You can choose to pay the minimum due, the statement balance or a fixed amount each month on the due date.

Only one online payment may be scheduled for each day of the billing cycle. If you need to make additional payments for the same day, call customer service to create those payments. Customers may also make payments by mailing a check or money order, using Western Union or by visiting a Chase branch.

If you don't have your card in front of you, call 800-935-9935 to be directed to the appropriate department.

Who is eligible to apply for a Southwest credit card?

Because Southwest cards are issued by Chase, they're subject to Chase's 5/24 rule. If you've opened five or more credit cards in the last 24 months — from any issuer — you won't qualify for a Southwest card.

Finally, this 24-month rule applies to the sign-up bonus as well. If you've received a sign-up bonus from another personal Southwest card in the last 24 months, you won't be eligible for the bonus points. However, this rule does not apply to Southwest business cards.

This compensation may impact how and where products appear on this site (including, for example, the order in which they appear). ValuePenguin does not include all financial institutions or all products offered available in the marketplace.

How We Calculate Rewards: ValuePenguin calculates the value of rewards by estimating the dollar value of any points, miles or bonuses earned using the card less any associated annual fees. These estimates here are ValuePenguin's alone, not those of the card issuer, and have not been reviewed, approved or otherwise endorsed by the credit card issuer.

Example of how we calculate the rewards rates: When redeemed for travel through Ultimate Rewards, Chase Sapphire Preferred points are worth $0.0125 each. The card awards 2 points on travel and dining and 1 point on everything else. Therefore, we say the card has a 2.5% rewards rate on dining and travel (2 x $0.0125) and a 1.25% rewards rate on everything else (1 x $0.0125).
