Companion pass swap

TW
New Arrival

I am the primary cardholder on a Southwest Chase rapid rewards credit card.  My spouse is an authorized card holder on it.  Is there a way to swap her to the primary card holder of the card(and me as the companion) so that she would acccrue the points toward a companion pass?  She frequently travels with my daughter for figure skating competitions, so it would be nice to have her as the assighner of the Companion pass.  We could probably open a new card with her as the primary first thing next year, but it would easier to just swap the primary account holder.  Thanks!

This, she should open her own credit card account. Note she will also get her own sign up bonus, assuming one is available when she signs up.

I'd also suggest checking with your bank and maybe Visa to ensure you don't need to remove her first? Let us know here how it goes!

Contact Chase and have her removed from the existing account. Wait a while (some reports say as little as 30 days, if you have time I'd suggest longer) and then have her apply using the correct link to get the then-current best bonus offer. Make sure she's under Chase's 5/24 limit (if you have opened 5 or more new credit cards in the past 24 months from any issuing bank, you will not be approved for a new credit card from Chase).  

 

Hope this helps!

Thanks everyone!  We'll go with the new card for her option.
