Our Take

The Southwest Rapid Rewards® Premier Credit Card seems to be stuck in the middle of the other Southwest credit card products, making it somewhat redundant in my opinion.

It has a slightly higher annual fee than the Southwest Plus card ($99 vs $69) with virtually all of the same perks. The only advantage of the Premier over the Plus is that it has no foreign transaction fees.

But at that point you might as well consider grabbing the Southwest Priority card, which has a $149 annual fee but comes with other perks such as priority boarding and a higher annual cardholder bonus.
