PM a link for 32 credit?

Could someone PM me the link for the 32 credit sign on bonus?

I would appreciate it.

Thanks for your time

I noticed that credits earned through Chase have a two year expiry. In order to maximize the life of the credits, it would make sense for me to keep the credits in AirTran for two years and then move them over to SW and create a standard award with a life of one year right?

Also if I close the card, does the expiry change?

1. Correct
2. I don't see how they could implement that.

The 32-credit offer should end August 6. That's what Ding says is the end of the 50k point Southwest card offer.

Can you use the business upgrade vouchers for other people if you aren't present. For instance if as a gift I book 2 people a trip and use the upgrades for them.

Thanks in advance for your help!
Zero points. You get 2 RT Standard Awards, more or less equivalent to AirTran awards. Keep the AirTran credits because they have 2 years of life. After the transfer you'll only have one year.

Unlike the WN bonus offer for 50000 points, this bonus offer for 2 roundtrips (32 bonus credits) + 2 BC upgrades is still valid.

https://creditcards.chase.com/a1/airtran/32specialoffer

Application: https://applynow.chase.com/FlexAppWe...DF01&SPID=F2SK

This offer is also being promoted in airports.

business class upgrades

If I get the card, once I make a purchase, can I use the business class upgrades for award travel I've already booked? And assuming I can, what is the procedure? Can I just call AT and change over the award tickets to business class? thanks

Has anyone gotten this card recently, i.e. is it still available?

One of the links above is still live.

The lastest offers I've see are for Southwest Cards.

Note that availability is really poor for standard awards. Also one cannot convert them to freedom awards. Regretting taking this.

Sometimes southwest.com offers more/different capacity-constrained awards than airtran.com. You can convert 16 a+ credits to two one-ways on southwest, and book from there.

The application link in the wiki (which I put there after successfully using in Feb and Mar) no longer works. If anyone knows a live link still, please share. Thanks.

I expected it to disappear soon; just trying to get it for family members while can.

I thought it was no longer possible to get an AirTran credit card. Because if it's possible I want to get one too!
