Southwest Airlines Chase Credit Card Complaint - Still No Rewards Credit
I have a Southwest Airlines Chase Credit Card. The one where if you sign up and use it, you get a free flight through Southwest Airlines.
I saw that there was a promotion from May through July that said if you used your Southwest credit card 25 times per month for May, June, and July, then they would issue you an $100 credit to be used for Southwest Airlines.
I made sure that I used my credit card 25 times during those months, and have verified when calling the number on the back of the card to verify that I was to receive the Southwest credit. I was told that it would take 6-8 weeks for me to receive the credit.
After 9 weeks (October 1st), I decided to give them a call to see what was going on. I was informed that it had only been 8 weeks (even though it had been 9 weeks) and it would arrive in the upcoming week. So I looked in the mail everyday for something, but nothing arrived.
On October 8th I called again to see what happened. They said that they were not sure why I didn't receive anything. They did double verify for me that I was to receive it. They said that they would give me a call within 72 hours to let me know the status of what was going on.
Today, October 15th, I decided to give them a call as I had yet to receive any call from them. I was then informed that there was a backorder for the $100 credit and that it could take several more weeks until I receive the $100 credit. I asked why I didn't receive a phone call, and was informed that they sent something in the mail on October 12th.
The customer service people who I speak to on the phone are very nice and understanding to why I am frustrated. I have a flight coming up in early November that I would like to use part of the $100 credit so that I can sign up for early-bird check in ($10 per flight). Now that I'm being told I might not get it in time to use it for that reason, it's becoming more frustrating to me.
I was told today that if I don't receive anything within a week, to call them again next Friday and ask to speak to a supervisor to see if anything can be done in terms of that early-bird check in for my flights in early November. Hopefully something can be done.
Other than the lack of the $100 credit, the credit card and customer service that they provide is excellent.
