The Southwest card is great if you use your credit card for most all of your bills and expenses. The trick is to pay it off immediately, as is the same for any credit card. When you make your first purchase, you get a free flight. And then you get another free flight within six months or when you spend your first $500. That alone is worth it if you're asking me. Depending on the time of year, you can get more points for certain things... gas, groceries... the list goes on. The best way to use the card is on southwest flights, where you get two points per dollar spent, plus the frequent flier miles earned, plus any other promotion they're running. If you're looking for quick flights from points, the Southwest card seems to be the best so far.
