The 50000 points Southwest cards bonus offers were supposed to end yesterday. If you look on the Southwest website, the links redirect you to the 25,000 point bonus. However, I found “Airtran” referral links that still point to the 50,000 points bonus.

It looks like Chase has also extended the refer-a-friend bonus to the Southwest cards (HT: Travelwithgrant). If you have a Southwest card, you can refer a friend and receive 5000 Rapid Rewards points for a successful referral.
It looks like you can only refer the card that you have. Just enter your info on that page to see if you qualify. It seems like a targeted offer. If you don’t qualify, you will get the following message:
This Promotion is currently being tested and only eligible customers will be able to get through the authentication screen to refer a friend. Make sure you entered your information exactly as it appears on your account. If you feel you’ve received this message in error please call the number on the back of your card for assistance.
If you do get the offer, you can refer up to 10 people for a total of 50,000 Rapid Rewards points.
The 50000 point bonus is worth a little over $700 when used for “Wanna getaway” fares. If you have the companion pass, you can double that value.
