Except those points can get you free unlimited companion tickets. My wife did one of the card sign up bonuses, and for 18 months, I was able to fly with her for free.Southwest has basically gotten to the point where they are just a normal airline with "good seat" fees instead of checked bag fees.
Even with an on-time checkin, seems like you never get a low number. Everyone either has status or pays for Early Bird. I just checked in now as early as possible--clicking the link repeatedly until it goes through--and got B59.
Early bird fees are 15-25 each way. The "free" checked bags are nice, but given how often I want to check bags vs how often I want a non-shitty seat (always), I'd rather just fly a normal airline and pay the $30 when needed.
They don't even give you priority status with their credit card. I have the basic United card and that waives checked bag fees on every flight. My GF booked this with her southwest card and they don't give you shit besides extra points.
Their only redeeming quality at this point seems to be that they still let you cancel flights without onerous penalties.
