The card doesn't offer any airline specific benefits like free checked bags or priority boarding. The main advantage of the card is 2x miles on Southwest purchases; and with a miles value between 1 -1.5 cents each, the rewards rate seems great.
However, do not forget that high miles rate applies only for Southwest purchases, so if you travel other air carriers it can be more beneficial for you to carry travel rewards cards like Chase Sapphire or Barclaycard Arrival Plus card that offer more than 2x rewards on all travel purchases
