Promotions for Southwest Companion Pass
Southwest Airlines is making it easier for Rapid Rewards members to a Companion Pass. For a limited time, Rapid Rewards members have three new opportunities to accelerate their way to one of the most popular airline perks in the industry.
The Companion Pass allows Rapid Rewards members to designate one person to fly with them, free of airline charges (doesn’t include taxes and fees from $5.60 one-way) every time they pay cash or redeem points for a flight.
To qualify for Companion Pass, Members must fly 100 qualifying one-way flights or earn 135,000 qualifying points in a calendar year. Once a member qualifies, they’ll earn Companion Pass for the following full calendar year, plus the remainder of the year in which they earned it. That means that it’s best to earn it very early in the year.
While the timing is not ideal, here are the three promotions that are currently available for members to earn the Companion Pass.
Double or Triple Companion Pass Qualifying Points
Southwest Rapid Rewards members who register for this promotion, purchase Southwest qualifying flights, and travel through Nov. 30, 2023, can earn double Companion Pass qualifying points on all qualifying flights.
Business travelers booking through one of Southwest’s business channels—swabiz.com (SWABIZ), Global Distribution System (GDS), or Southwest Partner Services (SPS) distribution channels—can earn triple Companion Pass qualifying points per flight during the same promotional period.
Reward Travel Counts
Southwest Airlines is making travel even more rewarding this year by applying reward travel toward a Companion Pass.
Every flight purchased with Rapid Rewards points counts as one Companion Pass qualifying flight when Customers register for this promotion, purchase Southwest qualifying flights, and travel through Nov. 30, 2023.
Double Credit Card Rewards
Rapid Rewards Credit Cardmembers who register for this promotion can earn double Companion Pass qualifying points per $1 spent with their Rapid Rewards Credit Cards from Chase, now through Nov. 30, 2023.
