It is usually a good idea to earn the Southwest Companion Pass early in the year since it ca be used the rest of the calendar in which you qualify and the entire next year. So passes earned this year, are good through the end of 2020 and 2021. You can read more about the Companion Pass here.
With this promotion you only get the Southwest Companion Pass for 53 days and the dates are fixed, between 1/6-2/28/2021. So it really doesn’t matter when you earn it. You just need to register, purchase a flight by 9/24, and travel by 11/15.
This is a very generous promotion from Southwest and one that can definitely get some people traveling. You just need to book and take one flight this year and you will have the Southwest Companion Pass for almost two months in early 2021. If you plan your travel correctly and squeeze as many Southwest flights as possible within that time period, it can be a very lucrative promotion.
