I’ve been somewhat surprised by the lack of US airline promotions to stimulate travel this year. Southwest is ramping up the games in a big way!
You can earn a promotional Southwest companion pass if you:
- Register your Southwest Rapid Rewards number via the link above.
- Purchase a one-way or round-trip paid flight after registration and no later than September 24th.
- Enter your Southwest Rapid Rewards number at the time of booking.
- Fly by 11/15.
- Don’t make any changes after booking your new flight.
If you have an existing booking, you can cancel it and then use the travel funds to make a new booking!
With a companion pass you can bring along a friend for free on both paid and award tickets to anywhere Southwest flies. That includes Hawaii and international destinations! You can transfer points from Chase to Southwest and double their value when you bring a friend for free!
You can search for inexpensive flights using the Southwest Low Fare Calendar. If you need to cancel you can always do so for free and retain a credit for future travel.
- A Promotional Companion Pass earned through this offer is valid from January 6 to February 28, 2021.
- A Promotional Companion Pass allows you to designate one person to fly with you, free of airline charges (does not include taxes and fees from $5.60 one-way), on all flights purchased and flown from January 6 to February 28, 2021.
- Once you are qualified for a Promotional Companion Pass you will receive an email from Southwest that includes information on next steps and how to designate and utilize the Promotional Companion Pass. Southwest intends to send this email to all qualifying Members within 10 days after the Promotional travel period ends on November 15, 2020.
- You can designate a Companion after the Promotional Companion Pass has been awarded to your account on January 6, 2021.You may change your designated Companion up to three times during the Promotional Companion Pass period. If you achieve Companion Pass in 2021 by earning 125,000 Companion Pass qualifying points or flying 100 qualifying flights, any changes to the designated Companion during the time you have the Promotional Companion Pass will reduce the number of changes you can make to your designated Companion in the 2021 calendar year. For example, if you earned a Promotional Companion Pass through this offer, changed your designated Companion twice during the validity period for Promotional Companion Pass, and then later in 2021 earned a Companion Pass, you would only be able to change your designated Companion one more time in 2021.
You can book travel for the companion pass holder at any time and then add a free companion at any time, as long as a seat is available for sale.
