Southwest Companion Pass Free With 5 Flights! Targeted
- Register for this promotion between July 7, 2016 and October 31, 2016
One of the best parts about the Southwest program is the companion pass. This feature gives members the ability to bring a companion along for any flight, for free, even if it is an award ticket! Normally, the way members earn their companion pass is by earning 110,000 points in a calendar year. So, if you were targeted for this offer, you can get your Companion Pass a lot easier with this promotion.
Make sure to use a card that will earn you bonus points on your airline purchase, like the Premier Rewards Gold Card from American Express which earns you 3X points for flights booked with airlines! You can read all about the additional new benefits of this card here, like the new $100 airline fee credit!
