Today is a Perfect Day to Start Earning Your Southwest Airlines Companion Pass

Southwest Airlines is alone among airlines in offering a 2-year companion-flies-free unlimited flights option. To earn it, you merely need to earn 110,000 Rapid Rewards points in a single calendar year. What better way to start than on January 1?

Southwest Airlines Plus The best way to get your 110,000 Rapid Rewards points is by getting two Southwest credit cards when each has a bonus of at least 50,000 points. That bonus is currently available if you use a referral link, else the bonus is only 40,000 points.

I do not have a referral link, but you can find several in this Doctor of Credit blog post.

If you earn the Companion Pass any time in 2018, it will be valid for calendar 2018 and 2019.

With the CP, you can pay for your ticket with cash or Rapid Rewards points, and your designated companion pays $5.60 to travel with you. There are no blackout dates or other restrictions…if there is an empty seat when you book, your companion can accompany you.

It’s an amazing deal, and I don’t know how long it will last so it’s best to get your CP now.
