If you take a look at Southwest and its companion pass, it’s pretty top notch in regards to every other airline out there. While you could earn it by taking a TON of flights every single year, the best and frankly, easiest way to earn it is through credit cards. Specifically, I’m talking about their sign up bonuses.
While the play is to get the business credit card first, and then go for the personal card, you should get it pretty easily. This current offer is showing up on mobile only, but if you see it, could be very rewarding. The sign up bonus is broken down into a tier system which is as follows:
- 40k points when spending $1,000 within 3 months
- 35k points when spending $5,000 within 6 months
Make sure you look for this offer on mobile! If you just go directly to Southwest, or even Chase, you’ll only see the offer for 40,000 points. The addition of 35,000 points, for a total of 75,000 makes it incredibly easy to earn the Southwest Companion pass. That is, if you already got the business card offer.
I think it’s still early enough in the year for people to hop on and grab the Companion Pass without too much of a loss. This offer just makes it even more attainable.
