WOW, it's back for a limited time: the Southwest Companion Pass!

The Companion Pass allows you to bring a companion with you for free on all your flights; you must travel together. You just have to pay the taxes, which are $5.60 one way. Essentially, it's a buy one get one free for a whole year (promotional Companion Pass valid through 2/28/25).

It's one of the best travel hacking rewards systems. Personally, I have used it for the past three or four years. Allan has only paid taxes on all of our flights, and we fly Southwest at least seven times a year. This has saved us thousands of dollars. How does it work, you ask?

Right now, Southwest Airlines and a credit card company are offering a credit card sign-up bonus (Sub). If you don’t have a Rapid Rewards account, I would recommend signing up for one first, and it’s free. Just go to the Southwest Airlines website. You will be issued a number immediately. Use that Rapid Rewards number when opening up your credit card.

  1. Click on this link. 

  2. Spend $4000 within the first three months of opening the account - I use this for gas, groceries, dining out, and all my everyday expenses.

  3. Southwest Airlines will credit your account 30,000 points and automatically give you the Companion Pass, which is valid until 2/28/2025.

There are currently three cards to choose from, depending on which one you open. It ranges anywhere from a $69 annual fee to a $149 annual fee. Several perks come with these cards.

Don't wait and miss out, this offer expires on March 11, 2024.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
