Southwest just released a new offer where you can earn a companion pass for an entire year just by hitting their Personal Card Sign-up Bonus. My Affiliate link for this Southwest card is here.
I am currently in the process of earning my companion pass for this year and next. You can read about how I did that previously here, while some of those offers may have changed.
Pros of New Southwest Airlines Personal Credit Card Offer
The current offer is pretty cool, because you can earn a year long companion pass for just hitting the sign-up bonus on one personal card. The companion pass is where whenever you fly, someone can fly with you for just the price of taxes and fees. Typically $11.20 domestically for your companion’s round trip ticket.
This is great for people who don’t have a business and don’t want to open business cards.
Cons of New Southwest Airlines Personal Credit Card Offer
The downside is the companion pass is for only one year, where when you time the 125,000 point offer, it can be good for almost two years. The other downside is it is a higher spend $5,000 in 3 months, and you only earn 30,000 points instead of the 125,000 + points to use towards travel.
As someone who has only flown Southwest the past 5 years, I think this is a great offer. I love Southwest for free checked and carry on bags, family boarding, affordable prices.
If you want to sign-up for this card, here is my referral link. Make sure to ensure whichever link you use has the companion pass included. This offer is currently only for personal referrals.
