Bottom Line:

A new limited-time promotion is available from Southwest Airlines, but you’ll need to register beforehand and book a round-trip flight or 2 one-way flights by March 27 for travel by May 22.

What Is the Southwest Companion Pass?

The Southwest Companion Pass is an awesome deal that essentially allows you to get a BOGO on flights for up to 2 years. All you have to pay on the second flight is the taxes and fees, which are $5.60 one-way on a domestic flight.

Companion Pass normally requires earning 135,000 qualifying points or flying 100 qualifying one-way flights in a calendar year.

To get a Companion Pass the traditional way, you need to earn 135,000 qualifying Rapid Rewards points or fly 100 one-way flights in a calendar year. Since Southwest credit card welcome bonus offers are considered qualifying points, signing up for a credit card or 2 is the quickest way to earn the Pass.

Once you have a Companion Pass, you can add a companion to any Southwest Airlines ticket as long as there are still available seats, and you’ll just have to pay the cost of the taxes and fees. You’d have the Companion Pass for the remainder of the year, as well as the next full calendar year.

Hot Tip:

You can use the Southwest Companion Pass to travel anywhere Southwest flies, including popular vacation spots like Hawaii and the Caribbean.

Final Thoughts

A new limited-time promotion has rolled around, offering multiple ways to earn a Southwest Companion Pass for a few months this year. If you’ve got any spring travel planned, you’ll want to jump on this offer before it’s too late.
