Two weeks ago I wrote about an incredible offer from Southwest which could easily get you Companion Pass. However it was a targeted offer sent to only a few people by email in California. Now the offer is public, but it is still only available in that one lucky state out west.
California Southwest Companion Pass Offer
Open a new Rapid Rewards Credit Card account, make a purchase, and get Companion Pass.
Offer ends 11/30/17! – Act Now!
Plus, earn 40,000 points after you spend $1,000 in the first three months of opening your account. This product is available to you if you do not have this card and have not received a new Cardmember bonus for this card in the past 24 months.
Please note, this offer is for California Residents only. If you apply through this offer and are not a California resident you will not receive Companion Pass. See Promo Page.
If you live in California, then this is a tremendous offer that makes it super easy to get a Companion Pass. You’d normally need to earn 110,000 Rapid Rewards points to qualify, but with this offer you just need to pay the annual fee of $69 and make one purchase.
The signup bonus is not the best around, but it’s worth losing out on 10K or 20K Rapid Rewards points for the Companion Pass which cut the price in half for any Southwest flight when two people fly together.
