Southwest Companion Pass
The Southwest Airlines Companion Pass is a benefit that allows you to choose one person to fly with you, free of airline charges every time you purchase or redeem points for a flight. That person just needs to pay taxes and fees, from $5.60 one-way.
To earn the Southwest Companion Pass, you need to fly 100 qualifying one-way flights or earn 125,000 qualifying points in a calendar year. Once earned, the Companion Pass is valid for the following full calendar year, plus the remainder of the year in which you earned it. So it is usually a good idea to earn it as early in the year as possible, since you can take advantage of it for almost two whole years that way.
With this promotion you only get the Southwest Companion Pass for 53 days, between 1/6-2/28/2021. So it really doesn’t matter when you earn it. You just need to register for the promotion, purchase a flight by 9/24, and travel by 11/15.
This is a generous promotion from Southwest and it can save you tons of money if you plan your travel accordingly. You just need to book and take one flight this year and you will have the Southwest Companion Pass for almost two months, in January and February of 2021.
