Southwest Airlines: Congrats, You Earned Companion Pass- Oops, No You Didn’t!

Southwest Airlines

The last time we flew on Southwest Airlines was at the end of October 2016 for our trip to Portland, Oregon. Lucas and I also took trips to Boise, Idaho and Indianapolis, Indiana over the summer.

These trips were made possible in part thanks to the Southwest Companion Pass. I’ve had the pass two times and Kim has had it once. (My most recent Companion Pass just expired on December 31.)

Yesterday I received a couple of odd e-mails from Southwest Airlines. Continue reading Southwest Airlines: Congrats, You Earned Companion Pass- Oops, No You Didn’t!

A Southwest E-Mail To Get Excited About

Southwest Companion Pass

This year has been a pretty slow one for credit card sign up bonuses so far.

Considering that we’re almost half way through 2015, I find it a bit surprising that I’ve only received four new cards to date. By the way, I also got Kim a couple of cards.

If I keep up this pace for 2015, I most likely won’t even earn 500,000 miles/ points from bonuses.

Here are the amount of miles I’ve earned thanks to credit card sign up bonuses in recent years:

  • 2012 753,150 miles & points
  • 2013 665,000 miles & point
  • 2014 605,000 miles & points

However, yesterday I received an e-mail from Southwest that I’m really excited for.

Over $4,500 In Value, How I Used My Southwest Companion Pass

As 2013 came to an end, it also meant the end to my Companion Pass status with Southwest Airlines.

It’s been a fun ride which we will get to continue since Kim now has the status. The big problem is that Lucas will need his own seat in 2014 making the pass a bit less valuable.

I earned the Companion Pass in late 2012 and Kim, Lucas & I enjoyed visiting lots of places around the U.S. thanks to it’s amazing value.

The Companion Pass allows you to designate one person that gets to fly with you just for the cost of tax ($2.50 per segment). When you book a flight with your points, they are essentially worth double if a companion flies with you. This is basically like earning double the amount of points from Southwest.
