You can fly FREE on Southwest Airlines, want to know how?
My daughter flies free with me on the Southwest Companion Pass. That means that anytime I book a flight on Southwest she pays nothing but a minor tax fee for the rest of this year and ALL of next year. The easiest way to get the 110,000 Southwest points needed to earn the Companion Pass is through Southwest credit card signup bonuses.
Now it’s easier than ever with a very generous 60,000 point bonus on the Southwest Rapid Rewards Credit Card Plus with Chase Bank. You need to spend $2000 in three months – which is easy if you focus on using that one card for all your expenditures to hit the minimum spend. I have heard of several people who have 2 of the same card or get one for personal use and one for business. If you hit the minimum spend on both cards you will earn 120,000 Southwest Rapid Reward Points, more than enough for the Southwest Companion Pass.
Then you pick one person to fly free with you for up to two years. The best strategy is to earn the pass as early in the year as possible so you get two full years of travel. The timing is important – don’t let your bonus hit late in the year. Did you know that Southwest flies to locations like Costa Rica, Mexico and soon Hawaii? Also, there are no restrictions on your companion pass – fly whenever you like! So what are you waiting for? Get a free companion like ME!
