The Southwest Airlines Companion Pass is the best flight deal in America this year and possibly ever, but this offer is due to end soon (11 feb to be exact).

The Deal

Chase is currently offering a Southwest Airlines Companion Pass as part of the initial bonus point offer on all three Southwest personal cards. New cardmembers are eligible to receive a companion pass valid through December 31, 2019 and 30,000 points after $4000 in purchases on the card within 3 months of account opening.

What Is A Companion Pass?

You can bring a companion along on your Southwest Airlines travels for free with a Southwest Airlines Companion Pass. This isn’t just for one flight, it’s for as many flights as you want. Whenever you are flying Southwest Airlines on a paid or points redemption ticket, the companion’s travel only costs taxes, generally around $5 one way. As long as there is still a seat for sale on your flight, you can add your companion.

Find out the best Southwest card for your needs here and have a read of our ultimate guide to the Southwest Companion pass to work out how to make this pass best work for you. Southwest Airlines will soon fly you to Hawaii but they can also fly you to the Caribbean as well as across US domestic destinations.

If you want to book by redeeming points, you can transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards from a Chase Sapphire Preferred Card or Ink Business Preferred℠ Credit Card over to Southwest and redeem those points, travel with a companion, and effectively double the value of your points.

If you have taken out fewer than 5 new cards in the last 24 months and do not currently have a Southwest credit card, (and haven’t received a bonus from one in the last 24 months), you should consider this card.

You then need to earn 110,000 points you need to re-earn the companion benefit for the following year. This is pretty easy if you follow our guide on the 20 best ways to earn Southwest Rapid Rewards. Flights and spend on your Southwest credit cards are just two ways to achieve this.
