Your Companion Flies Free With You for the Rest of the Year on Southwest Airlines — If…

This content has been archived. It may no longer be relevant

outhwest Airlines has an interesting promotion where your companion flies free as a passenger with you for the remainder of 2015 — but there are a few things about which you should know.

You must:

  1. Register here for the Heartlanta promotion between now and Sunday, May 17, 2015 prior to commencement of travel
  2. Book and complete three qualifying revenue round-trip flights — each originating from and returning to Atlanta within the same reservation — between now and Sunday, May 17, 2015; and the flights may include intermediate stops
  3. Earn Companion Pass status through Thursday, December 31, 2015
  4. Be a member of the Rapid Rewards frequent flier loyalty program
  5. Have a valid address in the Atlanta metropolitan area — click here to see which eligible ZIP codes are included — in your Rapid Rewards account to be eligible for this promotion as of February 5, 2015


The companion must use a credit card to pay a minimum of $5.60 in taxes and fees each way on each flight.

If you earn regular Companion Pass status by flying 100 qualifying one-way flights or earning 110,000 Qualifying Points during the calendar year while qualified for promotional Companion Pass status, the regular Companion Pass status will supersede the promotional Companion Pass status rendering the promotional Companion Pass void, entitling you to Companion Pass status through December 31, 2016.

Award, Companion Pass, Southwest Vacations packages, Southwest Charter flights, and reward travel do not qualify for this promotion. Bookings which were initiated prior to Friday, February 13, 2015 are ineligible. Changes which are implemented to itineraries after purchase may eliminate qualification for this promotion. Please allow up to 15 business days after qualifying for Companion Pass status to receive your notification to designate your companion.

Other terms and conditions — as well as Rapid Rewards rules and regulations — apply.

I most likely will not sign up for this promotion simply because I will not be able to qualify for it — but I first found out about it from this article written by Adam of The Winglet; and I hope that it benefits you. Thank you, Adam.
