Southwest Adds Companion Pass As Valentine’s Day Sign-Up Bonus

Valentine’s Day is all about spending quality time with your loved ones. But what if you wanna’ get away this February and escape the cold, work, or whatever?

No one understands the power of travel – and companionship better than Southwest Airlines. The carrier, renowned for its impressive Companion Pass, is offering up that lofty prize as a sign-up bonus on its personal airline credit cards.

Limited-Time Offer

New Southwest Rapid Rewards Consumer Cardmembers will earn the Companion Pass, valid through February 28, 2024—plus 30,000 Rapid Rewards points that don’t expire (a Rapid Rewards benefit) —after they spend $4,000 on qualifying purchases in the first three months from the account opening.

This offer applies to the following Southwest personal credit cards from Chase:

What Is a Companion Pass?

The Companion Pass is highly coveted and only achievable by making Southwest a regular part of your travel plans. Members must complete at least 100 qualifying one-way trips with Southwest in a calendar year to earn a pass – no mean feat. The only other way to obtain this pass is by accumulating 110,000 points. With the coveted Companion Pass, new Cardmembers can bring a travel companion of their choice on as many flights as they’d like through February 28, 2024 (excludes taxes and fees from $5.60 one-way).
