Southwest Companion Pass
1. The Southwest companion pass, which I understand is only possible when I have 110,000 points. I understand that I could get that by opening up the personal and business southwest credit cards when they are both at 50,000 points and combine them, right?
2. If my wife and I both got the personal credit cards, with 50,000 points each, could I combine the points from the two cards and still qualify? Or do the cards have to be under my name?
3. After I get approved from the Companion pass, (with 110,000 points) could I continue that perk indefinitely, as long as a maintain my Southwest points at 110,000+ ?
4. Once I reach the 110,000 points and qualify for the Companion pass, do I have to keep the credit card, or could I keep that status even without the credit card?
Hi Daniel, Lucky doesn’t cover much about Southwest here. You might try Frequent Miler’s site here at Boarding Area. Here’s his latest post on Southwest and you can search his site for other Southwest-related posts:
Hi Daniel, you’re definitely on the right track, so let me help clarify —
1) Yes, though I think the business is at 60k today, which is even better.
2) Nope. All points have to be earned in a single account.
3). Nope. It’s good for the year in which you [I]earn[/I] the 110k points, and the following year. In year three you’d have to [I]earn[/I] 110k points again.
4) You don’t have to keep it, but I would keep it as long as possible for sake of your credit score.
