Southwest doesn’t just fly within the US, they now have destinations in the Caribbean and Mexico as well.

If you win, the Southwest points won’t count towards the Southwest Companion Pass.  But you get ~91% of the way to the 110,000 Southwest points you need by signing up for 1 personal and 1 business version of the Chase Southwest card.

  1. We just got our Companion Pass a few months ago and went to Playa del Carmen via Cancun and loved it. But please don’t tell anyone because we don’t ever want it to turn into a Cancun. We loved the quaintness and smallness of it all, and the food was terrific. We stayed for free from the points earned from signing up with Chase Ink. We will definitely head back soon.

Points allow us to see one another every couple of months. Thank you for this opportunity to earn more 🙂
