Blog Giveaway 7000 Southwest Points

The Companion Pass Is Now Harder to Earn! Console Yourself by Entering This Contest to Win 7,000 Southwest Points

I’ll show you how to enter!

The Southwest Companion Pass is my favorite deal in travel.  But at the beginning of this year, it became harder to earn.

Previously, transferring points from hotels like Hyatt, Marriott, or Choice was a good way to top-up your Southwest account to earn the 110,000 Southwest points required in a year to qualify for the Companion Pass.  But without warning, Southwest changed the terms for earning the Companion Pass.  Point transfers from hotel and car rental loyalty programs will NO LONGER count toward the Companion Pass.

This is bad news for folks who were planning to earn the Southwest Companion Pass early in 2017 by transferring Starwood or Marriott points to Southwest through a Marriott Air + Hotel package.

Winning this contest for 7,000 Southwest points might soften the blow a little. 🙂  Here’s how to enter!

How to Enter

You can complete as many of the tasks as you want.  You’ll get 1 entry for each item you complete.  The more ways you enter, the more chances you have to win!

You can enter until January 15, 2017, (Sunday) at 9:00 pm Central Time.

Good luck!
