Can you have both the Gold Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express and Platinum Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card at the same time?

What’s the Best Way to Transfer Marriott Points to Southwest to Earn the Companion Pass?

Million Mile Secrets reader, Mark, emailed:

A few months ago, I applied for the Chase Southwest personal and small business credit cards to get the Southwest Companion Pass.  I was only approved for the Chase Southwest personal card, so I’ve only earned 55,000 Southwest points this year.

I do not have any Starwood points, but I DO have 80,000 Marriott Rewards points.  Can I transfer 55,000 Marriott Rewards points to my Southwest mileage account to get a total of 110,000 Southwest points and earn a Southwest Companion Pass?

Thanks for reaching out, Mark!

Marriott points do not transfer to Southwest at a ratio of 1:1, so you’ll need more Marriott points to get the additional 55,000 Southwest points for a Companion Pass.  And because it’s later in the year, you’ll have to earn the remaining Southwest points fast!
