When Does the Clock Start for Earning Southwest Companion Pass?

Million Mile Secrets reader, Annie, commented:

I understand I must earn 110,000 Southwest points in one year to earn the Companion Pass.  So if I start earning points in April 2017, do I have until April 2018 or December 2017 to earn the required points?

Great question, Annie.

To get the Companion Pass, you must earn 110,000 Southwest points in a calendar year.  So you have from January to December.

And the Companion Pass is valid through the last day in the following year in which it’s earned.  So if you earn the Companion Pass now, it’s good through December 31, 2018.

That’s why I typically recommend folks earn the Companion Pass as early in the year as possible.  Because you can take advantage of the BEST deal in travel for nearly two full years!
