Southwest Fare Sale Starting at Just $39 One-Way

Book them before they’re gone!

Via Miles to Memories, you can book Southwest flights for just $39 one-way (that’s 1,657 Southwest points!).  But there are other more expensive routes that are still a great deal.  I found a one-way flight from Atlanta to Detroit for just $94 (or 5,341 Southwest points).

But you’ll need to book by March 2, 2017, for travel through June 14, 2017.  And certain routes have different different eligible travel dates.

How Long Will the 60,000 Point Southwest Premier Small Business Offer Last?

Million Mile Secrets reader, Victor, tweeted:

How long will the Southwest Rapid Rewards Premier Business Credit Card 60,000 point offer last?

Great question!

You can earn 60,000 Southwest points with the Chase Southwest Premier small business card when you spend $3,000 on purchases within the first 3 months of opening your account.

That’s a 10,000-point increase from the previous offer on this card!

Chase has NOT indicated if this is a limited-time offer.  But they can change their mind at any point.

Why You Should Take a Screenshot When You Apply for New Cards

Update:   One or more card offers in this post are no longer available.  Check our Hot Deals for the latest offers. 

Million Mile Secrets reader, Jack, commented:

My wife applied for the Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select World Elite Mastercard.  She was approved and completed the minimum spending requirements to earn the sign-up bonus.  But after inquiring with Citi, the bank claims there is no record of her applying for an offer with a sign-up bonus.

They want proof of the offer and we do not have any.  Any suggestions?

Jack’s wife’s situation is one of the most frustrating situations readers ask about.

Folks see an offer to earn a terrific sign-up bonus, like 50,000 airline miles or free hotel nights.  Then, they apply to find out they used an outdated link.  Or the bank can’t find records of the offer.

Everyone makes mistakes, including the banks.  That’s why it’s important to keep records and take screenshots of credit card offers during the application process.

Why You Should Take A Screenshot When You Apply For New Cards

A Quick Screenshot Can Be the Difference Between Earning a Sign-Up Bonus or Not!

I’ll show you simple ways you can screenshot an offer page.

Personal Experience Earning Southwest Companion Pass With Hotel Points

Million Mile Secrets team member Harlan recently earned a Southwest Companion Pass.  I’ll let him tell you about his experience!

Harlan:  Thank you Daraius!  I’m happy to report it all went very smoothly!

If you want to earn the Southwest Companion Pass with hotel points, you only have until March 31, 2017, before this method is gone forever.

But, you’ll be able to fly Southwest with a companion for only the cost of taxes & fees through December 31, 2018 – almost 2 full years!

I chose to earn the Southwest Companion Pass with points transferred from Marriott.

Can You Earn the Southwest Companion Pass With Just 11 Paid Hotel Nights?

Million Mile Secrets reader, Clint, tweeted:

It would be great to earn the Southwest Companion Pass with only 11 paid nights booked through SouthwestHotels.com.  

I agree, Clint!

Recently, Lyn from Go To Travel Gal wrote about a way to earn up to 10,000 Southwest points per night for hotel stays.  And these points DO count toward earning the Companion Pass.

As Clint points out, earning 10,000 Southwest points per night for an 11-night stay would get you the 110,000 Southwest points required to earn the Companion Pass!

I found a few examples that could make it possible to earn the Companion Pass with an 11-night hotel stay.  But, it’s very expensive!

Southwest Companion Pass Points With Paid Hotel Stays

An 11-Night Stay at the Park Hyatt Dubai Could Earn You Enough Southwest Points to Get the Companion Pass. But It Will Cost More Than $5,000!

Instead, I recommend combining the points you earn from SouthwestHotels.com with other points to earn the Companion Pass.

Or you can earn points from the hotel site throughout the year, instead of all in one shot!  I’ll explain!
