Lyn writes about flying on Southwest on her GotoTravelGal.com blog and offers a free step-by-step guide to show you how to earn the Southwest Companion Pass, which Emily and I believe is the BEST deal in travel and lets one person fly nearly free with you for up to 2 years.
I’ve asked her to give our readers a basic review of how Southwest points work and how to use them for free travel.
Lyn: Southwest is my favorite frequent flyer program for many reasons. Not the least of which is the fact that using their program, my family has flown nearly free for the past year and a half, visiting destinations like New York City; Las Vegas; Marco Island, Florida; San Diego; Orlando; and more!
I’ll get into the nitty-gritty on how to use Southwest points, including their value, reserving flights with points, and adding your Companion.
