Readers have emailed and commented asking how to time their minimum spending on the Chase Southwest cards to earn the Southwest Companion Pass.
That’s because when you time it right, your Companion Pass is valid for nearly 2 years instead of one!
The Companion Pass is the best deal in domestic travel! Because your designated companion flies for nearly free with you on all your paid and award flights on Southwest.

The key to earning the required 110,000 points for the Companion Pass are the Southwest credit cards. And for a limited time, the sign-up bonuses on all 4 cards have been increased to 50,000 points.
Depending on how many Southwest points you’ve already earned in 2014, you’ll want to meet the minimum spending requirements on those cards at different times to make the most of this deal.

I like Big Travel with Small Money, but I love FREE travel with NO money even more! I’ll show you how to get in on the deal.
Oh boy! There are a lot of bonus offers right now. If you need a few extra points to top-off your hotel or airline frequent traveler accounts, there are some limited time offers you should know about!
Some of these promotions, like the US Airways 100% bonus, could be a very good deal for folks who would have otherwise paid for a Business Class ticket. In general, I wouldn’t buy points or miles unless you had a very specific need or needed to top-off your account for an award.
Others, like Southwest’s 40% bonus, are only worthwhile if you’re short on points for an award.
You’ll get a bonus or discount when you buy miles or points from:
