Lyn writes about Southwest on GotoTravelGal.com and has written an ebook called “The Step-by-Step Guide to Earning Your Southwest Companion Pass” to help you earn what Emily and I believe is the best deal in travel – the Southwest Companion Pass!
I’ve asked her to share some of the out-of-the-ordinary ways you can earn Southwest points for free flights, most of which also count toward earning the Companion Pass, which lets 1 person fly nearly free with you for up to 2 years.
Lyn: I check nearly every day to see what new ways are available to earn Southwest points, as my family of 4 flies almost exclusively on Southwest using their Rapid Rewards loyalty program. So the more points I can secure, the more free travel we can take!
I’ve put together some the crazier ways to earn Southwest points these days from learning your genetic history to paying your electric bill! Who knew?!
