Chase Southwest Personal Cards Losing Increased Sign-Up Bonus Tomorrow
Link: Southwest Companion Pass
By earning 60,000 bonus points from 1 personal and 1 small business Southwest card, you’ll have more than the 110,000 Southwest points required in a calendar year to earn the Southwest Companion Pass!
I consider the Southwest Companion Pass to be the best deal in travel. Because it allows you to bring a travel buddy with you for practically free on any paid or award Southwest ticket for up to 2 years!
That’s because the Companion Pass is good through the calendar year you earn the points, as well as the following calendar year. So if you apply for the cards now, and wait to complete your minimum spending after your December 2017 statement closes, your points will post in January 2018. And your Companion Pass will be good until December 31, 2019!
By earning 2 of these increased sign-up bonuses (from 1 personal and 1 business card), you’ll earn more than enough Southwest points to qualify for the Southwest Companion Pass. Which Emily and I consider the best deal in travel!
