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!

4 Tips to Make Sure You Get Your Southwest Shopping Portal Points

Lyn blogs about Southwest at Go To Travel Gal.  So I’ve asked her to share tips to make sure y’all receive your Southwest points after shopping through the Southwest Rapid Rewards Shopping portal.  

Sometimes these points do not show up in your account, so she’ll show us ways to make sure this doesn’t happen.

Lyn:   Starting online shopping at the Southwest Rapid Rewards Shopping portal is one of the easiest ways to earn Southwest points for free travel.  

If you’re going to be purchasing something anyway, why not earn some points to boot?  Plus, most of these points, unless Southwest says they are “bonus points,” qualify for the Southwest Companion Pass. 

Daraius and Emily know this is the best deal in travel, because with the Companion Pass, a friend or family member flies with you for nearly free for up to 2 years.
