I recently let y’all know about a targeted offer to earn the Southwest Companion Pass (the BEST deal in travel!) with a single purchase on the Chase Southwest card.

And now, via @IadisGr8 on Twitter, the deal is open to all California residents!

Great Chase Southwest Card Offer for California Residents

Link:   Southwest Companion Pass for California Residents

With this offer for California residents on the Chase Southwest cards, you’ll earn the Southwest Companion Pass after your first purchase.  Plus a sign-up bonus of 40,000 or 60,000 Southwest points after meeting minimum spending requirements, depending on which Chase Southwest card you decide to apply for.

The deal expires November 30, 2017.  And you must meet the following requirements:

  • You must have a valid California address
  • Current cardholders of ANY Chase Southwest card are NOT eligible
  • If you’ve earned the sign-up bonus from ANY Chase Southwest card in the past 24 months, you’re also NOT eligible
  • Allow up to 8 weeks after your first purchase for Companion Pass to be activated

Is This a Good Deal?

This is a fantastic deal!  But don’t forget, you MUST be a California resident, and Chase’s stricter approval rules still apply.  So if you’ve opened 5+ cards from any bank (NOT counting Chase business cards and these other business cards) in the past 24 months, it’s unlikely you’ll be approved for any other cards from Chase.

Also, with this deal, your Companion Pass will only be valid through the end of 2018.

If you earn the companion pass by applying for 2 Chase Southwest cards and earning 110,000+ Southwest points, your Companion Pass is valid until December 31 of the year after you earned it.  So if you earned the Companion Pass early in 2018, it would be valid until December 31, 2019 (nearly 2 years!)

Depending on your travel plans, you might want to wait for the sign-up bonuses to increase again on the Chase Southwest cards rather than go for this deal.

Bottom Line

Through November 30, 2017, California residents can earn the Southwest Companion Pass after a single purchase on any of the Chase Southwest cards!

You’ll also earn a sign-up bonus after completing the card’s minimum spending requirements.

This is a great offer.  And certainly makes sense for folks in California have a lot of travel planned in 2018 and want to earn the Companion Pass as quickly and easily as possible!

The link no longer works (I guess it expired on Nov 30th). Do you know if this offer has been extended and if so, could you please provide me an updated link? Thanks in advance.

Thank you for letting us know about this offer. With the companion pass my wife and I can visit friends with relative ease through next year!
