Targeted Southwest Status Challenge

Southwest is offering an A-List challenge for some flyers and with it, you can earn A-List status through May 31, 2019, just for registering.  And you’ll get your status extended through the end of the year if you meet these two requirements by the same May 31, 2019, date:

  • Fly three round-trips
  • Earn 8,750 tier qualifying points

Just log in to your Southwest account to see if you’re eligible.

Normally, you’ll need to fly 25 qualifying one-way flights or earn 35,000 tier qualifying points in a calendar year to earn A-List status. So if you’re eligible, this is a fantastic way to earn status with far fewer requirements.
