Southwest to Hawaii: Get your Companion Passes ready

Southwest announced late last night that they are finally starting service to Hawaii in 2018. Companion Pass holders rejoice — two-for-one tickets to Hawaii will be huge for those with the points, and the extra competition could mean better prices for everyone. We don’t know from which airports they will service Hawaii, but we can surmise from the promotion for an easy Companion Pass for California residents that they intend to fly from California.   Get a Companion…

INCREDIBLE: Companion Pass with a single purchase! [Targeted]

Nancy in our Frequent Miler Insiders group posted an absolutely incredible targeted offer she received in her email today: Open a Chase Southwest Airlines credit card and make a single purchase and earn a Southwest Companion Pass. As you can see, this offer is targeted for California residents only. That’s a bummer for the ~294 million of us who don’t live in California, but amazing for the 39 million people who do. Critically important, this offer is not available to those who…

Bring your favorite passenger: Last chance to buy a Southwest Companion Pass

One of the best deals in domestic travel has long been the Southwest Companion Pass. This benefit is hands-down my favorite airline loyalty program benefit because it allows you to bring a companion with you for free any time you fly, whether your ticket was paid for with money or points. For a very limited time, there is a roundabout way to buy the companion pass and have a companion fly with you for free for…

Southwest Airlines sale (check existing bookings to save some money/points)

Southwest Airlines has announced an airfare sale from $39 each way. These sales are always a reminder to check your current reservations as you can sometimes re-book the same flights for less money/fewer points if they have decreased in price. I checked my reservations this morning and made a re-booking that saved me almost 9k RapidRewards points: Remember that you can change bookings made with either cash or Rapid Rewards points. Cash bookings receive a…
