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 have received a new cardmember bonus on a Chase Southwest Airlines card in the past 24 months.
Also of key importance to those who take advantage of this offer, it will provide a companion pass that is valid through December 31, 2018. Reading the terms, I don’t think it matters when you make your first purchase — the “Promotional Companion Pass” will only be valid until then.
To check and see if you are targeted, try logging into your Southwest account and check the “Promotions” tab:
Remember that the Southwest cards have historically been subject to 5/24. That is to say that if you have opened 5 or more credit cards (with any issuer, most business cards excluded), you will likely not be approved.
This is an amazing promotion. In my opinion, the Southwest Companion Pass is the best deal in domestic travel. Getting that pass by signing up and making a single purchase would be fantastic. See our Complete Guide to the Southwest Companion Pass for more info.
