If you want to earn the very valuable Southwest Companion Pass, you can currently do so under an amazing promotion for Atlanta residents for less than $300! This deal doesn’t involve any credit cards, point transfers, re-selling, etc. It simply requires you to fly three eligible round trips from Atlanta between February 13 – May 17, 2015.
Your Companion Pass will just be good for the rest of this year instead of through 2016 as a normal pass earned today would be, but this is still a killer deal! I only spent a few minutes searching for cheap fares out of Atlanta, but quickly came across $45 flights to Dallas. You can do same-day turns for $90.20. Three of those would cost you about $270 and earn the right for a companion to fly for free with you the rest of 2015!
You may be able to find some even better flight deals than the ones I found with some additional searching. You have to register for this promo and any flights booked prior to today don’t count. Changing your address to Atlanta on an existing Rapid Rewards account won’t work as it had to be an Atlanta address as of February 5th. However, Atlanta residents can enroll as first-time Rapid Rewards members here and take advantage of the promo.
