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.

Southwest Atlanta Promo

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!

Southwest Atlanta Flights

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.

Terms and conditions: **Points don’t expire as long as you have flight or Partner earning activity every 24 months. Benefits apply to points transactions. Only Rapid Rewards Members with a valid Atlanta area address in their Rapid Rewards accounts are eligible for this promotion. New members must enroll in Rapid Rewards at Southwest.com/Atlanta to be eligible for the promotion and have a valid Atlanta area address. Existing Members must have a valid Atlanta area address as of 2/05/ 15 to be eligible. Only these Atlanta area zip codes are eligible. Member must enroll or register for this promotion between February 13, 2015 and May 17, 2015, and registration must be completed prior to commencement of travel. Member must complete three qualifying roundtrip revenue flights originating from and returning to Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport between February 13, 2015 and May 17, 2015. Three qualifying roundtrips must be booked and travel completed between February 13, 2015 and May 17, 2015. A Member who flies three qualifying revenue roundtrip flights booked through Southwest Airlines with travel completed between February 13, 2015 and May 17, 2015 will qualify for Companion Pass status, which entitles a designated traveling Companion to fly with the Member through December 31, 2015 on flights booked through Southwest Airlines.

A qualifying roundtrip for Companion Pass status is a roundtrip revenue flight on Southwest Airlines from Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport to a destination city, including any intermediate stops and/or connections on Southwest Airlines, and back to Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport within the same reservation. Companion Pass travel is subject to the government-imposed September 11th Security Fee of $5.60 per one-way trip and any foreign government taxes/fees if traveling international, all of which must be paid by credit card when the reservation is made. Any additional tax liability, if imposed, is the responsibility of the Companion Pass traveler. Award, Companion Pass, Southwest Vacations® Packages, Southwest Charter flights, and reward travel do not qualify for this promotion. Bookings made prior to February 13, 2015 are ineligible. Changes made to itineraries after purchase may eliminate qualification for promotion. Please allow up to 15 business days after qualifying for Companion Pass status to receive your notification to designate your Companion. If Member earns regular Companion Pass status by flying 100 qualifying one-way flights or earning 110,000 Qualifying Points in the calendar year while qualified for promotional Companion Pass status, the regular Companion Pass status will supersede the promotional Companion Pass status rendering the promotional Companion Pass void, entitling the Member to Companion Pass status through December 31, 2016.

  1. I have my companion pass thru credit card sign up bonuses. Do I have to keep the credit cards open to use the companion pass? Don’t want to pay another annual fees. Thank you for your help.
