That’s right: Buy and take just one Southwest flight, and you’ll get nearly two months with a free Companion Pass starting early next year.

The Companion Pass is one of the best deals in the world of travel, period. But earning the full Companion Pass requires either a ton of flying – or earning a ton of points.

Read our full guide to earning and using the Southwest Companion Pass!

That’s what makes this promo so great. And depending on how often you’re able to put this two-month pass to use, you could squeeze a ton of value out of this pass. Consider:

  • It’s good on every Southwest flight you book for yourself and a companion from Jan. 6 through Feb. 28, 2021
  • You could book BOGO flights to Hawaii, which is set to reopen Oct. 15!
  • Southwest also flies to Mexico, Central America, and throughout the Caribbean.
  • Southwest will allow you to change your companion up to three times during the promotional period, which means you could get BOGO flights for yourself and up to three buddies from January through February.
  • Want to take it next level? Grab the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card and transfer some of the staggering 80,000-point bonus to Southwest. Once you’ve earned this Companion Pass, you can book two flights for the price of one using Southwest points!
  • Check the full terms and conditions.



  • Southwest is keeping middle seats open through at least Nov. 30, with cleaning before every flight.
  • Southwest does not charge for checked bags or carry-on.
  • You can cancel any Southwest flight and be given a voucher for later use (no fee). If you book with points you can also cancel with no fee and the points are re-deposited.
  • Have elite status with another airline? Match it to Southwest’s A-List status.


How to Search & Book

  • Search and book a cash flight (cannot be booked with points or voucher) directly through Southwest by Friday, Sept. 25
  • Travel by Nov. 15 to earn the limited-time Companion Pass


Bottom Line

Let’s not mess about: This is an insane promotion. The Companion Pass is one of the best deals out there. Earning two months of BOGO flights by taking just one Southwest flight is an amazing opportunity.

If you’ve got travel plans for early 2021, don’t pass this up.
