Maybe you took my advice and got yourself two years of the Southwest Companion Pass.

Or maybe you got (or still plan to get) the Southwest Companion Pass with ONE Credit Card; No Business Card Required.

If you are in a cash crunch, you should avoid travel rewards credit cards until you are caught up. Here are our favorite credit cards for Intro 0% APR offers and for balance transfer offers

Either way, wouldn’t it be nice to grab A-List Status while you are at it?

If your answer is yes, then head over to this page and grab it.

When you submit proof of airline status with another airline, they will give you A-List status for 90 days. Fly a total of 6 one way flights within the 90 days to extend for an additional 12 months.

Unfortunately, the benefits won’t apply to flights already booked nor will those count toward the extension, but you can always cancel and rebook if the price hasn’t gone up.

Either way, if you fly SWA, you may as well be A-List!

Southwest Rapid Rewards Credit Card
Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards Premier Credit Card (Earn the Companion Pass and 30,000 points after spending $4,000 within the first 3 months., $99 annual fee, earns 6,000 rewards points at each anniversary)

Hat Tip to Deals We Like for this deal.

I got "in the game" in 2003 and since then I've collected literally millions and millions of frequent flyer miles and hotel points. I've flown around the world in first class seats that would cost $29,000 using frequent flyer miles and a few bucks in tax. And I've stayed in some of the finest hotels - all for free! A few years ago I realized many of my friends actually thought I was paying for these!! So I started sharing my tips. It's long been a passion, but when I hosted a session on Miles and Points at this year's South by Southwest festival, my love of the game intensified and this blog was born.
