Outstanding deal. The companion pass is an excellent addition to the bonus. Has me seriously considering it.
Saw this earlier and got excited until, oh yeah. Chase's 5/24. I'm out.
Keep in mind though that unfortunately it is only through the end of the year and you have 3 months to go before you will qualify for the pass and it's not issued right away.
I am currently on a CP now, we finished the required spend on Jan 1 of last year (so it would carry through two full years), and it did not arrive until I want to say sometime in very late January. There is also an annual fee on all three that is not waived. And fun fact, since there are no assigned seats on Southwest, you and your companion may very well not sit near each other at all. The one who holds the cards is bumped up to A-list and unless you want to pony up the fee to get priority boarding for the companion, they'll end up in another letter group.
The real perk was going to be able to take Southwest to Hawaii, but I'm not even sure that would be worth it now either.
I was very excited to get mine, but now not so much and don't plan on even using it until the spring.
got too many sub to complete at the moment. Also I almost never fly LUV. Maybe another time.
