The promotion is valid on new qualifying revenue flights booked between 8:00 a.m. (Central Standard Time) on Sept. 7, 2021, through 11:59 p.m. (Central Standard Time) on Sept. 9, 2021, for travel during the Promotion Period and flown within the Promotion Period.

A Member’s Rapid Rewards account number must be entered at the time of booking the Member’s qualifying flight to earn a Promotional Companion Pass valid for use between Jan. 6, 2022, through Feb. 28, 2022.  A qualifying one-way flight for this promotion is a one-way revenue flight on Southwest Airlines® from an origin city to a destination city, including any intermediate stops and/or connections on Southwest Airlines. A qualifying round trip flight for this promotion is a round trip revenue flight on Southwest Airlines from an origin city to a destination city and back to the originating airport or carrier-recognized co-terminal. The promotion is valid on new reservations booked within the Promotion Period only. Travel booked or flown prior to registration for this promotion is not eligible for this Promotional Companion Pass offer. Companion Pass, charter flights, reward and group travel, and Southwest Vacations® packages do not qualify as one-way or round trip revenue flights for this promotion. Changes made to any itinerary after purchase of a one-way or round trip revenue flight may eliminate qualification for this promotion. The Promotional Companion Pass is valid from Jan. 6, 2022, through Feb. 28, 2022, and allows the Member to designate one person to fly with them, free of airline charges* (does not include taxes and fees from $5.60 one-way) on flights purchased by the Member from Jan. 6, 2022, through Feb. 28, 2022, booked through Southwest, and completed between Jan. 6, 2022, through Feb. 28, 2022. No points, Tier, or Companion Pass qualifying points will be awarded for flights taken by the Companion when flying on a Promotional Companion Pass or Companion Pass reservation.  Members may change their designated Companion up to three times while they have Promotional Companion Pass. If the Member earns Companion Pass in 2022 by earning 125,000 Companion Pass qualifying points or by flying 100 qualifying flights, any changes to their designated Companion during the time of the Promotional Companion Pass will reduce the number of changes a Member make to their designated Companion in the 2022 calendar year. For example, if a Member earns a Promotional Companion Pass through this promotion, change their designated Companion twice during the validity period for Promotional Companion Pass, and later in 2022 earn Companion Pass, they would only be able to change their designated Companion one more time in 2022. The Companion Pass is not transferable. All Rapid Rewards rules and regulations apply and can be found at Southwest.com/rrterms. Southwest reserves the right to amend, suspend, or change the Rapid Rewards program and/or Rapid Rewards program rules at any time without notice. Rapid Rewards Members do not acquire property rights in accrued points. The number of points needed for a particular Southwest flight is set by Southwest and will vary depending on destination, time, day of travel, demand, fare type, point redemption rate, and other factors, and is subject to change at any time until the booking is confirmed. ©2021 Southwest Airlines Co.

I registered and booked a two way ticket for a flight next week. I haven’t received any confirmation of participation in the program.  Is that normal?

So i made 3 one way trips coming up. Does anyone know A. what a qualifying trip mean with the *.  Also it says if you change your flight you may be disqualified. Does anyone know exactly what that means? like if i want to change my date but still travel the same route or within the time guidlines, how do you know what disqualifies you? 

 

thank you,
