Do Chase Ultimate Rewards transfer in and count towards the Companion Pass?  Any suggestions on ways to get alot of points transferred in to get the Companion Pass?

Hi @major,


Chase Ultimate Rewards Points is a Chase program, and points are earned using Chase Sapphire and Ink credit cards. The Ultimate Rewards program allows those Cardmembers to exchange their points for flights, items, gift cards, etc. Cardmembers can also redeem for airline loyalty currencies – including Rapid Rewards points. Those converted points do not contribute to Companion Pass qualification.

No. Unfortuantely, Southwest just recently stopped allowing any points transfers from partners (credit card, hotels, etc.) to count for Companion Pass qualification.


The only points that are Companion Pass Tier Qualifying are base points from Southwest or partners (not any bonus points), plus all points earned from the Rapid Rewards Visa card from Chase.


Your best bet for earning CP without travel is to get the Rapid Rewards Visa card(s) from Chase, with a sign up bonus (40,000-60,000 depending on offer).
