Geez, just when I think I've gotten the Companion Pass timing figured out, I read something else that confuses me. My goal is to qualify for the Companion Pass in early 2020 so that we may enjoy it for the remainder of 2020 and 2021. I will be applying for both a business card and a personal card in December, and begin using it on a limited basis then, with the bulk of the charges done so after the first of the year, since I will lose the points earned in December. Is that correct? Also, on SWA info re: Companion Pass, it states the following does NOT count toward CP: Points earned from program enrollment; Promotion bonus points (with the exception of Rapid Rewards credit cards); Partner bonus points (with the exception of Rapid Rewards credit cards. I guess I'm confused by their terminology. Will the 70,000 enrollment points from the business credit card and the 40,000 points from the personal card count towards CP? Also, I envision staying at a high-end hotel (booked thru SW website) in January to obtain up to 20,000 points (some may even be more). From what I've read, these points should go towards the CP? Please help! Thank you!
