CA residents get free companion pass through end of 2019

I just found out that Southwest recently had a sale and California residents can not only get 40,000 free miles for spending $1000 on a Southwest credit card, but on top of that…

California residents qualify for a free companion pass with very first purchase and that pass will be good for unlimited use through the end of 2019.

It took a lot more work for me to get my companion pass (110,000 miles), but since November, I’ve already used it to fly my wife alongside me for free for 3 pretty expensive flights.  (OK, not free… $11.20 after taxes.)

Technically, the sale is over, but I’ve got several cards with Chase, and they’ve always been very generous when I call in and ask if they’d be willing to extend their recent promotion. (Another reason they’re my favorite credit card company.)

If you sign up by clicking this link I’ll get some free points from Southwest & I appreciate the support.
