Congratulations to Linda B. of Bristol, Rhode Island, who earned her Southwest Companion Pass, which means one person can fly FREE with her until the end of 2018, on October 18!

She signed up for two Southwest credit cards about two months apart when all three were offering a 60,000-point bonus upon approval and meeting the minimum spend, to earn the 110,000 points needed to qualify for the Companion Pass.

Congrats to Linda B. who just earned her Southwest Companion Pass. Now her husband will be flying FREE with her!

How She Met the Minimum Spend on the Cards

“I began by getting one card about four months ago … I knew I was going to be making a purchase for a piece of furniture, so I waited until that was bought, and a second offer came through from Southwest for the 60,000 points, again,” says Linda. “Knowing I was going to be purchasing a used car from a dealership, I used the new card to hit the required spend.” That gave her 120,000 Southwest points to spend on FREE flights!

She and her husband have already booked a trip to Washington, D.C. “My husband and I love to travel and this year is the year we will see alot of our beautiful country,” says Linda. “Finding your website was like finding a wonderful treasure! They say the sky is the limit and with Lyn’s help and Southwest Airlines, it certainly is!” Aww… 🙂
