I love when programs surprise it’s members with a taste of the elite life. If you have travel booked this year, it’s worth a look to see if you were one of the lucky members targeted. Southwest Airlines is still one of my favorite airlines, thanks to the Southwest Companion Pass and no change/cancelation fees. A final PSA is that now is the best time of the year to pursue the Southwest Companion Pass in order to maximize the length of the Buy-One-Get-One-Free Flights!
