UPDATE: The BoardingArea.com site was having some issues over the weekend and today, so I am extending the giveaway until tomorrow night, Tuesday January 21 at 11:59pm EST. If you haven’t entered yet, go ahead and enter!
As you are all probably aware, the Southwest Airlines 50,000 point credit card offer after meeting the minimum spend requirement is back – THIS OFFER HAS EXPIRED. By now, you are also probably well aware that the 50,000 points earned counts towards the 110,000 points needed to earn the Southwest Companion Pass. I personally went the credit card route to get the companion pass for 2012 and 2013, but a more non-conventional method for 2014 and 2015 (which I describe here).
Last week I listed some ways to earn the companion pass in addition to the credit card route. While I listed out a bunch of ways, I thought it would be fun to see how my readers have gone about earning the Southwest Companion Pass. This will also help other readers who are thinking about their strategy for getting the companion pass.

Comment on THIS BLOG POST by end of day Sunday, January 19 at 11:59pm EST with the most creative way you earned the Southwest Airlines Companion Pass. I will give away two $100 Southwest Airlines gift cards to a randomly selected winner to use on a future flight.
