The Member's Rapid Rewards account number must be entered at the time of booking the Member's qualifying flight to earn a promotional Companion Pass valid for use between Aug. 5, 2024, and Oct. 2, 2024. A qualifying one-way flight for this promotion is a one-way revenue flight on Southwest Airlines from an origin city to a destination city, including any intermediate stops and/or connections on Southwest Airlines.
