Southwest Will Allow Hotel & Other Transfers To Work For Companion Pass Eligiblity Until March 31st, 2017
- Points converted from hotel and car loyalty programs
- Valued Opinion
- Diners Club
According to The Points Guy, they have decided that these transfers will count towards companion pass status until March 31st, 2017. This is great news (and maybe much needed news for Southwest after they erroneous sent out an e-mail stating some customers had qualified for a companion pass or A-List status). I hate no notice changes and I don’t think they are a good move from a long term business perspective as they shatter any trust customers have in your brand.
I also know some readers have transferred and even purchase points to SPG/Marriott in order to use Mariott’s flight + hotel packages to get the companion pass. I just hope people didn’t transfer to other programs already. You can read more about the companion pass here.
