  • Rapid Rewards bonus points will not count towards A-List, A-List Preferred, or Companion Pass qualifications.

Our Verdict

Pretty easy to spend $25 within 30-days and then do a review to net 1,000 Southwest points. You can also buy a gift card at a qualifying restaurant and use that a later time.

Points earned through regular Rapid Rewards Dining do count toward the Southwest Companion Pass, but these bonus points do not count, as per the terms.

There’s also a United Mileage Plus Dining bonus for new members, up to 5,000 points. You can get both of these bonuses by using separate credit cards on the two programs.
