Get Southwest Status Matching for Free

Get Southwest Status Matching for Free

If you’re interested, Southwest Airlines is status matching for free. All you have to do is log in to their status-matching portal, register and you’ll be given Southwest A-List Status.

The only qualifications are:

  • you must already have status with another airline’s loyalty program (they’ll ask for a screenshot)
  • you must be a Southwest Rapid Rewards loyalty program member (you don’t have to have any status, you can just sign up here)

You’ll automatically keep A-List status for 90 days with an option to extend it to 12 full months if you make three qualifying roundtrip flights (or six qualifying one-way flights) during the 90-day promotional period.

Southwest Rapid Rewards A-List travelers enjoy:

  • priority boarding
  • free same-day standby service
  • a 25% earning bonus on miles
  • access to a dedicated phone line
  • Southwest’s Fly By® priority check-in feature and security lane access.

 

To learn more or to sign up, head to Southwest’s website.

    Why doesn’t the article mention this part of the requirements?

    You may be eligible for promotional Rapid Rewards® A-List status for 90 days if your company has an existing corporate travel agreement that includes a current promotional corporate status match component.”

    So, as noted above the article is wrong when it states
    “The only qualifications are:
    you must already have status with another airline’s loyalty program (they’ll ask for a screenshot)
    you must be a Southwest Rapid Rewards loyalty program member (you don’t have to have any status, you can just sign up here)”

    And there is no list of qualifying companies. Many of us work for large companies but would not necessarily know if we have such an agreement.

    Doesn’t Southwest always have a status matching program? Or was I missing something?

    Yeah, it’s BS, the article is dead wrong. I tried this last year, but because my company doesn’t have a corporate travel plan with WN they wouldn’t match the status of my other program. You can’t just ‘sign up.’
