开年不利!酒店转点不再计入西南航空同行票里程【SW决定酒店转点有效延长到3月31日】

真是“良心”航司啊!又是著名博主点哥The Points Guy的消息,西南航空决定把酒店转点有效期延长到3月31日!

原文:http://thepointsguy.com/2017/01/southwest-companion-pass-transfer-eligibility-march-2017/

As we began the New Year on January 1, we took the opportunity to close a loophole in our Rapid Rewards Companion Pass terms and conditions related to transferred points from our Partners. This was an effort intended to clarify qualification requirements for Companion Pass, one of the best benefits in travel, as well as to protect the integrity and value of the Rapid Rewards program.

 

In doing so, we updated our terms and conditions which now clearly state that points transferred from hotel and car loyalty programs, and e-Rewards, e-Miles, Valued Opinions and Diners Club will no longer count toward qualification for a Companion Pass. Members will continue to earn toward Companion Pass benefits through paid flights flown on Southwest, Points earned through spend with Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards credit cards, and base points earned through transactions with Rapid Rewards partners.

 

Many of you have reached out to us since then, and we greatly appreciate your honest and candid feedback. Because we are a Company that values our Customers and believes in doing the right thing, we are offering a limited window for Customers to earn toward Companion Pass by transferring their loyalty points from these Partners.

 

To that end, points converted from the above mentioned programs will count towards a Companion Pass until March 31, 2017. This is a hard deadline and we will not be able to make any exceptions beyond March 31. If you have points with these Partners that you wanted to transfer, please do not wait. Make the transfer before the deadline.

 

We appreciate all of our Customers and look forward to seeing you onboard very soon!

有意愿拿下西南航空基友票的盆友赶紧下手吧!


17年一开头就不是好新闻啊!

根据The Points Guy消息:酒店积分转入西南航空的里程将不再计入Companion Pass的有效里程!

We’re working to protect the integrity and value of Southwest’s industry-unique Rapid Rewards® Companion Pass by closing a loophole that previously allowed Members to transfer mileage and points from other partner loyalty programs toward qualification for a Companion Pass. As we closed this loophole, we also updated our terms and conditions which now clarifies that points converted from hotel and car loyalty programs, and e-Rewards, e-Miles, Valued Opinions and Diners Club will no longer count toward qualification for a Companion Pass. Members will continue to earn Companion Pass benefits through paid flights flown on Southwest, points earned through spend with Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards credit cards, and base points earned through transactions with Rapid Rewards partners.

西南航空的基友票差不多算是基友票中最给力的!只要攒够110k有效点数,就可以获得一年多的同行者免费票,不限次数,甚至SW点数兑换的票都可以使用基友票。以前大家主要靠以下三种方法来获得基友票:

  • 乘坐Southwest的飞机
  • 联名信用卡获取里程(开卡奖励也算)
  • 酒店转点(包括万豪大礼包)

Chase UR点数直接转点本来就是不算的。因为SPG->Marriott 1:3转点的关系,相信不少朋友也在囤积万豪/SPG点数准备今年初一举拿下SW的基友票(17年年初拿到的Companion Pass能一直到18年底),但是根据TPG消息显示,从今天起,酒店转的点数就一概不作数了!

失去了酒店转点这一利器,目前最大的捷径看来就是得依靠Chase Southwest联名卡了,两张卡都开也能有100k点数了,但遗憾的是SW的两张卡都在524限制之内…What the hell…
