Southwest Status Match Offer 2018
I love elite status challenges/matches. Over the past five years I have held elite status with a number of airlines, with most of it coming from such promotions. Most recently I was given both JetBlue Mosaic and American AAdvantage elite status. Now, a new Southwest status match offer has surfaced. Let’s take a look.
Southwest Status Match Offer
Submit proof of elite status with another airline and receive A-list status for 90 days. Extend this an additional 12 months by flying 3 roundtrip revenue tickets or 6 one-ways within the 90 day period.
Southwest Status Match – How to Register
To register for the Southwest status match, simply send an email to email@example.com with the following info:
- First name
- Last name
- Rapid Rewards® number
- Screenshot of current elite status with a U.S. based carrier, other than Southwest Airlines
You can find the full details and terms of the offer here.
A-list status comes with the following benefits:
- Fly By® priority check-in and security access lanes (where available)
- Dedicated A-List phone line, reserved checkin
- Free same-day standby
- 25 percent earning bonus on all eligible revenue Southwest® flights.
Southwest Status Match – Analysis
This is a great opportunity to avoid the hassles of the Southwest boarding process by getting in the front of the line. Same day standby is also a nice benefit as well. Keep in mind that to extend your status you need to travel on 3 roundtrip or 6 one-way tickets that are booked AFTER you receive the match. This means any previously booked flights won’t count.
I personally put in for the match since I have some upcoming Southwest flights and I honestly wouldn’t mind getting a nice high A boarding position. Exit row/bulkhead here I come! 🙂 I haven’t decided yet whether or not I’ll try to extend for the 12 months since my Companion Pass expires at the end of the year and I primarily use points to fly on Southwest.
Did you get this Southwest status match? How do you plan on taking advantage of it? Let us know in the comments!
