I just received an email saying I would receive a 2017 companion pass if I booked 5 flights to/from California before October 31st, 2016

I've told my friends to check it out, but one didn't see it in their promotion page. Not sure if this is a select few or not.

First real post, so let me know if I am need anything else!

I posted the link in the first post, but the terms and conditions does say it has to be sent to you. Maybe try replacing the bolded parts with your information?

So do you need to travel out of state or can you travel within the state?

The initial email says "Let's fly to places like: Las Vegas, Austin, Dallas, etc...)". After that it says "and over 300 daily flights within California".

Unless I'm reading this incorrectly, it does include in-state flights

The terms and conditions stated you have to purchase and complete 5 qualifying "Revenue" round trip tickets or 10 one way. This is vague.. What's Revenue flight?

I don't think the flight length or price matters.

By revenue flights, I believe they mean you can't use your RR points to book the flights (and actually have to pay for them).
