So here's the deal, does anyone else read it as you cannot even book the companion pass flight until DURING the travel period?

See below (flight PURCHASED from 1/6-2/28):
The Promotional Companion Pass is valid from January 6 to February 28, 2021 and allows you to designate one person to fly with you, free of airline charges* (does not include taxes and fees from $5.60 one-way) on flights purchased by you from January 6 to February 28, 2021, booked through Southwest, and completed between January 6 to February 28, 2021.

The first flight to earn the companion pass must be revenue, but when using the companion pass in Jan/Feb, it seems like you could use RR points?
Yes you can book a companion pass flight with RR.

I already have my companion pass extended until 6/30/2021 and i was able to register. Wonder if that means I would be able to bring TWO people with me? Probably not, but why would it let me register?
Nope.

Looks like that is exactly what it says. You have to book the flight and take the flight during that time period between Jan 6 and Feb 28.

Can you cancel and get full refund if you are unable to take the trip?

I know it can be retained as travel funds. But can they be refunded to credit card or gift card?

You can book the revenue flight anytime. Then once you get your companion pass, you can add it next year. You don't have to book them at the same time.

You could even hold the companions flight using RR if you were worried it'll book up, and then cancel to use the CP. Not likely to happen these days.

When I've had a companion pass in the past, you can book your companion's flight long after yours has been booked. Even if they don't give your account the companion pass until January 6th, you should still be able to add a companion before your flight - there don't even need to be seats available on the flight because booking the companion flight is through an entirely separate interface (I guess they just make that the gate crew's problem?)

Thanks. I hadn't drank all my coffee yet and just assumed companion pass was for one year.
