I think this is a poor deal. It only takes 100k points this year to earn a companion pass for the rest of this year and all of 2022. Sign up for 1 business and 1 personal Southwest card and you're golden.
How much flying are you actually going to do before 2/2022? I definitely want to do a companion pass offer, but not one that expires right when I'd want to start using it!
Eh, as someone who has played the Companion Pass game for a while, this is just sort of "meh". Traditionally it's been good for the remainder of the calendar year, plus the entire following year. So if you get it by, say, March of 2021, you'd have it through the end of 2022. The total spent on purchases was about the same ($3k on one, and $2k on the other maybe?).

For this to work, you have to spend $5k within 3 months (not that easy to do, at least for me), and then you have to wait for the next billing cycle before you get your Companion Pass, and then it's only good till February of next year. And you only get 30,000 points whereas previously you'd get 50k (or 40k and 60k) per card.

That being said, they currently raised the threshold for the Companion Pass to 125k miles, so you would have needed to open more than 2 cards (and pay the resulting annual fees). So I guess this is decent if you want a Companion Pass? Wouldn't have minded having this available a month ago when we had to replace our furnace and AC (yay, $8k on a credit card!), but otherwise it doesn't really seem like that big of a deal. $5k is a lot to drop in only 3 months.

Or just sign up for one card and earn 20,000 points quickly. Not that hard to do.

Granted, this only works for existing RR members who got the 25k reduction. If you are new, it'll take 45k points, and this might be the better deal.

So people are aware - this isn't just get the CC and you get the companion pass. There is also a $5,000 in 3 month minimum spend. So you'll actually get a total of 35,000 points, but still, a pretty big min. spend.

Quote from 4merMeatEatr :
So you're advocating opening TWO credit accounts, with TWO minimum spend requirements, and TWO annual fees?

Keeping in mind that business cards for non business owners is not so easy to get any more with simply your SSN and lying about your Ebay sales.

Your scenario is one path to the CP if someone chooses to it, but that does not make this a "poor" deal for many who want a simpler path to the CP.
I'm advocating opening 1 personal account that'll show up in a credit report and 1 business account that will not show up on a report. Chase has loosened up their restrictions on "businesses" for sole props. I was actually just approved for the SW Performance Biz card last week with minimal revenue and years in business on the application.

Biz Card - 70k pts after $5k spend
Personal Card - 30K pts after $2k spend

End up with 107k points & companion pass through 2022. Having CP now through Feb of next year means a lot of folks here won't be able to actually take advantage of it before it expires. The spend and the annual fees isn't for everybody, but I would suggest people really consider what they would get out of this deal before springing for it. I would probably actually wait for a better personal card offer, maybe a 50k one.

Just keep in mind that Southwest also doesn't provide social distancing. I normally fly SWA with companion pass, but I've been on a couple flights recently than have been 100% filled, every seat plus dogs too. Delta does still block middle seats, and just extended through April. One consideration as a pandemic customer on your own individual budget vs comfort level.

What he said. Not a good deal considering that I got 60,000 miles last year (targeted offer) with a $2K spend.

I just received my new business card today. My LLC has previously had a Chase/United business card, but I still had to provide:

Here's what we need to continue reviewing your application

Proof of legal name for business
Proof of physical address for business (e.g. utility bill)

No tax filing paperwork requirements? Good to know. Really awkward running a almost 7 figure business entirely through personal credit cards because my credit is mediocre because I keep maxing out cards with transactions lol.

Ouch. I've never had much of an issue with Chase applying as a sole prop. I was told "we need more time to review your application" but 5 seconds later I received an email saying I was approved.

The weird part is that I never got any response saying the documents were received or that the card was approved. It just showed up about 2 weeks later.

Luckily, I had all the documentation, so it was not a big deal to upload it, but I did not get the sense that Chase has loosened any requirements for their business cards.
