Great news! Now when you refer someone to sign up for a Southwest credit card through your referral link, the referree is taken to a page where ALL cards are available for sign-up.
Previously, you could only refer someone to the card you actually held.
How to Get Your Southwest Credit Card Referral Link
You will have to generate a NEW referral link by going here in order to access this new feature, which is shown in the image above.
The new referral pages includes options to sign up for:
- Southwest Personal Priority
- Southwest Personal Premier
- Southwest Personal Plus
- Southwest Premier Business
Referring others to sign up for Southwest cards through your link is a GREAT way to earn lots of Southwest points that DO qualify for the 125,000 points you need to earn the Southwest Companion Pass, which lets one person fly free with you for up to two years.

You can earn 10,000 points for each card referral up to a max 50,000 points across ALL Southwest cards. And 50,000 points is a LOT toward the 125,000 Companion Pass points.
Keep in mind, the referral link does not always have the best available offer. For example, right now, it’s showing a 40,000-point offer for the Southwest personal cards instead of the 60,000-point offer which ENDS June 10, 2019.
The business card offer IS showing its highest offer of 60,000 points, however, so that’s a great one to refer!
Points post to your Rapid Rewards account (noted as coming from your credit card) once the person applies for the card and is approved and usually takes several weeks. Unfortunately, there’s no way to track who has/hasn’t applied so you know what points to expect.
Previously, not everyone was eligible for a referral link for every card, but I’m thinking that has likely changed with this update.
How to share your referral link? Email it to friends and family and share how you use points to fly free. You can also share on social media. Please note: I do not allow comments with referral links on this blog.
