Those who follow my blog regularly know I love a good status match! Southwest currently has a 90-day status challenge/match offer to their top-tier A-List status just by sending an email and providing proof of your current elite status with another airline.
There’s an opportunity to extend the status for another 12 months by booking and flying three round trip flights (or six one-ways) within 90 days of enrollment.
Some of my favorite benefits of A-List status is priority boarding and free same-day standby.
All you have to do is send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and provide your:
- First name
- Last name
- Rapid Rewards® number
- Screenshot of current elite status with a U.S. based carrier, other than Southwest Airlines
I sent my email including a screenshot of my JetBlue Mosaic status a few days ago, and received an email back yesterday confirming that I was matched:
Congratulations! You entered our exclusive Southwest status match promotion, and have now officially qualified to earn promotional Rapid Rewards® A-List for 90 days from today.
Extend your new A-List status for 12 months by booking and flying three round trip flights (or six one-ways) within 90 days of today. Please note that any previously booked reservations will not qualify towards the promotion.
We look forward to welcoming you onboard soon!
Even though I don’t have any immediate Southwest plans in the pipeline, it never hurts to status match when the opportunity arises.
Southwest often has great fare deals and fantastic redemption opportunities that are fully refundable up until 10 minutes before departure. It’s hard to beat that!
Who else has successfully status matched to A-List with this offer?
