Reported earlier by our friends at Frequent Miler, Southwest is offering an A-List status match for a 90-day promotional period. Southwest will A-List status for a full year upon completion of three roundtrip (or six one-way) flights within 90 days of enrollment confirmation.
So far it appears any tier of elite status on a US-based airline qualifies for the promotion. That’s an easy fast-track to a status level that typically requires 25 one-way flights or 35,000 tier qualifying points in a year.
No free upgrades or extra honey-roasted peanuts, but A-List status does have a few valuable perks, including priority check-in, security and boarding; free same-day changes; and a 25% earning bonus for Rapid Rewards points.
Simple Terms, Easy Enrollment
To qualify for promotional A-List status, you must:
✅ Have elite status on a domestic airline
✅ Be enrolled (or join) Rapid Rewards
✅ Enroll here and have the following available:
▫ First name
▫ Last name
▫ Rapid Rewards number
▫ Screenshot of current elite status with a U.S. carrier
▫ Promotional status confirmation typically takes place within 12 business days
▫ If you qualify for the promotional status, you will not receive an actual A-List card
▫ Current A-List members whose status is expiring soon are not eligible
❗ Previously booked flights do not count toward three-roundtrip requalification
❗ No published end date for the promotion – act fast!
