How long will it take to receive my A-List status?

After your purchase, your status upgrade will begin processing within one business day. We'll send you an email confirmation when processing begins.

Your account will be upgraded within 10-20 business days of purchase.

How long will my A-List status be valid for?

Your status is valid for 3 months from the date on which it is processed on your account.

After 3 months, how can I renew my status?

To renew your A-List status, we'd love your business again.

Due to Southwest system limitations, we can’t apply this direct upgrade to the same Rapid Rewards account multiple times, so the renewal must be applied to a new Rapid Rewards account that we'll create for you. You'll simply maintain A-List status on a different Rapid Rewards account number.

Am I guaranteed to receive all the posted benefits on every flight?

That depends! For perks that rely on space being available on the plane, like first class upgrades, you’ll receive the upgrade if complimentary upgrade seats are available to status-holders.

You’ll always receive other perks, like free checked bags and lounge access, as long as you hold status.

Is this a status match challenge?

This upgrade is not a status match, but is processed similar to a status match on Southwest's back-end systems. This means you may extend the duration of your status by meeting Southwest's public status match challenge requirements. For more information on this method to extend your status, please get in touch!

If I've already had a status match on my Southwest Rapid Rewards account, am I eligible to purchase this upgrade?

Because this upgrade is processed similar to a status match on Southwest's back-end systems, if you have already had a status match, we're unable to apply this upgrade to your existing account.

However, we can automatically create a new Southwest Rapid Rewards account for you, which we're able to upgrade. You'll simply receive A-List status on a different Rapid Rewards account number. For more information, please get in touch!

Where does my upgrade come from?

We partner with corporate travel management agencies to process your status upgrade. Your upgrade comes from benefits in agreements sold by airline brands to our partner agencies.

What do I need to do to receive my status?

After submitting your account information, you're done! Your purchase includes a direct upgrade to A-List status on your Southwest Rapid Rewards account.

Completing a minimum number of flight miles or segments, meeting a minimum spend, or meeting any other challenge to receive the upgrade is not required.
