Do the "Point Plus" hotel properties' points count towards the Companion Pass accumulation? I'm assuming regular hotel Rapid Rewards points do, but I'm not sure about the Point Plus.

No... "Purchased points, transferred points transferred between members, points converted from hotel and car loyalty programs, and e-Rewards, e-Miles, Valued Opinions and Diners Club, points earned from program enrollment, tier bonus points, flight bonus points, and partner bonus points (with the exception of the Rapid Rewards Credit Cards from Chase) do not qualify as Companion Pass qualifying point."

As a general rule:
Base points from partner activity do count towards CP. Bonus points do not.
The exception is the Chase Rapid Rewards Visa card. All points -- base and bonus -- count towards CP.

Wondering if a Southwest employee can weigh in on this. I've previously heard that these "bonus points" do count towards Companion Pass.

My post above is a quote from the Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards Program Terms and Conditions found on the Southwest website. They do not count anymore towards Companion pass.

I'm not sure we're talking about the same thing.
"Bonus" Rapid Rewards points from anything except the credit card do not count.
Can you clarify what you mean by, "Bonus Plus"?

I marked @chgoflyer's response as an accepted solution because his answer is correct -
"Base points from partner activity do count towards CP. Bonus points do not.
The exception is the Chase Rapid Rewards Visa card. All points -- base and bonus -- count towards CP."

Hi. Some hotels you can earn anywhere from 1000 to 30000 point for your stay. Does this count toward the companion pass. See photo. Thanks

It would be great if @Lindsey would clarify the difference between bonus points and the points reference in the booking as noted in the picture with this post! It looks to me like I got points towards my next CP from a stay in Vegas earlier this year. I just booked a hotel in Cabo specifically because of the RR points advertised with the understanding that the points would in fact apply to my next CP. If they don't I'll cancel and rebook a less expensive place. Thanks!
