Question about companion pass. Dan wrote in his post that you should hold off finishing spending until after dec statement closes, so it'll post in January 2014, so I'll have the pass until 12/2015.

but then how will I get a companion pass at all, because it says all 110,000 points need to be earned in the same calendar year. if it doesn't post until january, then it's not all in one calendar year.

i already have one SW card with 52k. I'd apply for the other one, and spend 8k more, so i'll have 110k. but I still don't see how i can finish spend in end of dec, have it post in january, and get companion pass for 2 years.

please clarify. thank you

All 110k points need to post to your SW account in the new calendar year. Dan was likely talking about a situation where someone is applying for both cards together, not your situation where you already earned rewards this year.

So is there a work-around? If one applied for the card in 2013 is there any way to have the CP work through 2015?

The posts here are a bit-overwhelming for me...
To confirm, I can apply for both SW cards in two weeks,(I.e. the 28th) Dont do any big spending till the new year (65 days later) finish the spending in Jan, and qualify for the CP - Valid till 2015.
Is this correct?
Thanks!

If I got approved for 2 sw cards and my wife for 1, Can the accounts be merged so that it'll post as 150k in one year?

Dan, can you confirm that this doesn't work? From your post about SW, it seems that you CAN do this...

I'm confused. Is the diff that mendy613 is applying later (as posted-ie oct 28) and so none of his points will post in 2013 and therefore cont his CP through 12/2015?

But what's the point? Why get the cards now and wait to spend until January? Just get them early next year and spend right away and they'll also last till 12/2015.

Ohhhh, valid point. So now it all makes sense. Spending 50K today and then 50K after your December 2013 statement, won't get you 110 for the companion until 2015, will it?
