Hey everyone, I'm trying to figure out how to spend on these cards. One of my statements is set ot close in January (why did they set it up o far away?) and the other in December. My goal is to get the companion pass for next year.


If I start charging on the January statement, will ANY points (including those from spend) post before the statement closes in January? I.e. Can I spend $2k+ on it now and receive the bonus points + spend points when the statement closes in January?

Also, for the card that closes in December, I should start charging on that after the December statement closes?

Thanks!

Be careful, I had a January 14th due date on a new card that I opened last week, and yesterday I got a notice my bill is ready and due for payment on Dec 14th!
So any spending that I did (only $17 since I was worried this might happen) is counted on 2013 not 2014.

They post when your statement closes.

I would assume it's very easy for them to make you an RR number, and it would be done within one or 2 statements

-0.5

-0.5 b/c the first $99 should technically be divided up among all the years that you own the card?

Because you can cancel after the retention bonus hits and get back the second $99.

ahhh sweeet! Been debating back and forth whether to close my 2 cards or not. Thanks. Do you know if the free 2 checked bags is a Southwest thing or only if you have an active card?

Fantastic, so then after getting the 6000 miles, there's really no reason to keep the card open.
