only points earned from purchases count towards the 110,000 for CP?
Also bonus points you get from opening a new card and reaching the minimum spending threshold.

Thanx for response!
2 things:
1. my statement did close on 12/10, but the only points i got were for actual purchases.
2. so even though you get "points" for BT, (quote from Chase.com "1 Rapid Rewards Point for every $1 of eligible balance transfers made within the first 90 days your account is open (up to $10,000)" ) only points earned from purchases count towards the 110,000 for CP?
If you meet the spending threshold too close to the statement closing date, the bonus will post the following month.

I moved my statement to dec 25 so I could give myself enough time to spend for CP. Do you think it will credit to southwest in time?

So basically I switched my closing day to the 10th of the month to try and get my points faster, as now won't get them till after January 10.
Is there any way to get them sooner?

Ugh. I gave up on pursuing my 110k companion pass because I thought my (second) 50k sign up bonus would never post on time.

Well, guess what? It just did. I have now eared 104,600 miles this year.

Is there any way in heck to get 5,400 miles to post before Jan 1?

Prepay  my dentist for my implant, post and crown.  ;D

Or prepay any of your upcoming large bills.  buy VR like mad.  load up on gift cards.
Anything!

But do it QUICKLY!  At least a week(?) before the statement closes.  And adjust your statement closing date to as late in dec as possible to give yourself time. But make sure it closes in Dec.

Good luck!

I made a purchase on 12/11 to get the CP, but Chase just told me it didn't post til 12/15 :( My statement closed on 12/12.

(In retrosopect I should have asked for them to delay the statement close date)

Any other way to get the 4500 points I need for the CP?
What about closing the card (I have another SW card linked to Rapid Rewards that will remain open)?

What about transferring miles from another program - will that work, and is it worth it?

If you see something that is 50% off but don't need it, walk away and save yourself 100%

yes, you can do it -
I just got my 110,000 posted B"H and it seems that they automatically merged my 2 accts. for the comp. pass.
2 people to CVS and Office Depot in the next 2 days -- plenty of time till Dec 31.
(also, I think it helped that i prepaid the SW bill so no waiting until bill was paid to post points)

@Big Dan Fan, I don't think it works like that. The statement has to close. Please, someone CMIIW.
