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)
i don't' get this reference. can someone explain to the noob please?

@Big Dan Fan, I don't think it works like that. The statement has to close. Please, someone CMIIW.
You are correct. He is confusing it with amex.

i already got the 110K and the companion pass email automatically - it was not me who joined my 2 accounts so it must have been SW.

I've been prepaying off the balance (actually went $1k over) in prep for the 2013 posting,
so if my acct./billing cycle was done by the 12th, then it all happened right then...

I opened My 2 cards mid november. Both of them had closing dates of jan 13th. Yesterday i received a statement for one of the cards! I had already completed the spend needed for the bonus to kick in, because the closing date was supposed to be in Jan of 14. I called chase and they said they will put a note on my file , and will get back to me. Does anyone have any advice?

were you intentionally trying to make them both post the bonus points in 2014?

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?
Transferring miles from another program does ccount towards your companion pass total.  I think it's worth it because it's so few miles used and so many potential free trips gained.  I don't know how quickly any transfers post, but if any post within 2 weeks it would work.

yes
mine posted early, too...
but, I was rushing it, bec i realized that since SW#1 already went to 50K,
then I should make SW#2 go to 50K in the same year, so that i'll at least get the CP
for 2014. (and not the additional 2015)

I just realized... the companion pass... you have to "designate" a companion?
That means that you always have to take the same person with you?
Is that correct? I mean, I'd love to take my wife with me on a bunch of trips, but that's not exactly practical at this phase in our life. I was thinking to bring different kids with me on trips. Is that not possible?

I know that is meant to be a way of mocking people, but I actually loved it! Thank you!

I apologize if this was already discussed. i tried reading through this whole thread (VERY looooong) and i attempted to google.
As i posted earlier, i changed my closing date to try and get my 50,000 points early in order to book flights for January. For some reason (the common consensus seems to be that i reached my $2000 too close to closing date) my bonus points didn't post this month. My new closing date will be on 1/10/14, Is there any way to get my 50k bonus to post FASTER?

I just realized I royally messed up... both of my SW cards close in Dec and I did the minimum spend required already.

If I change the due dates to a day in the month that passed already, is there a chance it will extend this period and the points won't post until January?
I only paid 15% by switching to dansdeals
