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?
Most important is that they all post in the same calendar year!
You can try calling? and moving the bill date into Jan?  I would do it with a person, not just moving the date on your account. (chat , sm, call)

What excuse / reason could I give that I need the statement to close in January?
Also which number would I call?
I only paid 15% by switching to dansdeals

Honesty?  YOU want to earn the companion pass and you need to finish your 110 spending and you want the pass to start in 2014 not 2013?  Phone reps can be nice and with a reasonable reason they may work with you. 

call the number on the back of the card.

I changed the dates to the 12th a few hours ago, I called up and told the rep that I was hoping to get the points in order to get the companion pass, and by mistake finished the spending early etc.
He said he sees my statements are supposed to close on Jan 15th, 2014 so the points won't deposit until then.

Thx! I really hope what he said is accurate! Guess I'll find out in a few days as the 1st card was scheduled to close today.

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.

well I tried to do the points transfer option - using Hyatt > RR. I transferred 10,000 from UR to Hyatt. Hyatt is supposed to let one transfer in increments of 1250 which should allow the full 10,000 to be transferred - however they only let me transfer 8750 (??)

So now I need to see if the Hyatt transfers before year end, and what the heck will I do with a measly 1250 stuck in my Hyatt account?

I also SM'd Chase to see if they'd bring my statement back into December, but I feel that will be highly unlikely...

Good times :)

As i previously posted, even though i reached my $2000 before my last statement closed i didn't receive the bonus points. Does anyone have experience in getting the bonus points credited to my account before my next closing date?

i believe that mine posted before the closing date,
but that's because I prepaid and I WANTED them to close early bec. that was my 2nd card for 2013.

It may depend on your preference and if you want to prepay and/or intentionally arrange an earlier or later posting.
