Statement closed on the 5th and bonus points show. How long before they show in my SW account?
Under 5/24? Or by "my" were you not actually referring to yourself?

Strange.  Mine still haven't made it to my RR account.

Nope.  And definitely the correct account because my CP hit and I received the CP card in the mail.

Mine is a biz CC, so maybe that has a bearing on it.

I imagine this question has been asked before, but I’m having trouble finding it. (BTW, how in the world do you get the search on this site to do what you want?)
I screwed up royally. I thought that the companion pass was based on a years time, not a calendar year. Approved for both cards. One card points posted in Dec and one in January. I’m beating myself up about this. Is there anything at all I can do? Also, any good ideas for acquiring a large amount of points besides spending  another $50,000?
Let me add that the first bonus three month deadline is up so if by any chance there would be an option to return some items-that item wouldn’t be available.

Not sure I follow. When were you approved for each card? Did you receive any bonuses? If not when is/was the spend deadline for each card?

I applied for both cards back on Aug 31. One was approved immediately and one was delayed about about 2 months (moved some credit limits between cards and payed up balances). On the first card the first statement showed an opening date of 8/31 and a closing date of 9/21. I received the 60,000 bonus on Dec 22. The second card first statement showed an opening date of 10/16 and a closing date of 11/13. I received the 60,000 bonus for this card on 1/14/18. I hope this clarifies things, and thank you for taking the time to respond!

Nope, you blew it.  Need to get 50K RR through some combination of spend, shopping portal, dining portal or revenue flights.

+1 Also, keep in mind there is a business version, and personal of the southwest cards. Whichever 2 you applied for, are lost, but if you apply for a new one you still have hope.

True.  Could get the biz version or something.  Although tieing up three Chase CC slots on cards that can never be PC'd to something else would hurt.

My points never posted.  Figure I'll look into it tomorrow since it's been slightly over two weeks.  I gave them a couple extra days because of New Years and MLK holidays.

And to amend my previous post, bonus points earned on the Rewards Network dining portal don't appear to count towards the CP.
