Upgraded Boarding

For all of you knowledgeable folks out there, I have the SW Visa Priority card and am wondering about my upgraded boarding benefit.  My anniversary date is December 1.  I have purchased my ticket and am flying on December 12th.  I did not pay for the upgraded boarding when I bought the ticket and wonder if the upgraded boarding will come off of my 4 possible ones for this year or next.  Is the benefit for when you purchase the ticket or when you fly.  Can you guys recommend what I should do?

Upgraded boarding can only be purchased within 24 hours of departure.  When the charge posts to your credit card is the date that matters so it would be on/around December 12 and thus apply to next year's credits.

 

EarlyBird Check-in can be purchased as early as when you buy the ticket, but based on what you have said, that is not the benefit you have.

I wasn't aware of the 24 hour part.  Thanks very much Middle Seat.
