Deadline for companion pass points

Explorer C

I will earn my last few points toward next year’s companion pass on a flight Dec. 27th. Will these be applied since they are so close to Jan. 1st? It seems like points from flights are applied immediately.

I can't speak for flight points only flight credits. Yes flight credits seem to hit within 2 days. If on an outbound of a r/t reservation it may not hit till the completion of the return.

As long as the flight is not the first trip in a round trip the points will post immediately.  If you have other flights on the same reservation the points will not post until after you have completed those.

Assuming Dec is your only flight or return flight, yes it posts immediately. If Dec 27 was your outgoing flight and Jan 1 or later was your return flight, however, the points would not post until the return flight completes, assuming they are on the same reservation.
