JUST approved; question about earning companion pass

Librarian
New Arrival

We just got a new SWA card to try to earn Companion pass for 22-23.

I want to be sure we time our first $2K properly to be sure it posts in 2022, NOT 2021.

Since it is already December 5 & we won't get our cards for 7-10 days, are we safe just to begin charging all expenses? 

Or do we risk a timing error & need to hold off charging until January?

Is there any way to know when our first statement will close?

I don't want to ASSUME we are safe by any means!

It depends what your billing cycle is.

 

A Chase statement that closes in 2022 qualifies purchases for a 22/23 CP.

One that closes in  2021 does not.

We were approved yesterday, December 5.

It shows up in the Chase online account but no date yet.

I'll keep checking.
