Working towards Companion Pass, Need help with promotion understanding

New Arrival

Please forgive me if this has already been discussed. I am very close to earning my CP for 2021 and I have been mapping out my spending to get the most points out of each purchase. I have a couple different promotions on my account (not sure if they were targeted or applicable to all RR members) but the valid promotional period on these promotions extend through 2021?


For example, the 30% bonus promo offers me 30% more points after I spend 6k on my  Rapid Rewards Credit Card on purchases from 10/1/2020 - 01/31/21? Essentially, is this promo no good for this current year's CP earnings? I was trying to make sure I reached the minimum spend to be eligible but now that I'm reading it again, I'm not sure any of this effort matters!  


If anyone can help, It would be greatly appreciated!

Most promos post the bonus points 6-8 weeks following the end of the promo period. If the terms and conditions of the one you're inquiring about says something similar, then this won't be of any help for this year's CP earning.
