Hi there, We've accumuliated 65,900 points towards a companion pass this year using my PLUS card. I am now toying with applying for a PREMIERE card in order to get the 40,000 points to put us over the 100,000 needed for a companion pass. I am aware that the 40,000 points are not released into your account until you have spent $2000 on the Premier card in the first three months. I will easily charge $2000 on the card in the first month. Will the 40,000 points be released into my account during the first billing cycle (and prior to year end) if I do this? If it doesn't release until after the first three months, then it appears we are too late to grab a companion pass for next year using this method. Thanks!
