Mods, please move this if I have posted in the wrong forum. Travel related as it has to do with Southwest's Companion Pass. Hoping there is some advice from others that can help me.

I am trying to get my bonus spends for a Southwest Plus and Southwest Premier card to post in December of 2017. I made an error on going over the $2,000 limit on the Plus so I have the 60,000 Bonus points already in my Rapid Rewards account.

I have reached the $2,000 spend on the Premier, however, the account statement closing date is December 26th. I called Chase to see if they would move up the closing date to give the points time to post to my Rapid Rewards in 2017 after my statement closes. Chase said any changes won't take effect until the next billing period.

My concern is the 60,000 points on the Premier won't post until January, 2018 and I won't have a Companion pass due to the points posting in different calendar years. I know I will only have the Comapnion pass for 2018, if I am Lucky enough to get the points to post in December. Chase wasn't very helpful and when I mentioned we were trying to get the bonus points in the same calendar year for the companion pass the rep said they would not change the closing date based on the need to get the bonus points. She said it can take 6 to 8 weeks to get the bonus points.

What happens if I close the Southwest Premier card? Will the points then post in December? I don't need the card.

FYI, tried to get the Southwest Business Premier Card but got shut down on the 5/24 rule. I also tried to get a Business Relations Manager to fax in a business application for the S/W Business card. She told me they do not have a paper application for this card. There was a paper application for 2 other business cards, just not the S/W Business card.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.

I would be afraid that you would then lose the points that have not yet posted. Just my opinion.

You will be fine - if your statement closes on the 26th, you will see the points very soon after that, usually the next day. At this point, I would just keep everything as it is.
