IMPORTANT: Know your credit card's annual earning cutoff date.

Your December statement closing date is the cutoff for purchases made with your Rapid Rewards® Credit Card to count towards a Companion Pass for that calendar year.

For example, if your December statement closes on December 16, points for purchases posted to your statements made after that date will not count toward qualifying points for the year.
