I had my mom apply for the business card & a personal card under the now-expired SW 50k points offer on Oct 8. She called to activate the card today so if the bonus still counts towards the companion pass she can work towards that for this year and next. The rep told her she had until Jan 8 (90 days from APPLICATION) to meet he $2k spend on each card. I told her to call back because I'm sure it's from the date of ACTIVATION. (How would they know when you even got the card in the mail?) I'm right on this, right? She said the first guy even tried to change the date for her but was unable to do so.
