Companion Pass renewal timing

New Arrival

I earned a Companion Pass this year - Feb 2019, with a special Chase credit card offer after spending $4000 in 3 mos. If I want to renew/earn a Companion Pass for 2020, do I need to earn 110,000 rapid rewards points by Dec 31, 2019?  And are the points I’m earning this calendar year able to be applied towards the 110,000 needed?

Yes, the points you are earning now count towards CP for 2020. The tally of Companion Pass qualifying points resets every Jan 1 so if you want to renew it and have it on Jan 1 you'll need to earn the points before then. Alternatively you can earn all 110,000 qualifying points in 2020 (starting from 0 points on Jan 1, 2020) and you'll get CP for the remainder of 2020 and all of 2021.

Thank you! If I reach 110,000 by 12/31/2019, would my renewal Companion Pass be for the 2 years 2020 and 2021?

No, when you earn Companion Pass it is good for the current year and the following year. In the scenario you described that would be 2019 and 2020.

With regards to what points qualify for Companion Pass, and the deadlines by which they need to be earned and/or post to your Rapid Rewards account, this reference has all the info you need:
