So if I've had 2k in purchases by the 2nd billing cycle, I will be optimistic that it might triggerand start my waiting period then, instead of after the 3rd cycle.

Hi, I signed up for the Chase credit card during the offer for 50,000 bonus points. I understand that I have to make $2,000 of charges within the first 3 months, and the credit card offer details said it could take 8 weeks for the bonus points to be credited to the account. What I'm wondering is, what is the trigger for recieving bonus points? Does the system simply wait the full 3 months and then check to see if $2,000 was reached?Or will it be triggered as soon as I've made $2,000 of charges, if that happens within 1 or 2 months? And then I only have to wait up to 8 weeks from the time the $2,000 trigger is met? I know I will pass $2,000 of charges in the 2nd month of owning my card. I need to purchase flights for October travel. I got the card 2 weeks ago. I'm trying to determine if I'll waiting until as late as the end of June to recieve my bonus points, or if I could have them as soon as mid-May assuming I pass my $2,000 in mid-March. Or does anyone have input as to how long you actualy had to wait to get your bonus points? Maybe nobody has actually experienced a full 8 week wait, and they are regularly awared more quickly than that? Thanks!!
