I've just applied for a Rapid Rewards Visa, and would like to use the points from that for a flight that would leave August 4.
They claim they will process my application within the next three days, and then if I am approved, send the card to me. Given that it's mid-June now, I am unsure it would arrive before July 1. If it then took an entire billing cycle (or, like United, six weeks) to post, that makes it impossible for me to use those points on that trip.
So: is it likely that the Rapid Rewards points would post in time to use on a trip in early August?
