If I call in on 31 March before my flight leaves, will they show that I started the challenge in March (even though it might not hit the system until April)? Will the fact that it is a Saturday leading into a Sunday throw a wrench into the works? Will I be able to have my cake and eat it too? Or should I just suck it up and sign up now?
I wouldn't chance it. If it takes an extra day for it to hit the system not only will you not get the plat amenity at checkin, but you run the risk of that stay not counting.
