EQD don't post with statement close. They usually post earlier. As for spend in the end of December, that's what the last three pages are speculating about.

The prevailing wisdom in this thread seems to be that they will figure out a way to credit EQM and EQD to the current year even if the spend is made very late in 2017. I'm going to test it this year....

I'm going to try it this year. I'll spend my last dollar around December 28 and we'll just have to see what ends up happening. I'll be sure to post in January once I know. Worst case, I get an...

I've read above that AA PE gets 1.5 EQM. I just booked a flight in PE and it booked into "P" class and the current AA table shows P as earning 2.00 EQM, but labels P as "Discount First/Business". I...

FWIW, brewdog isn't asking about flights. The question is whether we can time the spend on this card to get the EQD to post to the 2018 qualification year. I'm going to try and will report.

Yup. No dice. "We are not offering any other options, but you may close the card if you like." Not a direct quote, but pretty much.
