About Controlling the Availability of Loyalty Promotions
You control whether a promotion applies to transactions by Activating or Deactivating it. A promotion only applies to a transaction if the transaction's transaction Date is with the promotion's start and end date period, and the promotion is active.
NOTE: You should keep a promotion active as long it could apply to a transaction, even if it is past the promotion's end date. For example, if the business rule is that members can submit transactions for up to six months after the transaction's date, all promotions should remain active for six months after the promotion's end date.
