I did it with a classic reward flight. My end date was 31 March and I booked and took a classic reward CBR-OOL return in mid march and no drama, WP retained on 1 April and even new physical card was issued. So it definitely works.I don't know why but I'm nervous about booking a Classic Reward flight to take advantage of this. Yes, I know they're eligible but for some reason a paid flight seems safer.
However, if you have only flown classic rewards in the relevant time period for your 1 qualifying flight, there will be no SC for you to benefit from the rollover provisions for SC (unless maybe there's something in points club - I don't qualify for that so have not really kept up with benefits). I didn't really care about that, just happy to have retained WP.
