If you pay your credit card bill early do you still get rewards?

I currently have a AmEx PRG. If I pay my bill early, do I still get the Membership Rewards points for the money I spent? Or do the points only apply to the balance at the end of the billing cycle?

Paying early doesnt affect rewards. You wont get the rewards until the end of a statement period however.
