Series of rsync backups over SSH - avoid multiple logins

I'm running about 7 different rsync commands over ssh. How can I avoid being prompted for my password each time? I'm aware of sshfs w/ fuse, but that I'd like to avoid. Is there anyway to set my credentials to expire after a certain time period?

It doesn't matter whether I'm using a password or a key.

About the only way I'm aware of to avoid being prompted for a password is to create a key set that doesn't have a passphrase and use those.
