How long does it take for points to post for Shopping Portal?

Does anyone know if there is a definite length of time for points to post for using Delta's Shopping Portal?

My miles expire end of this year, I don't have much but don't want to lose it. Last option would be buying the 1,000 points for ~$30 but would rather buy something else than miles for $30.

Thanks!

It varies depending on the retailer. As you might expect, some of the more organized retailers like Lands End tend to post quicker. I would def NOT count on any SkyMiles Shopping miles posting before the end of the year. While they probably would post, the fact that you need them to post will increase the likelyhood that they won't.

It took me a short time (~ 1 week) on purchases with Red Envelope.com and also on Nordstrom.com

Consider signing up at Points.com (Points post in 2 or 3 days). Or useing Skymiles Dining (most dines post in a week to 10 days).

We should probably start a thread where people could post their purchase date and the date the points posted.

I've noticed that FTD points post the quickest, followed by iTunes. Both usually post within 2 weeks.

I recently made some purchases with Skymall and with skymiles shopping.
The purchases below were miles credited shopping with Skymall and through the skymiles shopping portal (FTD and Disney Shopping).

Hope you are able to get your miles.

Is it time for me to call Delta yet? I bought some contact lenses through skymilesshopping.com at visiondirect.com two months ago and the miles haven't posted. Seems like others are getting their miles pretty quickly . . .

If anyone else needs to contact skymiles here is the right address: http://www.delta.com/help/contact_us/skymiles/index.jsp

I just doled out the ~$30 for 1000 miles. It posted right away, 1 day.

FTD usually posts after its delivered. I ordered flowers for Mother's Day near the end of April and they didn't post til a week after they arrived.

The Skymiles Dining miles have been posting within 5-7 days of a qualified dine.
