If possible, in addition to the number of days it took, please post DAY on which you initiated transfer, and the DAY it posted, as well as whether it was online or on phone redemption to get a better fix

Time taken to transfer points to KF

I recently did a bucketload of point transfers from various hotel and credit card programs to KF, and decided to track the transfer times out of curiosity.

Thought I'd share them, in case it's useful for anyone:

From Hyatt - took 4 days
From Hilton - not sure... after 5 weeks the KF miles were still not in the account and I had to chase Hilton repeatedly to get it credited!
From Priority Club - 5 days
From Citibank Malaysia MasterCard - 2 days
From Citibank Singapore Prem Miles - overnight
From Citibank Singapore MasterCard - 2 days
From Marriott - 2 days

Maybank (Singapore) has always been more than a week for me and I do this every other month.

Usually 2 or 3 days for me. Never had an overnight one.

On the other hand, Amex is almost always overnight for me.

Yes I was pleasantly surprised myself. For my most recent transfer, I initiated through Citibank Online shortly before midnight... and for investigative purposes decided to check my KF account the following day. They weren't in the account in the morning and early afternoon, but by that evening the miles had arrived!

Any experiences from Amex Rewards (Singapore)? i have quite some miles there but want to keep them as long as possible on Rewards since they never expire. But just wondering how fast I could get them available on KF, should I need to book a ticket one day?

For me, usually overnight, or the day after (as per my above post).

I transferred PriorityClub points over on 9 Jun. Been weeks now and still no sign of the miles. Should I be worried? The OP mentioned 5 days, but maybe he/she got lucky.

Sorry to bump..

Just done my first transfer out of DBS Altitude VISA (40k miles) and it was overnight. Pleasantly suprised... :-)

Unfortunately my second Priority Club transfer in recent weeks took over 3 weeks. Guess there's no fixed standard...
