Mileage Plus Shopping - consolidated mileage posting questions / issues

Little bit of backstory:

I have miles expiring at the end of the month, and heard I could go to mileageplusshopping.com, buy a $1 song on iTunes, and this would count as activity for my account and extend my miles another 18 months.

Anyways, I did this around 12/24/11, and the MP Shopping site acknowledged I earned 1 mile on 12/30/11. However, checking my MP account on united.com, it still doesn't register that I earned this extra mile, and so my miles are still set to expire at the end of the month. Now I heard it could take 60-90 days for miles to process, but I thought once they posted to the MP Shopping Site, they should show up relatively quickly in my actual mileage account? Just wondering if it's normal for it to take another couple weeks for it to show up on United.com, or if I should start contacting someone to see what the issue is.

Also, I did check to make sure I used the same MP account on united.com and the MP Shopping site. Anyways, any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
