I have made 5 visits to restaurants this month and the only one that has posted is a $3 charge at Jack in the Box when I was driving by and picked up a Diet Coke (and it posted the next day). It's particularly annoying because I'm not used to having to retain receipts. I guess that's now in the past. Anyone know what's going on or having similar experiences? (And yes, the credit cards used are linked with the program.)
Takeout or order in? If its takeout, a lot of restaurants use a different company to manage ordering or payment processing which often doesnt register wit AAdvantage dining.

Thanks, that explains most of it. If I produced receipts, would that make a difference, or if it's takeout, is it just a lost cause?

I dont know if anything has changed but I once requested 30 missed credits (a once weekly takeout for my colleagues and my lunches) for takeouts and all got credited. Wish this happened now when theyre LPs.

YMMV - make sure you can show it was on the right card.

So... a question I pose to the FT Mob of Experts...

Did I make a mistake by making a restaurant purchase on the last day of my billing cycle? I got the $25 credit 7 days later. But a couple of days prior to that, I made another purchase and haven't received my $25 credit which tends to arrive 7 days later.

My plan now is to see if the credit appears on my next statement (Ending Feb 9th). If so, I will not make another restaurant purchase on that card until the cycle closes... Think now I'm only going to get $275 credits... Was aiming to get the $300 max credit...

I think you might be in the wrong thread. AAdvantage Dining awards miles and loyalty points, not billing credits, and it has nothing to do with a billing cycle, as it's a third-party company.

if you manually submit a receipt (missing reward) which shows the restaurant name and the credit card number (or last 4 digits) of a card thats registered under your AAdvantage Dining account, they will usually award the points.

Or a screenshot of the charges as posted on the relevant credit card statement; I usually find that's easier than tracking down individual receipts

Yeah... You're right... wrong thread as this perk pertains to AMEX Plat/ Brillant card holders. I just was hopeful one of the AA AMEX members would read this as no one responded to my post in the AMEX forum a few weeks ago.

Cheers!

My latest theory is that AADining hates Hyatt's Wifi provider (at least the Regency in Sydney) and so hence using different browsers, phones and cache was worthless. They must have gotten spammed from it at some point or who knows... much like FlyerTalk hates NordVPN and I always have to pause it to use this site

I'm having the same problem. I see them in the AAdvantage Dining transaction history with the # of LPs noted, but none of them have actually posted to my AAdvantage account.

Mostly as an experiment, I made small purchases from AAdvantage dining restaurants near my house on both 2/28 and 3/1. It will be interesting to see how the miles/LPs post for each of them.

Does anyone have a recent data point on how long the 1000 point bonus for signing up and dining takes to post onto your AA account? It showed up on my AA Dining account pretty quickly but its been a month and the miles still havent posted to my AAdvantage account.

I'm happy to report this worked exactly as expected. 2/28 purchase earned miles/LPs for program year 2022 and 3/1 purchase earned miles/LPs for program year 2023.
