UR to United transfer is not reliably instant.

Quite a shock to find out the transfers to United are not always immediate. I did two transfers yesterday (1/9) at noontime, big (237k) and little (37k). Well, of course the little transaction was done immediately. 24 hrs+ and still waiting on the larger transaction to post. In the past, I have done at least 4 other transfers to UAL, and all were instantaneous. Lack of reliability in transfer time is a big disadvantage to this program. I am glad I am not seeking a unicorn award. The bloggers pushing these cards almost never disclose this risk. Well, at least I know now.

Update Monday Jan 11: Early this morning, the missing batch of miles posted to my account. Approx lag time 36-44 hours.

Maybe it's a glitch in the client-side app. Maybe if you called United, they can see the miles in the account. Maybe the CSR can book your award flight. Maybe.

When it happened to me United saw nothing before I did. And they can't book the flight without the miles there.
