Do CO bonus Miles post automatically?

Hi,
I'm new to CO but since i live in HOU now I've begun switching some of my business over. I flew a IAH-LAX last weekend and have another trip scheduled this weekend. A couple weeks ago I registered for a couple of promos on this forum via continental.com
My question is this?

Do CO promo bonus miles typically post immediately after travel or do they typically wait until after a promo ends to post?

I know with AA the majority of bonuses would post at the same time the butt-in-seat ones did but there were occasions where there was a significant delay.

BTW, I wasn't targeted for either promo but I figured it couldn't hurt to register and my feelings won't be hurt if I don't get those miles. I'm just curious though so I figured I might as well post.

Thanks in advance,
-g

My experience is that bonuses can come some time after flight miles are credited, but generally not more than a week or two later.

CO is considerably less creative than AA in its bonus mile offers, so I think it's easier for them to process 'em.
