Some of us still earn Delta miles with this card or may want information about past or grandfathered terms and conditions.

Please do not spread panic about miles not posting until after the 10th of each month.
In most cases, miles post in the evening on the 5th of each month if it's a business day, or else the evening of the next business day. "Miles post for purchases made between (inclusive) 5th day of prior month to 4th day of current month."

    Using the new Truist card, I made $4K in purchases last month. My miles posted today 6/8 for that activity but with a transaction date of 5/31 (whereas ST would use the first of a month). So, other than that date issue, at least with my account, they have worked out the transition.

    So do you think it now runs from the first of the month to the last day? From the top of the Wiki: "Miles post for purchases made between (inclusive) 5th day of prior month to 4th day of current month." I did find this is what happened to my account and the dates listed and the posting dates followed this. I would like it to be on a monthly basis as that would be so much easier. I received all my miles, but I made all my charges after the 5th and before the end of the month. Anyone have charges outside of this period that can verify it is now on a monthly basis?

    Yes, my purchases were all earlier in the month, so I do not know what the cut off day is under the new Truist card.

    Has anyone been targeted for the Truist Delta SkyMiles Debit Card with 25,000 sign in bonus?
    I was targeted on instagram but now I can't get the link to work. Took a screenshot of the offer, but the link doesn't show anywhere.

    I think they have switched to a monthly cycle now. Dated June 30th and posting date of July 2nd. Prefer it on a monthly basis as it is easier to track.

    Points have not posted yet. Truist was posting pretty quick. Hope the cut off date was 9/30 as I have already started the spend for October.
