Mypoints Mastercard Question

I enrolled in this card in early April. I've received my first statement already, but the 2000 points have not yet posted to my account. Does anyone know how long it takes for the initial points to post?

I`m a little concerned, because unlike a FF or Hotel card, I have no account number (that is known to me) with which to verify if the card is posting to my account.

Anyone else have this card?

It took approximately 60 days for the points to post for the bonus signup. Then a few weeks later I received the "easy points" along with the other 1 pt per $2 spent for the first month's statement.

Now I find that I get the first 1 point per $2 dollar spent about two weeks after the statement close. Then I get the other 1 point along with all the "easy points" about 2 weeks later.

I haven't quite been able to figure out how the easy points work since they never match any of my purchases and are not labeled by purchase (other than "easy points"). I haven't figured out how much effort I want to put into keeping track.

Hope this helps!

Thanks for the reply, help and insight. I received credit for the charges that I made, but still did not get the 2000 bonus points. I`ll wait a little longer, but isn't it more usual for the enrollment bonus points to be credited first, then the charge points?

My statement close date was 02/13. I got my first 1 pt for $2 spent on 02/26. I got the bonus sign-up points on 03/23.

I had to email them after 60 (more like 90) days passed for signup bonus. Got it a few days later.

By the way, do they still offer the card? Google finds it on citibank.com, but there is no direct link any more and the ad is gone from MyPoints.com.

What are the feature you guys (MyPoints CC holders) like?
