How long does it take Amex to credit signup miles?

Hi FT,

I signed up for an Delta Amex Gold and did my 500 spend yesterday (for 30k miles). I was wondering if anyone had real life experience* on how long it take for this to get credited?

Thanks,

Bege

*Yes I read 2-4 weeks, however I was wondering if this was the usual window or sometimes they credit it sooner as I have a flight in exactly two weeks from today so for me - 1/2 a week is a big difference (although +1/2 a week is not so important )

I got the Gold earlier this year. IIRC the miles posted 2-3 days after my purchases actually posted. I did not have to wait until the statement cycle ended.

I just looked it up. I made my first purchase on 3/12/2012 and I received my bonus on 3/15/2012.

So, 3 days.

This is with Delta reserve card, although I doubt that matters.

What happens if there is a return on some items that bring it below the $ required?
