Skymiles shopping time to post?

How long on average does it take for miles to post from the Skymiles shopping site? The last two purchases I had to email customer service the order numbers of the purchase. Been a little over 2 weeks and nothing from my Officemax purchase. Ah-if only it were real time...

Mine usually post w/i a week. May depend on the retailer. My buys are usually thru Office Depot or Staples and seem to post quickly.

Took about a month for my last SkyMiles Shopping to post - was from Barnes and Nobles website.

I think it does vary by retailer, and may vary depending on when they submit the miles records to Delta. Some seem to do it just once a month.

I bought some iTunes on 9/19 and the miles posted today (9/22).

Depends on the retailer. My 9/8 purchase from posted yesterday. I've had others take considerably longer, never more than 6 weeks that I can remember.
