How long to transfer SPG points to Skywards

Hopefully as a newbie this is in the correct forum (apologies if not).

I appreciate that this question has been asked some time ago, though wondered what people's latest experiences were.

I have paid to transfer SPG points to Skywards; SPG say that it can take 'up to 30 days'. Does anybody ahve any recent experience of whether transfers are quicker than this - it does seema little strange that it takes so long...I'd have thought it ws simply a case of pressing a button!

Thanks in advance

Anyone recently try this transfer?
Time Frame for completing?
Seems like it should happen quicker now that they have the accounts liked up.

Update Requested Jan 26 posted Feb 1. Luckily the upgrade for First also appeared today but you would think with the new partnership it would be quicker.
