How Long Does It Take? [for dines to show on RN sites]

I dined at a place on RN on Friday. It's Sunday and I haven't received any sort of email or update on my RN account yet.

How long does it usually take before the acknowledge the dine? I have verified that I used a registered card, and that the place I dined at was offering miles that day.

I just joined RN last month so this was my first dine.

It takes at least 3 or 4 days, and sometimes longer over weekends and/or with certain restaurants.

My midday Friday dine only showed up today (not yesterday when you had posted your question).

Friday to Monday, that's 3 days. I don't recall ever seeing it post faster than that.

(And the email typically takes at least an extra day! I often have long since logged in, seen the dine, and done the review, by the time I get the email asking me to do the review!)

This is interesting....

It looks like my dine did get acknowledged, but it doesn't show up on my recent dines, and I haven't received any credit or an invitation to review yet. I know it was acknowledged because the number of dines for VIP status dropped from 11 to 10.

3-10 days, and it can be anywhere in that range. Mine average around 4ish days.

Yes, for whatever reason, it seems that as long as you have a counter of the number of dines for achieving (or renewing) VIP status, you see that counter go down typically a day before your dine actually shows up on the list!

Of course, once you've attained VIP status for the year, there is no such counter any more, and thus there's no longer any "one day ahead" clue that your dine is about to post (until it actually does post at the RN site).

I went on and was able to review the place I dined at today. After doing so, I went for another dine, and this time, I bought a gift card to get the welcome bonus (It's a local "healthy" burger restaurant, not fast food, but not fine dining, but serves amazing food)

EDIT: It's now Wednesday and I finally got an email to review my first dine at Four Burgers... a day after I reviewed it. It makes me wonder if everything is manual behind the scenes!

Update:

The miles for my dine on 8/31, 9/4, and the bonus awarded 9/9 were all "paid" on 9/11.

It's 9/14, and it still hasn't shown up on my UA MP account yet as award miles. How long does it take for that the credit? I have confirmed that I have the correct FF# on the account, and that the cards I used were registered on that account.

I am in the same situation with US. A bonus for a dine says paid but the miles still not have been added to my FF account. I will give it another week because I have many dines still pending. I do not want to make many calls so I will wait a little longer for every dine to post before calling.

That's interesting; when mine said "paid" I usually see them in my airline account.

Please let us know how this works out for you.

Still not credited as of today.

I dined at another place today, and had a horrible experience. I can't wait to review this one.

Mine still have not posted. Anyone else having the same issue, but with a different RN program?

I thought it might have been on UA's end since they're plagued with computer problems, but if Open Jaw is having the problem with US as well, then it might be RN having a hiccup.

Mine just posted, looks like it took almost a month as I dined near the end of August.

Update:


My miles just posted after I had to call RN and USAirways.

I learned that RN sends over all miles to the airlines late Tuesday night. Most miles post in the frequent flyer account the next day (Wednesday). US handles it a little differently. Miles are not deposited in US FF accounts until late Friday night.
