5 days, except during the recent period in mid-January when SPG was having some issues in general:

It took me about 3 weeks and numerous follow up calls with both SPG and JAL until the points transferred.

Just made two transfers last week, on a Wednesday and Thursday, both around noon Pacific time. First one showed up Friday, so approx 48 hrs. Second transfer showed up on Tuesday of this week, so 5 days including the weekend, or 3 business days, which is not too bad.

Transferred 60,000 at 4.30pm ET Monday, didn't think to check JAL until now but they have already been credited (so less than 48 hours).

I also made a second transfer of 45,000 at 4.30pm the following day. I will report back once they arrive.

2nd transfer arrived this morning, so somewhere between 48-72 hours. Makes me think that these are batch jobs but that they run at minimum twice weekly.

SPG Transfer Times

Hi All,

Has anyone transferred SPG points to JAL lately? If so, do you know how long the transfer took? I would like to book a flight for next Monday using JAL miles but I'm worrying the transfer may take too long, as they quote "10-14 days." I've heard it doesn't actually take that long, and was hoping some of you may be able to provide more recent data points.

Cheers,
AM13

I did a transfer recently. I initiated the transfer on Sunday and I saw the miles in my account this morning.

Hope this helps

I've transferred dozen time, but it never took more than a week.
Typically transaction had been completed within a couple days.
If it took longer than a week, you should ask SPG soon to figure what's going on.

Transfer Apr 8th, hit 12th.
Waitlisted HNDJFK J res on the 12th and it cleared on 15th.

Transfer 15, hit 17th.
Waistlisted JFKNRT res on the 17th and it cleared 18th.

In both instances, F selling inventory was 4, several weeks out, yet they still cleared my WLs and inventory dropped to 3.

Did 4 transfers on consecutive days last summer of 60,000 each and there did see to be some batch processing going on. 2 processed on the 3rd day together and then the other 2 processed together another 3 days after that.

Just transferred 60,000 on Thursday and they hit Friday. Did another 60,000 on Friday an it still hasn't hit as of Sunday morning.
