SPG points transfer to JMB...how many weeks?

Hi everyone,

Iím a long time reader, first time poster
From your experience how many weeks (days?) did it take for your SPG points to post to your JMB account after receiving the transfer confirmation? I know that SPG tells it can take up to 6 weeks but Iím curious. I'm over a week know, and counting (mine JMB account is register in Japan if that makes a difference).

Thanks.

Fab

Thanks for posting this. Your post reminded me that I can convert my orphan SPG points to airline miles, in my case, to NW. I just got an e-mail from NW informing me that come October, I, as a status-less member having no WP credit card, will not be allowed to issues JAL award tickets using WP miles. With a couple thousand miles I transfer from SPG I hope to use up all my WP points and issue two JAL domestic tickets while I can. kojiro

Anyone have recent experience with SPG to JMB transfers? How quick was the transfer?

I understand that with some airlines the transfers are done in batch - on a particular day of the week. Anyone know if that's the case with JMB and what day of the week that may be?

Thanks for any insight!

someone has recently asked me about the SPG transfer. He waited for 2 weeks and the transfer still hadn't been completed. Let me try PM him to see if he can give us an update.

I did a transfer about a month ago and it took about 2 weeks.

From what I've read, it seems they do it once a month. So you can get lucky and get in right before the cutoff, or you can end up waiting 3 weeks and 6 days...

I had the exact same experience (thus forfeiting my ability to redeem EK F). It's really ridiculous that it takes so long.

Does anyone have recent experience with the time it takes? I'm hoping to book an EK redemption, but would hate to have the space dry up before the miles post!!
