The points showed up just now. Not sure if my calls made any difference. Probably not. Anyway, all's well that ends well.

Good point! I apologize for being unclear. I meant that my monthly statement closed. My account is open and in good standing. I have had a Chase Marriott VISA card since they first came out.

Sure, that's a great solution, but most people have no idea that buying a ticket through Delta makes you a second-class citizen! I certainly didn't know -- and still wouldn't know if not for this...
