Wiki updated from post 449 through now

Also included data points where posters indicated time passed and miles not yet posted, but did not return to indicate if/when they finally posted. Still valuable to know how much time can pass before posting, IMO.

This may seem like a stupid question - but I cannot see any way to transfer from SPG to Emirates/Skywards... when I click on transfer, it only has donate to charity, gift to another member, or purchase broadway.

Where is the option to transfer to an airline? Or do you need to call?

EDIT: Nevermind, found it... finally!

SPG to Asiana Airlines (OZ).
Initiated: 01AUG
Received: 16AUG

Seems to me that SPG to OZ only occurs twice a month based on my research. On the 2nd and 16th of each month (I probably missed the 2nd transfer by a hair)
