Why No Shopping Site Credit?

I have miles expiring soon. I made not one but 2 purchases through the Flying Club shopping mall to Shops Away to extend my miles. Last one was Walmart at least 30 days ago. Flying Club did not update. Did I expect too much?

you need to check the T&Cs for each retailer as to when miles will hit your account.

They often aren't instantaneous and can take several weeks to credit.

I'm not sure if it's still running, but you used to get 250 free miles quite quickly for downloading the Shops Away toolbar.

Shopping portals can be hit and miss on what they track and when they track it. I would not rely on shopping portals unless I was many months out from expiration.
