Dela Amex Skymiles--Update

Hello everyone,

 

 

I am trying to see if I should wait around for the bonus skymiles.  Can anyone enlighten me the length of time it took to be awarded the bonus skymiles? I have seen some people say almost instantly after they met 500 minimum. I've already used 1,500 and PIF. What's the longest it's taken? I really hope they can award the miles within the next couple of business days...

 

Thanks for any input

Re: Dela Amex Skymiles

You're giving me hope!! Would you say this was before your first statement close date?

Mine was within a few days also, they also post the bonus miles for hitting a spending threshold quickly as well.

If it's similar to SPG, it'll be immediately after your statement closes.

Mine posted before I even PIF. They showed up the day my statement was issued.

I wonder if they have any control over when they're issued. Like if I called Monday stating I would like to make a purchase with them soon and I've already met the spending minimum.

 

So it seems for some people get the bonus miles before statement close and for some it wasn't until after the statement.

Re: Dela Amex Skymiles

I just met my $500 spend with the past week or so. I got the 30k bonus miles within three days I'd say. My second statement hasn't cut yet, so I think it posts when you meet the spend regardless of statement date. I experienced similar award crediting when I got $100
