    After I have spent my requirement ($1,000 for 50k miles in this case), the terms say the miles will post 2-4 weeks after hitting the requirement. Other cards I've had do it 2-4 weeks after the bill is due. Is this claiming I can get the miles before I pay the bill.. or is it still going to 2-4 weeks after bill pay?

    Anyone have any experience getting the miles posted in 2 weeks? Maybe I'm just pessimistic :D

    I assume paying the bill early (before the due date) won't expedite the process at all (i asked this before about the citi AA card)?

    Thanks!

    In my experience with 98% of credit cards, miles/points post one or two days after the statement closes.

    A colleague's recent experience with a new delta amex was the miles posted a couple of days after the bill closed.

    Always after the bill closing, and somehow in my case it is always first few days of the month.
