Being a newbie to this game I think I messed up. About three weeks ago I received a snail mail invite for the MP 50,000 miles Visa card. I applied, was approved and received the card. I have used it and was waiting for my miles to post to my acct. In the meantime I received an app for the C1's match my miles Visa card. Decided to call and have my wife sign up for this one. Was told my wife's card did not qualify because it was not an airline affiliated card but my MP card qualified. I was hesitant to apply for myself since I didn't have the miles posted to my acct. yet. The lady taking the app assured me I had 45 days to prove my mileage so I submitted the app. & was approved. So far so good, I thought. Here's where it gets sticky. I called MP to find out when my miles would post to the acct. and was told that they won't post until the end of my next statement which will be May 14th. That's over 50 days from the time I received the card. I thought that payments are due within 28 days. The problem is the C1 program ends on May 13th. Is it possible they set these dates purposely to prevent people from being able to do what I'm trying to do? Any suggestions on how to get around this time issue? I only currently have 30,000 miles in my MP acct and was hoping to get the 50,000 additional miles posted for the C1 program. Help!!!
