    Stupid me, I forgot to register my new Sapphire VISA with iDine before heading out for dinner with friends yesterday to a restaurant in a city I don't usually visit (and thus don't know the iDine places). Turns out (a) I picked up the bill (b) I paid with my Sapphire card and (c) it's on iDine's list. I just registered my card; any chance their reconciliation of purchases with card registrations happens with a day or so delay? How does it work anyway -- does iDine tap into the credit card processor's feed, or do they get the list of credit card purchases from the restaurant, or... ?

    Not sure how the feed works but I have registered a card the next day after dining, and everything posted fine. I think you'll be Ok
