    Does anyone have any datapoints on how long it takes for miles earned from staying at a Hilton to post to your Mileage Plus account (assuming your HHonors earning preference is set to points/miles)? I had a Hilton stay towards the end of November, and the miles from that stay posted to my HHonors account on December 1st, but still haven't shown up in my MP account.

    In the past I've always dumped miles into my US Airways account, and those usually show up 4-6 days after they hit my HHonors account--this is the first time I've tied my MP account to Hilton, so I'm not sure if I screwed something up, or if it generally just takes longer than US Airways. Thanks.

    I have been experiencing up to two weeks after the stay, but using more obscure programs than UA.

    Miles still haven't posted...I'm going to give it a few more days, but if they don't show, is this something I need to follow up with Hilton, or do I go to United?

    My stays from Nov 19, 23, and Dec 4 have not posted yet :mad: About 2,100 miles.

    I need them to post accordingly, because I am participating in the Month of Miles promo [2/1000 miles] and hotel stays counts.

    Something is up...

    Interesting. Those first two stays are even longer ago than my stay. Makes me feel a little better that someone else has run into this, as well...hopefully someone just forgot to hit "send" on a batch and they'll figure it out, although you would think they have this automated and down to a science by now...

    They may not show up in your UA account for 2weeks or so, but it will be posted as the checkout date.

    Speak of the devil, they all just posted... Perhaps, someone is lurking here and pushed them all through?

    Yep, it sure did!

    goalie-sis stayed at the Conrad, DUB on Nov, 20 and the HGI, MOB on Nov, 27 and her 500 UA miles for each stay (along with 2 x 1,000 miles for the Hilton 5k Fall Bonus) posted yesterday so maybe a sweep was run?

    Sure sounds like it, from those who have posted here. Just seems like a long time for them to go without a sweep, though...

    +1 - my stays have always been posted within a week including the most recent Dec 8th stay that was posted in less than a week this time.

    I typically see them post within 2 weeks, but I also had 2 stays from about a month ago post within the past day or two.
