    I was wondering if anyone knew how quickly miles post when signing up for TD Bank?
    I am considering opening an account for $10000 to earn 15k miles. It seems like a better offer than sending $10000 more over to Bank Direct.
    Thoughts??

    I did this deal last year. First 1/2 of miles posted in a few days IIRC, second 1/2 miles posted after six months. TD Ameritrade is strict about making you keep your dollars or your securities in your account for the full period of nine months.

    Same timeline as above for SPG points.

    Thanks for the reminder. I actually did this deal for SPG points, not AA. But my understanding is that TD Ameritrade is pretty consistent with all these offers.

    MLW20 -- The better TD Ameritrade promotion is 20,000 SPG points for a $25,000 deposit to open an account. That can easily be transferred into 25,000 AAdvantage miles.

    Thanks for the responses! I was hoping I could open the account & quickly get the miles to AA before Nov 30. I also thought the $10,000 account gave the best bonus. $10,000= 15000 AA miles. If I put 25k in to earn 20,000 SPG, I could have the extra 15k in Bank Direct earning points & not locked up for 9 months...

    Either way I am going to fall way short of million mile status... If only AA waited one more year to change the program!

    I don't know about TD Ameritrade posting time, but my Fidelity 50,000 miles posted in 2 (yes two) days!
