    How long does it take for miles to transfer from one Continental Account to another?
    A transfer of miles from my father's account to mine was authorized earlier this evening. How long does it take for the miles to transfer from his account to mine?
    I figured it would be instantaneous. After it was not, I looked on the website for an answer and didn't find one. Thanks.

    For anyone who is curious, the miles transfer went through today, so it took less than 24 hous. The transfer was authorized at approximately 7:00 p.m. Central Time, and the miles were in my account when I looked late this morning.

    It has been close to instant for me in the past. I wouldn't be surprised if there are some glitches that slow things down around the end of the year as accounts roll over.
