Did Your Miles Post from the NYT .99 Deal?

Sometimes you win and sometimes you loose when playing the mileage game. Last weekend, I posted about an easy way to earn 1500 AA, 1400 UA, 1300 WN, 1000 DL, and 950 US miles. The deal was removed from all the shopping malls last Monday, but I was still hopeful that at least some of the miles would post. Well, a week later and the miles I was least excited about earning have posted.

Unfortunately, I’m not showing any pending activity for any of the other programs. Reader results are also all over the place, several report receiving their UA miles but have not received any others while some received their AA miles but no others. It does not seem to have anything to do with the order in which you applied for the digital subscriptions. I started with UA, then moved to AA and US, before finishing with DL. Others have had only their second program post, it all seems very random. In any case, the T&Cs state that “after you make a purchase with a participating retailer, miles will typically post within 3-5 days; however it can take up to 8 weeks for the miles to post to your account.” Even if the others are never awarded, my whole experiment had a total cost of $3.96. I would not recommend contacting customer service for unposted miles. If they post great, if not it’s no big loss. Remember, subscriptions cancelled prior to 120 days (and I have a feeling many of you will be canceling before then)do not qualify and the offer was limited to one per household. So be happy with what’s posted!

What’s been your experience??

  1. UA 900 miles posted and the 1,500 AA miles have not posted or even registered into my AA shopping. Was really looking forward to the AA miles, oh well. .0022 per mile is pretty fantastic!

  2. Yup, USAirways! Paid 99 cents 2/18, posted 2/21. Didn’t expect that to work but 950 miles put me over the hump to 55k. The bad news is that 55k won’t get me Envoy off-peak anymore.

  3. I got DL, US, and UA so far. I’m hopeful the AA miles will still come. I was careful to use separate browsers for each purchase so that cookies would not interfere with each other.

  4. I used all separate browsers as well but only had DL post 🙁 So upset, I would much rather of had my AA or UA post. Anyway, 1k DL for .99 is still a deal. Thanks

  5. somewhat like Andrew above, i am showing groups of 500 miles each- but i have 5 of them! all show transaction date the same as i did the NYT sub. very odd.

    more odd, it doesn’t list them as NYT- it lists them as ‘MP shopping holiday promotion’. is this what every has for the ‘store’ column?!?

    like i said…. odd.

    btw, only did one UA and one AA. AA does not show at this point.

  6. 1400 UA miles posted. Deal died before I got AA or US entered.

    Anyone else having trouble logging on to your NYTimes online account?
