US Airways Grand Slam Miles are Starting to Post!

Although it is a day later than advertised, US Airways Grand Slam miles have now started to post in some Dividend Miles accounts.  Mine have not yet posted, but others are reporting that some nice new miles began appearing in their accounts this morning.  So far it appears that the Audience Rewards Trivia Questions are counting as a hit – that will be great if it holds true!  Free and easy hits are the best kind.

I’ll write more tonight after my own miles post and I have time to sift through reports about which hits seem good to go, and which ones are causing some trouble.  For those new to the Grand Slam (like me), you can’t actually see which transactions count as hits – only the total number that have counted thus far.  To make things a little more tricky, you can only be certain that all of your transactions count if you have a multiple of four transactions in your account (4, 8, 12, etc…)  So, if you have 14 transactions, you will only receive credit for 12 on this go-round (multiple of 4).  You won’t be able to tell for sure if all 14 of your transactions are counting, or if only 12 or 13 of them are.  That is why you need to stay tuned to the Milepoint and Flyertalk Grand Slam threads – or just check back here and I’ll do my best to keep you updated on which hits are counting.

My account should actually be on an multiple of four, so hopefully it will be easy to tell if all of my transactions have counted (if all were processed by some magical “cut off” time).  Keep an eye on your US Airways Dividend Miles account throughout the day to see if some of your Grand Slam bonus miles start appearing.  I’d love to hear how things are looking for you!

  1. Mine posted for the 1st 4 hits (3,000) and the 2nd 4 hits (10,000). Including the Audience Rewards trivia, I have 10 total (Share miles, Skymall, Exchange Miles, Magazines, Track-it-back, 1-800-FLOWERS.com, Buy Miles, Marriott points conversion, SPG points conversion, and Audience Rewards trivia – 6 sets of 2 points posted).

    I’m still waiting on thanksagain, barclays card spend, hyatt points conversion, toolbar + searches, bischoff, officemax, network solutions to post to my account.

    I’m shooting for 36 with 6 rental cars and 6 hotel stays.

    My wife’s also posted for the 1st 4 hits (3,000) and the 2nd 4 hits (10,000). Including the Audience Rewards trivia, she has 10 total (Share miles, Skymall, Exchange Miles, Magazines, Thanksagain, 1-800-FLOWERS.com, Buy Miles, Hilton points conversion, SPG points conversion, and Audience Rewards trivia – 6 sets of 2 points posted)

    She’s still waiting on track-it-back, barclays card spend, toolbar + searches, bischoff, officemax, network solutions to post to my account.

    Shooting for 28 with her.

  2. I had 12 hits posted in my DM account and this morning I was paid 15,000 GS bonus miles for 12 hits.
    Posted hits include: Buy Miles, SPG, BW, & IHG hotel transfers, 1-800-flower, Mags for Miles, E-Rewards, Skymall, Points.com transfer, TrackitBack, Sharebuilder, Audience Rewards (Trivia only)

  3. @Cody, thanks for the update. Sounds like things are going well so far for you and your wife!

    @Amod Jain, you will get 3K for the first four and 7K for the next for, for a total of 10K.

    @RKToledo, thanks for the update! So awesome that Audience Rewards is a valid hit. 🙂

  4. I didn’t really take the time to start working on hits until a few days ago. Got to about 12 rather quickly, but I imagine nothing will post as of today. How often do they update the hit count?

  5. Where do you go to see if any hits have posted? When I go to my miles activity, my 1k points purchase and 20 miles for Skymall posted, but nothing else and it just shows as miles. My toolbar install & search hasn’t show up yet which I did on the same day as the points purchase.

  6. My husband had 8 hits post, but only appears to have gotten the 4 post hit( 3000 pts.) Is that you you see (so maybe audience rewards don’t count?) see below:

  7. @EricT, it just depends which hits you did and how quickly the transaction posted in your Dividend Miles account. They will post the bonus miles for the hits every two weeks starting yesterday (though they didn’t post on time yesterday).

    @Quickroute, looks like you lived up to your name getting those posted so quickly. 🙂

    @Jacob, you are in good company. Mine aren’t there yet either. Don’t be nervous (unless you didn’t get a registration confirmation email), probably just an IT issue.

    @Sil, I’m still there waiting anxiously/patiently there with you. 🙂

    @Ryan, my toolbar hasn’t posted yet either. You will see “hits posted” when they post the bonus miles every two weeks. Unfortunately, there is no actual description of the hits that counted, you just have to kind of figure it out based on your miles that post.

    @worldtraveller2, my best guess as to what happened is that the Biscoff transaction didn’t make it in time for the “sweep” they did to count hits. It just posted today, and for post people not until a bit later in the day. I think it most likely it just wasn’t counted toward the 8 in time. We’ll see what happens in two weeks when they “count” again. 🙂

  8. Guess what posted this morning?
    9/29/2011 09/29/11 GRAND SLAM 2011 MULTI PARTNER BONUS – 8 7,000

    So I can confirm that the audience rewards post as a hit, since he only had 8 listed, seen above.
