It seems like it's happening to Amex every quarter of a year as you see here:

Does this mysterious delay apply to referral bonuses too?

Are people experiencing delays with co-branded cards (i.e. SPG) as well? Or just MR?

Mainly here.
The other thread is about completely different thing. The only relevant post to this thread is my post (which is off topic in that thread)

OP: I am in the same boat. Has your statement closed yet? I completed spending on 12/16, and statement closed 12/19. The spending bonus just went into pending today (9 days is kind of late, should have taken only 3 days). No sight of welcome bonus yet (normally should take 3 days to post, not going to pending)

Actually a couple of pages of discussion, but this is deserving of a new thread.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

Did you actually read those pages? They are all about refundable/cc farm/claw back. Anyways, debate stops now, and can I suggest that you add something productive and not just commenting on others? Thanks.

I guess you didn't bother reading the response to your post in that thread. We're all waiting, join the club. You can suggest what you'd like, for what it's worth. It's a free country. I'm sorry to hear I'm not as productive as you. Maybe one day I'll get there.

The emails or the bonus posting?

They took a couple months to post a BGR 75K bonus, and then it showed up as a Pt 100K bonus.

Still waiting on an SPG Biz 30K to post from September-October timeframe

That's strange. I know my bonuses have posted normally during that timeframe, as have many other's.
