When do I get frequent flyer points from my credit card?
If you get a credit card that offers frequent flyer points per $1 spent, how long will you have to wait before you can use them? While it does vary between credit cards, you can usually expect points to be credited to your frequent flyer account once per month – around the same time that your card's statement is issued. For more information and a bonus points acquisition breakdown, see our handy Ask Finder column.
