New Arrival

I got the emai for the promotion with Turbo Tax. I went rhrough the link given and my taxes are completed. 

I dont see the points reflecting on my account. Has anyone else had this problem? Do the points not go onto my account until the promotion ends?

I also completed my taxes through TurboTax and the Rapid Rewards portal. I received an email shortly after filing with the subject "Your order has been tracked through Rapid Rewards Shopping" and received the points within ~5 business days. 


You do not have to wait until the promotion to see the points in your account, but they also do not post instantly. 


Hope my experience was able to help answer your question!

I received mine within a couple of business days after I filed. One thing that I have noticed over the last several months through various points earning opportunities outside of flight points is that the points are depositing a lot quicker than they used to.  Even flight points I’ve noticed appear the next day following completion of an itinerary where it used to take 2-3. 👍🏻👍🏻
