Transfer Times to Singapore Airlines from Chase Ultimate Rewards, AMEX Membership Rewards, Citi Thank You Points, and SPG Starpoints

Good morning everyone, I hope your weekend is going well.  A few weeks ago, I learned about all the cool things you can do with Singapore Airlines miles (@ the SF Travel Hackers Meetup) and I am tempted to book my first award flight using Singapore Airlines miles.  I also heard that point transfers to Singapore Airlines were not instant, so I decided to run a few tests to see how long each transferable points program took to post to Singapore Airlines.

If you were to look at the below screenshot from my Singapore Airlines account, it would look like all the transfers took the same amount of time.  Not true.  The dates listed below are the dates that I initiated the transfer, not the actual dates when the miles posted.  I will go into more detail in the post, but here is the summary of transfer times:
