So I opened an account with Macy's last Wednesday, the 19th, and purchased something at the same time. I came home yesterday expecting to see my card but instead I get a bill for the merchandise I purchased! I haven't received the card and yet they're already billing me?! It's not an issue and I can pay the bill but good grief! According to the statement, the statement end date was the 19th...how can the statement close the same day I opened the account?

I opened my Macy's account in 2011 and the same thing happened to me. Billing cycle does not take into account the date you open your account. I think my cycle was 5 days left after opening my card and I got the bill before my card too.
