Capital one approval, how long before I actually get a card

I got a new job that requires me to travel and get reimbursed, first trip is in a week so I'm trying to see if I'll get the card in the mail by then. Was approved on Monday.

Depends where you're at. Cap One ships from VA, I'm in PA and I got mine before the stated 7-10 business days. I got mine 3-4 days after I was approved.

My card arrived 11 days after application. It was something like 8 business days and a weekend, with the card arriving on a Saturday. I'm not sure of the date of approval because it was not instant.

Which day are you leaving for your trip?

In My Wallet: Amex BCP (12/12) $50,000, Chase Freedom (12/12) $16,500, Cap1 Quicksilver (6/12) $14,000, Barclaycard Rewards (5/13) $10,500, Citi Prestige (4/16) $30,000

I'm in Washington state. I leave Wednesday next week in the morning. I was approved on Monday so it would be 6 business days after. Would be nice to not have to go out of pocket for this trip and start rebuilding my credit right away.
