Im trying to figure out when my new cc's will hit reports.
WF received on 6/16 and it started reporting on 6/21.
Cap1 took a couple months to start reporting
Walmart Discover approved 9/10...made an online purchase that day for $20 off and started reporting on 9/12
Chase Amazon Visa - It hasnt started to report yet (maybe I should use it online to bump it some???)
ZYNC - not reporting yet (Should get card soon)
Amex Delta - they had hiccup and just generated number today...probably week or so from getting card
So when can I expect to have these new cards start reporting? Should I charge something small to Amazon to start the clock on that one?
How soon does AMEX report? (I want to confirm backdated goodness!)

Your walmart card will probably report within 2-3 days of approval, GECRB is very fast. Chase and Amex will definitely report faster than cap1, cap1 is ridiculous, but as I have neither a chase nor amex card I can't speak for exactly how long it will take.

From what I remembered reading was that cards typically started reported either 3 to 4 days after the first charge or the first statement being cut.

My Amex cards reported after the statement cut. The Wally one was I think a week before and I don't know exactly the date but I do remember the Citi Cards were the very first ones to hit my reports. Either way, I suppose you won't apply soon so there's no rush. Unless TU impedes it, you should have them all reporting in about a month - 2 weeks depending on the closing date.
