How long after getting a new card do they report?

Hi all,

 

Im having great success with creditrebuilding. I just got a discover card with a $1500 limit. I've had for about 3 weeks now. Will this show on credit reports when I get my first statement or does it take some time?  Just curiouarid I get a score bump since my only other card had a $500 limit. Thanks!

I've had my discover card for a while now and it has yet to report...I guess they report when the statement closes.

The truth is out there...
FICO scores: 758 (EQ) 741 (EX) 768 (TU) 8/14 | Goal score: 750+ (all 3)
Tradelines: Capital One QS NPSL (5.0k) | Discover IT (6.0k) | Walmart Discover (5.0k) | Chase Freedom NPSL (7.3k) | Citi Simplicity (9.3k)

Discover told me they take 60-90 days after opening before first report.

 

My card had been compromised, they'd closed it and sent me a new one, and after sending new card gave me a credit increase.  I got to 2 months with no change on credit bureaus so I called and asked and thats when I found out the policy.

@kpresod This scares me. Government involvement may mess things up even more and may make GW adjustments impossible.

That could be true...on the other hand....accounts that has been settled with creditors over a period of time; can in-fact be removed at an earlier date! Rather than scaring one's report for many years. I believe the government is all about finding more ways to make more money....in my opinion. So I don't see why they'd stop gw letters, and give people a hard time in accumalting more credit cards, loans, mortgage, etc......Then again I can be wrong about all of it! We just gotta wait and see.

Ugh 60-90, dang. My impatient butt was hoping for sooner. Oh well, sit and wait. Thanks for the replies!
