How often do credit cards update balances at Credit Bureaus?

Has anyone observed how often Credit cards (Cap 1, Barclay, etc.) update balances at the credit bureaus?

Weekly, Monthly, or at monthly statement close?

Do cards update all bureaus on the same dates?

Some CC companies will mid-cycle report. I've seen reports of Barclays, Discover and Cap1 (Cap1 is unique because the poster stated that they missed a timely payment).

 

All in all, if you are worried about who reports what, post what cards you have and we can try to help.
