receive time of Discover It?

How long did it take you to actually receive your card in the mail?

I app'd Sallie Mae & WM DS on Sunday I believe I'm waiting going to the mail box & getting the disappointed kI'd on Christmas feeling.

Yesterday I app for It & got a 5-7 day message so I called & after all the processing ect the rep said "you should receive your card in the next couple of days so you can start taking advantage of your cash back rewards" to me couple of days = 2 meaning Saturday.Are they really usually THAT quick. I'm dying waiting on my cards.

It took my DS the whole 7 days, but it doesnt stop there you sill have to wait 1 month or more for it to report to the CBs

I applied for that card in January, I no longer have the account though but I remember receiving it within two days too via FedEx. I missed the delivery guy that Saturday but then went to the office to pick it up a few hours later.

Yeah well I guess I should plan for next week. Oh well. I really want Sallie Mae ASAP for the gas / groceries!

I'm not really worried about when it reports to CBs.

Just nice to get it sooner I'm not patient. I'm only excited for WM DS fir the TU monitoring other than that it's a really blah card. Though they had a promotion after you app spent $75 get $25 back so I did that & already the items have been delivered on Weds before I've even got my card!!!

For me i think it was 3-4 days i forget. I got discover IT and BCP on the same day. I applied all on same day. BTW i got it thru regular usps not fed ex or ups or anyting like that.

Interesting how they are not consistent.

it just may depend where you are located in the country i don't know. The thing is when i went on that particular app spree, Discover and Amex came on same day and Chase came two days later.

The send it 2 day priority USPS. Keep in mind weekends don't count as a business day.  I applied on a Friday and I got IT that Wednesday.  Oh, and the box they send IT in is so cool, makes you feel VIP.  I kept mine.
