Yesterday. I'm just a little CR obsessed.
Well bugger! I decide to go ahead and get the score. My score actually went down a point with the removal of my last CA. Really odd...(ill post new topic on this) /scratching head

Be sure to read the Score Watch Guide. Services like USAA's or SW don't send out alerts for dropped accounts. The only way to find out if an account dropped is to pull a new report. You won't get alerted to the deletion of this account.
While you won't get a credit alert of any kind, you could get a SW score alert -IF- your FICO score within your settings is reached or surpassed as a result of a EQ FICO change, if any at all. Not every baddie deleting will result in a score increase. Read the SW Guide. SW monitors your EQ FICO weekly as opposed to daily. If it was deleted yesterday, the clock starts ticking on a possible SW alert. I'd give it until mid next week before worrying.
I'm impatient too. Personally, I didn't care if I burned the $16 discounted price for a new report. The info was worth it provided I knew that there would be a score increase.

No alerts on either TU or EQ for a week or so. Damn things still just sitting there.
