Might be longer if you request on Thursdays or Fridays. One of the entities (either WPN or the CC company) does not process withdrawals/deposits on the weekends. My last request took about 36 hours, might have been faster because I was not running any speed test and did not check until about 36 hours.
Beware with those Debit Cards that there are fee's associated with everything. If you use it they charge a fee, if you don't use it, they charge a fee, if you ask about it, they will charge a fee. I withdraw at the casinos
where I pay a fee to the company running the machine, ($3.00). Choice of methods when withdrawing is important. If I choose the wrong method, the fee will be different. One fee would be $36.00. I think that is a CC advance. Cancel if you see that big fee, and try a different method. I have also withdrawn at a major bank ATM with a $5.00 fee to the bank, and again at the teller window of my bank with no fee, but a limit of $1K.
Bottom line IMHO is that the debit cards are great if you win big, and costly for small money transactions.
