Anyone who has opened a new credit card account recently, can you tell me how long it took to show up on your credit report?

Should be fast, but I've had one not show up until after the first statement.

Depending on the bank and when they send your first statement, a month or two. With some banks it will show up very quickly. My Citi Diamond Preferred card showed up within a week or two. My Discover it card still hasn't shown, and I got it first.
Scores on the mend...
FICO: 650 (Discover/TU, 6/23/2016)
Cards I Use Citi Double Cash, Chase Amazon, Capital One QuickSilver
Sock Drawer Discover IT, Citi Diamond Preferred, AE Visa, QuickSilver One, Walmart CC, CareCredit, CreditOne (keeping for history for now)
Short Goal Reach 680
