    Default How long does it take for a credit card refund to show up?

    I returned something two full days ago at Meijer and the refund still has not showed up on my credit card. It's a Keybank card if that makes any difference. How long does it take for a credit card refund to show up because my debit card shows stuff immediately when I login to my account.

    I don't get why it's taking so long? I mean my purchases show up immediately, so what gives stores the right to take their sweet time when you return something?

    It takes a few days with a credit card. It takes longer for the refund to show up than it did for the charge. It should appear within a week. I would give it 10 days and then call if it doesn't show. With a debit card it's your money so I think they have to post the refund more promptly for that.
