Well, credit card companies report account information to the credit bureaus on a monthly basis but new accounts usually show up on your credit reports within 30 to 60 days after the account is opened.
With this said, make sure to pay your balance down to zero before your due date and before the information is transmitted to the credit bureaus to make the most out of your card's credit building potential.
Around 2 months maximum is what it'll take for you to see the account. That's how it goes for all lenders, really, just over a month from the time you get approved. If it's been more than 2 months, but you don't see it, you might wanna call Cap One, see what's up.
