Not 2-3 days anymore? I did a $200 JB with voucher combo a couple of weeks ago and I thought it didn't work, so I did a $98 voucher combo a few days ago. So far, nothing posted. I hope the $200 worked...

When I charge a fee does it show right away on the benefits page as having used that amount of the credit? Or I need to wait unti it posts?
