I’ve got one of those CapitalOne No Hassle cards, instead of getting worthless points, I get cash back based on how much I spend. I can use that “cash” on the same sort of useless purchases as I could with worthless points, or I can request a credit in my CapitalOne card account, or, yes, a check. I elected to just get the credit, $67.18 as an account credit.
Seemed like a good thing, I clicked, confirmed etc. and then got the message

I guess they send themselves a check, after all an electronic transfer couldn’t take 5-7 business days, could it?
