Credit Karma almost instantaneous update

I opened a new credit card account today at 12:00 and the hard search was on my Credit Karma report when I logged in at 2:00 PM.

It may even have been there earlier although my email notification only came through at 3:30 pm.

Either way this pretty good for a free credit report.

Most of my hard searches have been with Experian and with the MSE Credit Club you need to wait up to 30 days to see the latest report.
