I know this from some of the many times I had to have Cheaper Than Dirt refund money to me. They charged me instantly but it took more than a week sometimes to get a refund and it was my mostly bank that did it. CTD had to get it through their system but then the bank added to the wait. Ah the computer age of electronics.
