  • It is not the 2nd of February. It may take an extra few days because of the way the banks interract and the way the banks post. You have two more days and if it is not there you can contact them.

  • It was deposited on Friday, Saturday and Sunday were not banking days. What it's telling you is that the funds should be available to you on the 2nd, and if they are not to contact them then. Banks have varying rules for making the funds available to it's customers.

  • Your money is in transit.

  • You need to be patient. That's not a hold up at all. Jan 28 was a Friday. Feb 2 would make it two business days from when the deposit was made. That's a pretty standard and expected time frame.
