Debit cards & checks

Dumb question but here goes.
Last year I opened up a savings account for my own personal spending money (just a savings account) and if I needed money I figured I could just go in the bank.
Well Friday I went in an opened up a checking account and ordered checks and a debit card. They couldn't print the card there and said it would take 1-2 weeks to get to my house.
My question on average how long did it really take?
We have a checking account already with card but we have had it so long I can't remember how long it took and they printed dh's off there when he opened his.

It really does take about a week or two to get a new card.  You should have it soon.

I think my last one was in 5 days or so from when I opened the account.
Well it wasn't our last one, we opened one recently and got the card (I put it away with the rest of the mail since we didn't intend to use it for a month), dh swears we didn't so he reordered it last Thursday it came today. Lol.

It does take a week or two. Sometimes less.

Ours usually come fairly quickly. I think we've never waited more than a week, but they always give a longer timeline in case they need it.
