Purchases made with a credit card often take several days if not a few weeks to appear on a billing statement. If a purchase is made near the cutoff period for a particular card cycle you may wonder whether which statement it'll appear on. Thankfully there is a way to check on this information without waiting for the bill to come in the mail.
Open the Internet browser and navigate to the financial site your credit card is through (such as Bank of America, American Express or Wells Fargo).
Type in the username and password, then click "Submit." In a moment your account information appears on the screen. If you do not yet have an online account select the "Register" option, then type in the requested information.

If you have multiple cards through the same company, select the credit card you want to check the purchase on.
Choose "Recent Activity," and all the recent purchases appear in a list format with the most recent at the top. Look through the list for the purchase in question.
