How long to get UK VAT refund posted to credit card?

Jump to last reply

Any idea how long it takes to get the refund posted to our credit card?

We returned from Scotland, exiting the UK at Heathrow on July 14. So far no luck on seeing the refund in our account.

I elected this route because one of our VAT refund slips required mailing, the instant cash back not allowable for that one. Since we were mailing one anyway I figured we might as well not lose the pound to dollar conversion we'd get hit with for the cash. They really slam you when selling foreign currency.

In any case we are greatly enjoying the tapestry we purchased, but I am still hoping to see the refund.
