It takes a few months because the credit card companies have to get the payments recorded, then make their reports to the credit bureau they report to.  Credit Karma gets information from Transunion but, if your credit card company reports to one of the other two credit bureaus, you may not see it here.  However, any future potential creditors will see that good information when they check credit reports.

Just hope you didn't close those cards because your score will drop if you did.  Need all the available credit possible for a good credit score.
