Checks have typically arrived in 2-3 business days after approvel in the past. Will update when check in hand.
Did you go through TheNuts to "expedite" it?

There have been some reports in the Cake cashout thread of checks bouncing on occasion, but that's nothing unusual, and pretty much every U.S. serving site has these issues on occasion. It's really more of an issue with the 3rd party processors, than it is with the actual site, as most of these processors process transactions other than poker, e.g. sports-betting, porn, etc., and are in a constant game of cat and mouse with various U.S. "law enforcement" agencies... FWIW, Juciy Steaks =Cake, i.e. JS uses the Cake cashier. In other words, as of today, I am not aware that JS has in fact obtained their own, independent of Cake, payment processing infrastructure.
