If the bank is the one that has the credit card, they can associate the card with the account. This might be a violation of regulation E. However if the bank and the card issuer are not the same, they have to get a judgment and then go to the bank with that.

It depends. If you are going to withdraw cash from your credit card through an ATM and then manually deposit it to your bank account, it would happen immediately. But, if you raise a request with the bank to arrange for the funds transfer from the credit card to your bank account, they may take 3-5 working days to process your request.

Bank credit has two meanings, depending on the context. (1) If you have a financial account (e.g., checking, credit card, etc.), the bank might credit that account for some reason (e.g., refund a fee). The transaction line associated with that action will likely state "bank credit." (2) The more general meeting is when a financial institution extends credit to an individual or company through a credit card, loan or line of credit.

The Debit and Credit on a bank statement reflect the Bank's accounting records, not yours. So when you deposit money into your account, the bank owes you that money to you - it is a liability for them, therefore a credit entry. Similarly, if they charge you a bank fee, it reduces their liability to you, so they would Debit your account (on their books) and Credit an Income account.

If you have a savings account at a bank, then it is a bank account. If you have it in another kind of institution, such as a Credit Union or Savings and Loan, then it is not a bank account, although some people use the term "bank account" loosely and apply it to any savings account anywhere.

The best credit card offers depend on your credit score. It is actually better to talk to your bank instead of looking online. Getting a credit card through your bank will give you a better interest rate and still give you rewards.
