Because your banks invest it for that short bit of time before they add it to your account.

How come I can order from Amazon prime and get something next day, but when I send in a product rebate form, it "takes six to eight weeks for delivery?"

In a similar vein, how come when you attempt to unsubscribe from some garbage email lists it says it'll take 10 days before your unsubscription takes effect?

In both cases, of course, the company simply delays the action as long as they can get away with, and they hope that eventually you'll actually forget you ever submitted the request, because there's a darn good chance that they'll "forget" as well.
