How long does it take to get the I-766

The approval notice of my I-765 says"

"Your application for employment authorization has been approved. The form I-766, Employment Authorization Document, was sent under separate cover to the beneficiary."

How long does it take to get the actual card (I-766) ?. The Notice Date of the approval is Sep. 22, someone has a similar case pending ?

I've read some people mention the status of the case changes to "card sent" or something like that. In my case, it just shows "Case approved". Does it mean the card hasn't been sent to me ?

I've seen that too, Card Sent.......... just give it a few more days for them to produce the card, then send it out. Your status should show Card Sent when it is mailed out.
