I'll second the info about 2-3 months for contesting charges. Federal law limits cardholder liability to $50 ($0 for practically all CC issuers nowdays) if reported within 60 days of receiving the statement with the questionable transaction, so this translates to at least 60 up to 90 days (depending on billing cycle) from the transaction date.
