IRS says my refund is available on 2-18-2014 but the H & R Block says 2-20-2014 why?

My refund shows 2-18-2014 on IRS website but H & R Block shows my funds will be ready on my Emerald Coast card on 2-20-2014  why the delay of two days?

Click on the card option on the H & R Block page and register your card.   Why the delay?

[ Edited ]

This year, the IRS Where’s My Refund site will give you a date range within which you should expect to receive your refund. The earlier date in the range shows the date the funds were sent to us and the latter date shows the date you should expect to see them in your account. Remember, if you chose to have funds deposited into your own external bank account and not to your Emerald Card, you should allow an additional 3-5 days for your bank to process and post the funds to your account.  In past years, the date shown on the IRS website was the date you should expect to see your funds in your account. This year, they've changed their process to show you the date the funds were sent. Since we still require processing time to get those funds identified and posted to your account, you should expect to see your refund posted within 5 business days from the date the IRS has posted.

 

Thank you,

Ok but the IRS site says my funds will be depopsited on 2-18-2013-and I am having it deposited on my Emerald Coast card. Why the two day delay?
