Where I’m from it has your blood group on it and took about a month. How usefully this information is only time, or possible forthcoming post, will tell.

The card comes about 3 weeks after your first donation with a leaflet that gives you info about blood groups!
I'm o-, so, everyone can have my blood but I can only have o-
Got my card (funnily enough made of actual card) early at a little over a week.

I got mine 3 weeks after giving blood, it does tell you your blood group - i'm O+, the most common
so I'm quite lucky I guess if I ever need blood! Although like you I wanted to have a rare one
To quote the letter I am "AB+ or AB Rh (rhesus)". (or? )
Don't know exactly what that means, but from a quick google (and look in the leaflet), I think I may have obtained my wish about having rare blood...I can now go into the fetal position contemplating how screwed I'd be if I needed blood...
Oh well, atleast I'd be helping others out I guess...

...except AB+ can receive any blood type at all. Literally anyone can give you blood. edit: At least, anyone can give you red cells.
