That should work. You have up to 60 days to report credit card fraud from the date the statement cycled. Your method is still likely to find the fraud before you would receive a paper statement.

I have the Mint app on my Kindle and use that most nights to review any transaction activity when I'm heading to bed. (I usually log in before opening a book.)
