Almost none anymore. It's such high potential for fraud that banks just stopped doing it. What happens in fraud cases involving these is if given immediate card right after opening up account (most bank managers/auditors don't get a chance to review/audit new accounts until next day) they will then go to ATM and deposit a bogus check and take out the $100 or so that is made available and then abandon the account.

Those $100 losses add up quickly and based on the fact that it doesn't provide any true competitive advantage to offer it (based on the quality of accounts that it would truly bring in) most banks discontinued it.
If you need immediate access (perhaps to make an online purchase) you may be able to purchase a pre paid debit card if they sell them on premise, but it would have to be funded wholly with cash.

None, AFAIK. debit card production and mailing is all off-site these days.
