Even after all the denials they sent you the letter telling you it had been approved? Hmmm... I usually get those letters after approvals as well, but I can see it on my online account long before I get the letter in the mail... Did you not look at your account online during the meantime?

 

PS. Ditch the First Premier immediately!!! Ditch it!! You're paying $95 a year for the AMEX green, there's nothing that FPB card is going to do for you except waste your money in FEES!!!
