AMEX Blue Approval After 10-14 Day Message

I applied for the Amex Blue card and received the dreaded "10-14 day response". I called Amex and asked what was going on? They told me it was approved and the application was sent to the executive credit department to see if I would get a better APR. I didn't ask anymore questions. I then checked the website and it shows it's approved. I don't know limit or any other terms. I just got in with AMEX a year ago and thought I would give it a shot. I guess I will know more, once I get the card.

Blue Cash Everyday doesn't have an AF, just the preferred version.

Thanks guys,

 

I don't know my EXP score my last TU score was 718. Since that I have paid down my CC balances and are now 9% utilization. I know the reports don't update CC paydowns that quickly though. I have 2 other AMEX charge cards so that could have helped me. I just became a AMEX member last Jan. I'm just wondering what the limit will be. Status just shows "approved".
