Re: AMEX not expediting new cards, at least one CSR says so

Perhaps the distinction is with new card members versus new accounts for existing card members. As pointed out above, Amex might feel more secure using USPS than FedEx for a new card member.

Re: AMEX not expediting new cards, at least one CSR says so

I had to have my new BCP replaced because the member date was wrong and they had no problem expediting.  Seems to be a YMMV with different CSRs.

Never take credit personally

Amex BCP $24,900; Chase Sapphire Preferred $24,200; Discover It $12,500; Chase Ink Cash $15,000; Chase Slate $13,500; Citi TYP $12,900; Amex SPG Biz $3,000; DCU Visa $10,000; Logix FCU $15,000; Citi Home Depot $8,800; Lowes $8,000; Care Credit $6,000; Penfed Platinum Sig $16,000; Barclay Arrival Plus WEMC $15,000; US Bank PLOC Overdraft $1,500; US Bank Perks+ Visa Signature $8,600; US Bank Edge Rewards Business $10,000; PenFed PLOC $5,000

My understanding is not on your first account with Amex.

Get a myFICO recommended credit card
