AMEX quick delivery

Yesterday afternoon I apped for the AMEX PRG and was instantly approved with a confirmation email stating that the card should be delivered within 2 to 3 days. I get home from work roughly 24 hours after I was approved to see a nice UPS envelope from AMEX waiting for me. That was fast!

 

On a side note, it is one nice looking card!

Re: AMEX quick delivery

Out of curiosity, which of their cards qualifies for expedite delivery? I know my BCP took its sweet time Smiley Happy

PRG and Plat afaik. You could always ask for the others but pretty sure those two are sent expedited delivery upon approval.

Re: AMEX quick delivery

Thanks for the info and congrats!

 

Since my refi is dragging, might have to get an Amex instead of the CSP before I head out of town.

Re: AMEX quick delivery

It probably depends on more then just which card you app'd for.  For example when I app'd for my Delta Card I already held a Platinum Charge card, they overnighted my Delta card and told me it was because I was a Platinum card holder.
