'In Progress' generally indicates an application is being processed/reviewed, a neutral status, which may result in an approval or denial.  Nice looking card, GL!


Thank you! I hope I get it, if I do, I will make an oath to only use that card for ALL my purchases.

Thanks for the site! I tried it and still says "In Progress". My heart skips a beat when the page loads.

I got a Gold card no problem. Applicaiton approved instantly.

 

When I applied for BLUE, I got the in progress message. I was like, HUH? I ended up getting approved. Don't know my CL. The card has not arrived yet.

Haha I wish I applied for the Gold card instead of the Zync! How long did you wait before you were approved? And when did you apply? From the pattern I see, generally MOST people end up getting approved when it goes "In Progress"? I was instantly approved for Zync but this has put it to the test. I really hope I get this card!

Re: American Express Application Status "In Progress".

I applied online probably 3 days ago and I got the "in progress" message, too, and that it would take up to 2 weeks. I checked the online status, but I don't they updated on Friday. I applied for the costco true earnings and from what I understand they have to send the app to costco first so it could take longer.

 

If the application isn't successful then I would usually expect an insta denied. I do hate waiting though because it makes me feel like I'm going to be denied since the app wasn't insta approved.

Yep, the trick with the Costco AmEx is to apply in a Costco store, so that they know and can verify that you're a member. You find out then and there if AmEx approves you, and if they do, they give you a temporary card (pass? anyway, you can charge with it), and the card comes maybe a week afterwards.

 

If you apply via AmEx, you have a longer wait time so that they can verify with Costco that you're a member, and THEN they print the card and send it out.

 

Good luck!

Until it says "DECLINED" LOL


Haha! That's the point I'm trying to make! It seems like everyone who goes through with the "In Progress" experience ends up getting approved? But with my luck, who knows!

Re: American Express Application Status "In Progress".

I have a thread on here earlier in the month, it took two weeks for them to decline me for the second time. I have visited the application status page MANY times lol.

 

I hate AMEX, but I do live by the creed "He who does not expecteth is never disapointed" :smileyhappy:
