Amex Question

I was just approved yesterday for my second Amex card (BCE). Will it just show up in my online account with them? I checked this morning and it is still only showing the Blue Sky card. I like how Chase shows both my accounts with them on the same page. Is that how this will look too? How long does that usually take?

Re: Amex Question

It will show up after you activate the card and sign up for online access. I generally have done this on the same day I activate the card.

 

Congrats on the new card.

Re: Amex Question

Ok, so you have to sign up for it to be in your online account? The Blue Sky card just showed up onilne but was not verified until I put the numbers from the actual card in. I thought this might show up before and just sit like that one did. I had an account with Chase and the same day I got approved for my second card with them, it was on the online account pretty fast. It didn't show up alot of information about the card, just that it was the freedom and what the limit was. I was hoping this would be the same. I want to see my first 5k limit with my eyes since I applied over the phone *lol*

Re: Amex Question

With AMEX just use www.americanexpress.com/activate and follow the prompts to add your card to your current account.

Unlike Chase you need to add your cards separately
