App'd with BofA online - approved - still haven't heard

App'd with BofA online (after being pre-approved on the online site), about July 8th.  Said "Congratulations, you have been approved for a $4,000 CL."

 

Haven't heard anything yet - and no inquiries are showing.

 

Is this normal?

Re: App'd with BofA online - approved - still haven't heard

What did the approval message say about time till you receive card?

 

I'd probably call if you don't hear/see anything in the next couple days.  BoA told me once when I PC'd my Plat Plus Visa to Reward Visa that it could take up to 3 weeks to get new card....but I had it in a week or so.

Typically BOA has been slow in sending the cards to me. My card took about 2 - 2 1/2 weeks by the time I got it after it is approved. I might take couple of days to kick into their support system. Give them a call and talk to them. They are pretty good about it.

As far as I know boa is fast with new accounts you might get your card in 5 to 7 days ....PCs are completely the opposite they are very slow it takes weeks and weeks in my case 4 weeks and till now no card yet I called'em yesterday was told it was mailed Friday ...i did a PC to their AMEX acc cash rewards..

BOA bites ! pay attention to how you treat their cards !

PC is product change, such as going from a Chase Disney to a Chase Freedom card.

Re: App'd with Boa online - approved - still haven't heard

oh, now I'm enlightened!!!  This is one of the side effects of not using cc's much in my earlier life.  Not savvy to many cc issues.  like pc'ing.  Ah, well, it's a new life--So many things to learn.  We'll give them a call and see what's up.  The screen died shortly after the "You have been approved -- $4,000 CL" message.  Hope it still stands.  Thanks!!!

You could always call and ask. No harm can come from that.

Update:  It's all good - just darn s-l-o-w.

App'd on 7/8.  Called in today and found it was approved on 7/9, but the card may take up to 30 days to arrive.  I'd love that guy to arrive sometime this week - so fingers are crossed. I had assumed there was no inquiry because DH had not received a ScoreWatch Alert.  When I pulled myFico EQ report, the inquiry does show up as FIA CSNA on 7/9/09.  That's the first time I have not received a ScoreWatch Alert when I was expecting one - guess nothing's 100%.  Thanks concorduser, txjohn & boamacy (name!!!) for keeping me patient.

 

That's the last of the new cards - now we can sit back, drink lemonade, let them age, and in a few cases check in for CLI's as the months roll along.  DH has gone from $500 to $38,400 and I have gone from $500 to $4,100 CL's in the last month or so.  (DH has a very nice 776 EQ score).  Very nice for newbie rebuilders - we're less than six months after Ch13 discharge - thanks you guys rock!
