Re: Applied for AMEX Delta Skymiles - In Progress

Still in progress. I will not call this time. Whenever I call they will put it in the system and the system automatically denies after pulling additional credit report.

Re: Applied for AMEX Delta Skymiles - In Progress

We are all pulling for you. For some reason, I have wanted this card for awhile and I dont even fly delta that much, lol. No new cards for me though until at least the end of next year

I fly both United and Delta internationally for work a lot. Sadly, all the flights are booked through my travel department. Delta and United are tied for the best international flights I have had. In last place, by a mile, is American. 

 

Stateside I fly United a lot because Chicago Ohare is my main hub I fly into. Although, I fly Southwest a lot out of Phoenix. I really wish there was just one airline I fly, lol

Re: Applied for AMEX Delta Skymiles - In Progress

I think the application might not even be processed if i dont call. I still dont see any credit pull on any reports. Does any one have any experience the status just stayed 'In Progress' forever

Re: Applied for AMEX Delta Skymiles - In Progress

I applied for Amex delta about 2 months ago and received the 7-10 day message. Status page kept saying "in progress" about 4 days later I got the approval email. I had previously applied for this card about 3 times over the past year, all instant denials.

Just the other night I used it to pay for dinner (about $550) and the very next day my account already posted the 30,000 bonus miles for spending $500 within the first 3 months.

Best of luck to you, I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

Re: Applied for AMEX Delta Skymiles - In Progress

From my experience, if you call them they can let you know if the application has been canceled then right away you'll see the status change from "in progress" to "canceled".

Re: Applied for AMEX Delta Skymiles - In Progress

Good Luck.   I was just approved for Amex Delta and received the approval email 4 days after applying.  Why not call?

Re: Applied for AMEX Delta Skymiles - In Progress

Its still in Progress. Do you mind me asking what were your scores when you got approved? They denied me in past saying my scores are too low. But that was BCE
