I just received my Amex BCE card in the mail today!! Since it was expedited, UPS had to deliver it with a signature confirmation. Unfortunately..no one was home and when I checked the tracking number, they already made a 1st attempt and will try again tomorrow. Bummed coming from work, I saw the UPS truck driver, followed him, and got the card!
Best part of this:
Your FICO score: 766
You should sign up for My Choice by UPS. The free package is really cool. It basically let's you control the package online. You can have them hold it for you instead of attempting delivery. If you pay you can have them deliver to a different address. A lot of really cool benefits. I use it for my Amazon deliveries http://www.ups.com/mychoice/features/

You lucky SoB. Amex seems to dislike me for whatever reason. I've had the Zync for 11 months now and they won't approve me for the BCE. My theory was that they are prejudiced against younger people (I'm 19), but your approval blows that theory out of the water. Congrats!!

I applied directly on the amex website. Always.
Creditcards.com has a link for the BCE with a better sign-up bonus: $150 after a $500 spend instead of $100 after a $1000 spend on AmEx's website.
I got the BCE a month ago, and sent a message through the website asking them to match the creditcards.com offer, and they credited $50 to my account.

BCE is definitely a nice card to have.
