They mail from Nebraska if I recall. My BCE was painfully slow to arrive; 13 days for me. That said, when I asked them to correct the member since date to reflect backdate year it was sent next day air on a Saturday, as well was the replacement card when I added expresspay.
It makes sense though. If you're applying then there is no need to rush the card as you aren't replacing a lost, demagnetized or destroyed card. I think in the replacement situation it's warranted and admit in my cases, even though it was a "replacement", the current cards were still functional and I could have waited.
Because the chicks dig it when I throw down the card to the waiter and...it comes in handy if I'm short on cash until payday and need a short spot. AMEX gets the booty, and that's important when you're a Pirate.
Minor vulgarity edit --Rev
Thanks guys for all of the answers....poor mail man, I've been stalking him like a hawk lol.
To those who asked, this is my first amex card, and I'm super excited about joining the club
ive already run about 1000 through my csp so I suppose not getting my bcp right away was a good thing....but I just really want it! I've already cleaned out a new spot for it in my wallet lol
.........I'm a loser haha
I was playing around on my Amex account online today, and noticed that it shows the cards if you click on the "Status" button under the Replacement cards option. I'm wondering if it eventually shows an expected delivery date once the card is sent?
Mine just shows the order date as the date of application, the reason as "new account", and the method as US Mail (5-7 days)
