I want my card! How much longer???

How long does it take for amex to send out their cards? 

 

I applied for both amex bcp and chase csp on 1-16-2013.... 

 

I got my chase card 2 days later. Then got another chase card  a couple of days after that. I really expected my bcp to get here today...but nothing! should I be calling in now, or am I just being impatient Smiley Embarassed

 

i live in Northern California if that matters...

From what I've seen their revolvers usually take longer than their Charge Cards. Given that it was on the 16th I would guess you have it by the middle of next week the latest. Perhaps you should have called them to see if they could have expedited it Smiley Wink

Hate to break this to you, but AMEX is SUUUUUUUUUUUUUPER slow at sending their revolvers!  It took me 3+ weeks to get my BCE!!

Don't have any of their revolvers but I have two of their charge cards. Both arrived pretty fast. They overnighted my PRG earlier this month, but only because I've had my Zync  for a couple years prior to. Patience - easier said than done.

Re: I want my card! How much longer???

Is this your first AMEX product? Once I got my first one in hand all additional cards were sent much quicker, typically receiving them within a couple of business days. I always ask if they will expedite the delivery and the answer has always been yes, our pleasure. I tell the CSR I have a big purchase I want to put on the card right away. 

All of my cards seem to have shipped from the Midwest and I am in Florida.

For personal accounts they usually take 7-10 days. But I ordered my Blue with paypass and got it 2nd day UPS to me

 

For biz accounts they UPS it 2nd day air in my experience and I got 3 biz cards from them.

 

PenFed is taking over 2 weeks right now for me approved on 1/9 and I am getting really impatient

I've been a customer since '05 and all the cards I have requested have been UPS overnighted free of charge. I have the Amex Clear revolver.

I recieved my Amex Plat in 3 business days, with the welcome package coming in 2 days. It was an ugrade from the gold if that matters.
