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 :smileyembarrassed:

 

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 :smileywink:

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.
