I want my card! How much longer???

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

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.

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

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)
