PRG Mailed Address

Hello myFICO,

 

I was just approved for the PRG card and called to change the address that it would be mailed to. Unfortunately, I was told that this could not be done, and I would only be able to change the address after I received the card. I was under the impression that it was possible to change the mailing address? I applied with a 50K points offer code so my application did not ask for my address.

 

I am a college student living away from home at the moment, so it would be really helpful if I could change the mailing destination. Anyone have similar issues before?

 

Thanks in advance.

They will not. I have tried it many many times.

You need to wait for the first card to get delivered.. once it's there (or its over 5-7 days, which is the usual time frame for First Class Mail), you can request a replacement card which they would overnight you via Fedex or UPS.

Do you have to report the original card as missing to request a replacement?

No you don't, just tell them you received the card at your other address but would like a new one your current address.

Re: PRG Mailed Address

Sorry for more questions, but:

1) Which number do you call for replacements?
2) Need the original be activated to request a replacement?

 No worries:

1. You can call any AMEX customer service number, they can look up your info from your social.

2. You don't need to activate the first card.
