Did you at least get the 100k bonus from last week?


 

:smileysad: no!! :smileysad:(( It was actually seeing that offer  that led me to apply for the card but I was hanging too long contemplating...So I got the 25K bonus instead since that offer went...  As I mentioned I have never had problems in getting approved for any Amex but they usually hit me with a FR straight upon activation. I apply each time I do an app spree to even out my AAOA since I was member long ago in good standing :smileyhappy:)

So you get the backdate before you activate the card (which you then close)

Well it was instantly approved and the approval stated my card would be expedited I didn't request it.  I also got an email shortly after approval stating they they were expediting the card.

Mine was expedited with the box and welcome kit. But... now that I think about it my card was on a paper in a white envelope in the box. Now I'm pissed.

They are all over the map.  I can't remember what happened with my first PRG.  My SPG was overnighted.  My Platinum (upgraded PRG) was overnighted (I think).  I applied for the PRG again and I think they were going to send it standard, but I asked them if they could overnight it as I had some airfare on hold I wanted to purchase on that card.  They said they could do 2-day, but that was the best they could do.  My Hhonors card was overnighted. 


Starting Score: ~500 (12/01/2008)
Current Score: EQ 681 (04/05/13); TU 98 728 (01/06/12), TU 08? 760 (provided by Barclay 1/2/14), TU 04 728 (lender pull 01/12/12); EX 742 (lender pull 01/12/12)
Goal Score: 720

Re: So new Amex Plat came today..Disapoint :(

Hi there. So, did you receive your platinum card kit along with the fancy booklet, etc.? I also was approved for an AMEX Platinum not too long ago and had a similar case like you did --the overnighted card on a white envelope, wrapped in Fedex box. 

I received an email regarding the kit, but I have yet received it since. So, go figure....
