Now they will send you a letter requesting identity documents.  The only thing that speeds up the approval will be faxing them - you might be able to fax before you receive the letter.  They always request and verify applicants. 

 

Goodluck!

Is this a new thing that they are doing?

When I applied (it was 5 years ago though) I also received the 7-10 day message and about a week later I received the card in the mail.

Not sure if it is new. I wanted to apply online - I called and spoke with an analyst and was told that if I applied online it would take longer for an approval and suggested that I apply in person. I asked why and the response was they do identity verifications and if in person the verification can be done while apping.

 

YMMV but in my case they slid my DL in the register and before I was approved, I spoke to a CSR on the phone. who asked additional identity questions. 

 

The reason why I asked prior to apping was based on comments posted on this board regarding Nordstrom and waiting for a letter just to ask for my DL or other documents. I wanted to use my card for holiday shopping. Smiley Wink
