+1  Be careful with the time zone differences. The app will most likely be time stamped with AmEx's server time. Not sure where that is.


I never thought about that!! I'm East Coast and AMEX is located in Fort Lauderdale, so I didn't even think about that!!


I think their cards come from Omaha, which is an hour behind east coast time...not sure if that matters or not. I'd wait a few hours until all the time zones in the US are past midnight, just to be safe.


You are probably right.  I had my champagne all lined up for when I press that send button 1 minute after midnight! LOL!  Guess I'll just be drinking champagne at that time!


Good decision, better safe than sorry. Enjoy the New Year's Eve celebration!!!


To add to this, last I heard from one of my consulting buddies Amex's primary datacenter was out in Phoenix a few years back.   I think it's a good bet to wait till the entire US is firmly into the new year before applying.
