Thanks but a bbt bright for 8 k just popped up on my online account so im holding my breath
Sweet! Best of luck! My second card isn't in hand but I was told it shipped and it popped up on my acct last night. The third should be a day or two after. I thought this might happen to you. They are really swamped getting all these cards out and different departments don't seem to communicate with each other very well Also worth noting. I got the shipping email on the first card on 5/6 and got it the next day. When on the phone I was told that the same card shipped on 4/30 so maybe the shipping emails are behind as well
Well i guess they are going to do it .
Dear Gramps52 Your New BB&T Credit Card Has Shipped
As a valued client, we want to thank you for opening a BB&T credit card account. Your new BB&T Bright credit card is on its way and should arrive within seven business days.
They must be making cards in batches! haha I just got the same notice. That makes it 13 days after it was approved. I might get the third card by the end of summer!
I doubt even BB&T expected as big a new card customer response as the one they've seen with the new preapproval they put online.
That said it sometimes takes a whole lot longer to catch up on backlogs and is likely what some of the delay is all about.
Based on the couple reps that I talked to, that definitely seems to be the case. They're totally overwhelmed
