Disco Approval but won't expedite?

So related to this thread:

http://ficoforums.myfico.com/t5/Credit-Card-Applications/Applying-for-Discover-after-10-months-of-pr...

Discover has been sending offers for 10 months with solid apr's probably received 16 of them in the last 10 months.

Finally decided to app because SO is still within their first year too so the referral bonus would be doubled it makes it worth it, no spend requirements Smiley Happy

Starting Limit: $5,000 but went on the Live Chat and they said "at this time we do not expedite new cards".

I thought they usually do expedite if you ask. It's a nice SL the main thing we are happy about is the $200 free with no Spend requirements and effectively another year of CashBack Match Smiley Happy

Also, do they usually send an e-mail or something after approval? Because no emails received at all Smiley Sad

(Side Note - Sorry mods if I was if it's considered a cross post wasn't sure how to do this it's my first time and I'm on my IPhone).

Congrats on your approval!

 

Discover sends usually pretty quickly with tracking number. I got it within 3 days.

 

If you have USPS Delivery Notifications, you should get an alert for it

Re: Disco Approval but won't expedite?

I recently got my card. Don;t worry they didnt send me an email neither after approval and did not send me an email when my card was being sent. What you can do is just call them for a tracking number, the package is sent first class mail with tracking. I just kept calling asking for tracking, I believe the tracking was available the 2nd or 3rd day after I applied. They do send quick, I got mine no later than a week and this was with the weekend in the way, if you apply early in the weekday youll prob get it faster. 

 

They are very good with giving you updates and handing you over the tracking number for your card, just follow up with them!

Re: Disco Approval but won't expedite?

It's strange I checked all 3 reports just now and no HP has been done.

There's about 50 SP's codes as PRM* Discover (promotional inquiries).

Is this normal or not really?

Re: Disco Approval but won't expedite?

They don't expedite a first card.

They told me they will expedite future cards, though.
