DW apped for a new account and was told for an immediate decision to call a number. She called the number, and whoever answered didn't know how to help her, she just kept asking for her account number. DW hung up and called back. This time, she was transferred to new accounts, however she just received a recording that the office was closed. The 2 things I find odd are: 1. The number Amex provided online doesn't appear to be the number to call to complete the application. and 2. The hours are listed as M-Sat 8 to midnight and Sun 10 to 9, but apparently they are closed on Sundays.
Yeah DW just tried again and gave the rep the 'tracking number' for her application, the rep said to contact the shipping company to track the card shipment. *sigh*
The number I get when I get that is 1-800-582-6471 and it's just the new accounts people. Is that the number you were given?
