Spoke to a banker today and he said that the card has been issued in such volume that Chase ran out of metal for the cards. They will be sending out plastic in the meantime until their supply catches up. Once new metal is received they will automatcially send it out to replace the plastic ones. The card is evidently a huge hit.
I can believe it. I signed up for it last week and my wife was approved yesterday! I was going to wait for the wife to apply in 2 weeks but I was afraid Chase would end the promotion before than. Looking forward to the 200K combined points we will be receiving, along with the 50K we both received from the CSP in June/July.
With the 100k sign up bonus, of course it is
Yeah I was thinking that might have had something to do with it
This has to be a joke, right? They actually ran out of raw material for a credit card?
Dude, give Diners Club a call and ask about the 'myFICOer' effect and its impact on commodity markets dependent upon plastics. They still don't take apps today!
