Just applied for amex platinum delta card and something funny happened. It said my application needed further review after the application. When I clicked out of the application and went to check the status of it, it says approved and I should receive my card within the next 7-10 business days. Is there a way to see what my credit limit is or will it come in my welcome packet?

not in my online account either! Should I call them? Why can it say it needs further review but when I check the status it says approved?

I guess you need to wait for the card to come, they didn't tell me my CL too.

Congrats!

Amex told me nothing about my cards until they arrived. There wasn't even a hint of my Platinum in my account until it came UPS- I had applied for it on the phone. As soon as it was activated my account changed and reflected all the upgrades. Once you get your new card and activate it with your online account you'll see all details.

Nah, I just called the 800 number on my Zync to app for their Platinum charge. They transferred me several times and then once I was approved sent the new card UPS overnight. All my savings are elsewhere.

It said the general 7-10 days from today for my card to arrive according to the application status checker. Do you think I could get them to overnight it?

It definitely wouldn't hurt to call and try. It may depend on the type of card on how they deliver it. They've always surprised me on their cards - my Zync ExpressPay chip stopped working and when I called they were very apologetic, and asked me where I wanted the new card sent overnight to - I was quite shocked and told them to save a card - I didn't think it was a physical problem, and perhaps a problem on my account - I'd just swipe next time if there were no other issues. So, I'd definitely call and ask.
