Thanks for the replies, I guess I'll find out this week if it comes in time or not. Also do these new blue cash cards have the member since date on them? Because I remember a few years ago when I had the regular Blue card it did not have the member since date on the card. This is actually my second time coming back to AMEX, I haven't had one for about 3 years.

wouldn't that be a shame if they mistook my card for a platinum?

The two amex cards I have I had to speak with a CSR to verify mailing address and they expedited the card, I was approved for the Zync on monday and got it wednesday. The Gold took a bit longer, applied on friday and got it Thursday... I think if you apply by phone they can rush you the card, I guess it has to be done while they process the application
Amex: Business Platinum (09/12) BCP $10,500 (03/13)
Visa: Capital One Journey $750 (04/11) Chase Freedom $1,800 (04/12)
MasterCard Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select $8,500 (05/13)
Discover: Discover It $2500 (07/11)
Store Cards: Amazon $3900 (12/11) Macy's $500 (04/11) Kohl's $500 (05/12) Victoria's Secret $750 (11/12)

Just got my card today in the mail, wow that was quick! Just one quick question...when I set up my online account it says member since 05...because I did have one back then. On the card itself however, says member since 12. Is it possible to call up and get them to get me a new card that says member since my original date which was 05? If so I'll probably do this when I get back from Europe.

Called up earlier, said it was no problem that even if it doesn't come by the time I leave I won't have a problem using the card they sent me today. Thanks for all the help and replies, good to be back to AMEX.
