that's weird, i got approved on the 3rd, it was a non-instant as well. The reason why I know I am approved is because when I check my application status online it says that I am approved but I haven't received an email yet

If you don't mind, can you share your credit score that AMEX gave, when you applied for BCE, and what credit bureau did AMEX pulled credit report from.

I recently applied for BCE and was denied (~700)
BofA Cash Rewards | CapitalOne QuickSilver | Discover More
Gold Delta AMEX | Citi DoubleCash | Citi Simplicity
Chase Freedom | Kohls Charge Card
