App Status Link Always Correct?

Postby moxie » Sat Feb 02, 2013 8:57 pm

Hi everyone, I am new to this forum but have spent my last few hours reading posts to learn more from everyone!

I have been wanting to get in with Amex for awhile but never pulled the trigger because I was too scared of being denied. I am still a full-time student working very little but will be graduating this summer and have a job secured starting in August with a very good stable income.

Previously, I was going to just wait until I started the job to apply, but I got too impatient! I just applied tonight for the BCE and got the dread "pending/please wait 7-14 days" message. :( However, I googled around and found the Amex online application status link. After putting in my ssn and zipcode, it stated my name and application as being "Approved"! :)

Just wanted to ask...is that application status link always correct?? I would hate to have gotten my hopes up and then receive a letter in the next few weeks with a denial...

Thank you in advance for your help!

Yes, I've applied for several Amex cards, and that link is quite accurate on the status of your application.

So congratulations on your approval!

Thank you!! Does Amex usually send an email with the approval or am I just waiting for the letter/card in the mail next week?

Yes, they should email you about your approval as well as send a letter as they did with me.
