App'd for Blue Sky - strange thing I haven't seen before

Postby MemberSince99 » Sat Jul 27, 2013 7:52 am

I app'd for Blue Sky on 7/23, thinking I could make use of the benefits and the backdating wouldn't hurt either. (I like their travel rewards for it).

I app'd thinking it COULD even be instant approval, but got the 10-14 day message (or whatever it is).

Ok I got that with the two cards I have now but in a few minutes they were approved so instants on those. No such luck with this one.

I kept checking back and it always said in progress. A day later I got an email saying it was being reviewed and I would be notified when a decision had been made.

But what's weird is, it is still in progress according to the website, and when I call the number listed there, which I've done 3 times now, it always says my application is in an area of the computer where CSRs and their status computer can't access it (in other words no one can tell me anything about it is how I translate that).

I've never seen that happen before. Has anyone else? I'm wondering if I should just give it more time, say a week to 10 days and if I don't hear anything try to contact the executive office?

Bear has been poked! I'm currently doing a F/R on Member to see if he is worthy of the new card.
Poke me and I will F/R you

Oh man that sucks AmEx Bear!

I hope it won't be a problem that 75% of my reported income on my application comes from using vanilla reloads to max out reward cashback, that won't hurt me will it?

Any other shenanigans you'd like to come clean about before I make my decision?

Yes I posted satire on the Amex Community Forum along with a few other members from here, alluding to the Centurion card and bigfoot among other things. I was just having fun!

Bigfoot is not real. However, I am.

I know AmEx Bear, and I try, really hard, not to poke you. But you know sometimes we just can't help poking the AmEx Bear!

Are you going to F/R me? Please don't close my accounts, I don't want to lose 28 years of backdating on the cards!
