    Default Instant approval for Blue Sky but no CL reported

    Hi everyone,

    I just applied for the Blue Sky from American Express and I got approved instantly. The page only said I was approved and that I'd receive my card in 7-10 business days but unlike Citi or Discover, they did not provide the credit limit. I have no problem sending in income verification but I haven't had something like this happen when I've applied for a credit card before.

    Citi Diamond Preferred MC (August 2012)
    Discover It (August 2012)
    Orchard Bank MC (June 2011)
    Bank Americard Cash Rewards (September 2010)

    Current scores: 715 TU / 724 EQ / 724 EX

    I've never applied for an Amex nor any card via online. I'd imagine you can give Amex a call tomorrow and a CSR would be able to let you know what your CL is.

    You have to call in to find out. AMEX doesn't tell you that over the internet.
