You can check your American Express credit card application status online or over the phone at (888) 826-3471 .

Here’s how to check your American Express credit card application online:
Enter your home zip code (the one you used on the application).
Click the “check application” button at the bottom of the page.
The system will then take you to a page listing the status of any American Express applications you’ve sent in. It will say “approved,” “denied,” “in progress” or “cancelled.” There’s also a helpful “next step” box beside the status that will guide you through what to do after checking.
An “in progress” status may tell you how long you can expect to wait, which could be anywhere from a few days to over a week. A “cancelled” status, according to users who have experienced it, most likely means Amex needs more information to verify your identity.
Here’s how to check your American Express credit card application status over the phone:
When prompted to say what you’re calling about, say “application status.”
Say or type the last 4 digits of your SSN when asked.
Say or type your zip code when asked.
Listen for your application status.
That’s all there is to it. Neither method is more involved or takes much more time than the other. If you’re approved, you should receive your card in 7-10 business days. If you’re denied, you can always call Amex’s reconsideration line at (866) 314-0237. But you’ll have to make a good case for why they should approve you (e.g. your income recently went up or some of the information on the application was incorrect).
To track your American Express credit card, you need to request complimentary rush delivery over the phone at (800) 528-4800. Amex will send an email once the card ships, and this email will provide a tracking number for either UPS or FedEx. The tracking number enables you to track your Amex card through the shipper. Expedited cards will generally arrive within 2-3 business days.… read full answer
You can request a rush delivery for any American Express credit card, but approval depends on how quickly Amex can confirm your information. When you call in, be prepared to give the representative your U.S. street address, Social Security number, and date of birth.
Here’s what happens if you don’t get expedited shipping:
If you don’t get rush delivery, your confirmation email will not have a tracking number. It will, however, estimate the card’s date of arrival. These cards usually take 7-10 business days to arrive. They will be shipped by USPS, and without the tracking number, you won’t be able to track them.
Either way, you probably won’t have to wait more than two weeks to get your card.
There is no way to know how high American Express credit limits are. You won’t know your American Express credit limit until you’re approved for an account. American Express does not disclose a minimum credit limit in their cards’ terms and conditions, unlike some other major issuers. All Amex says is that your credit limit depends on your credit history, debt level, income, and payment history on other American Express cards.… read full answer
One way to estimate what credit limit you might get on an American Express card is to read customer reviews of the card. People will often post what limit they received, sometimes with their credit score and income. But you should take any of these numbers with a grain of salt. Just because someone with a similar credit score or income got a certain limit, it doesn’t mean you will, too.
