I applied for a Capital One Cash Rewards Visa earlier this week, on Monday 10/3. Approved on the spot, and they said 7-10 business days before I'd get my card. No way to expedite. I called back to check today, and it turns out there's actually an extra 4-6 business days on the front end before they send the card out and the 7-10 day clock starts from there. CSR still says no way to expedite.

I'm leaving the country on 10/14 to travel, and I'm hoping there's some magic word or esclation I can try to actually speed this up. Or am I just screwed & stuck with my AMEX?

You're trying to get the physical card. can you already access the account online maybe? Perhaps a CSR could give you the account number? I doubt it, and I'm not sure it would help anyway, just brainstorming.

If it helps, I think it took about a week to get mine after I was approved. The timeline is never as long as they say it is, in my experience.
