    I'm not really a newbie, but I have a question that might be helpful to all. I did a mini-churn last Wednesday (Ink Bold, HHonors Reserve, and US Airways card). Got approved for all three, but have only received one card in the mail (HHonors, which I received via UPS (!) on Monday). Any experience on how long I should expect for the other cards?

    It think my US Air card took close to 10 business days. That was in September.

    New cards generally arrive within 10 days. If not, it is a good idea to call customer support because there could be an error. I was recently approved for Citi HHonors Reserve that had not arrived 10 days after I was approved. I called Chase CSR and we discovered that there was an error in my mailing address -- unlike regular mail, no card will be delivered even if the postman knows the addressee and discovers the error.

    I got the US Airways card recently as well and remember thinking it took longer than, what in my mind is, "usual"

    Point of reference - my wife applied for her Sapphire Preferred after me and received the card before my US Air arrived.
