Observations. Why is BofACanada even here/in existence.

I applied online 7 days ago.
  • Their website said: I could not be approved automatically, and would be reviewed by an account manager.
  • I called yesterday and was told my application had not populated the system yet.
  • I called today and was told I was "automatically" approved.
  • My account will be reviewed for 10 days as a security precaution
  • In 10 days my card will be created and mailed in 7 days.

So, 24 days to get a card...

It doesn't matter to me one bit, but gosh their system is convoluted.
I signed up for a diff card at a diff bank and was able to make "online" purchases within 1 min of being approved.
