I called MBNA a week later this thing showed up, it looks like they never received my application through the web.
I got this too after submitting an application.

Gave a call in, the CS agent had to leave a note to the new accounts / credit analyst department to see what they could do for me. The CS agent said that it might have happened because the system knows I had cancelled this card in the past and I had to wait 1 year before reapplying again. Not sure if he is just misinformed or this is a new policy; I wouldn't be surprised if they've started to clamp down on churners doing the 1-month spend & 3-month wait pattern.
