The mint does not give me same day service,
I am lucky to see 2 orders a month, $2000
That is still 24k extra in the account.

Turn time shouldn't matter in that way.

The 10 days starts from when your order is submitted. If it hasn't been delivered, but 10 days have elapsed, then you may submit another using the exact same information.

I ordered my first set the evening of 2/7. Got them in about a week later and ordered another set 2/17 in the morning. That set stayed "on hold". Placed another order 2/27 and noticed 2/17 order was STILL on hold. So this morning i canceled both and placed a new one. Does anyone know if the 7 days is to the minute/hour? I wonder if placing my 2nd order less than 168 hours apart caused it to be stuck on hold.

And yes, i've searched for this - no i'm not reading 910 pages to find it. TY

The count is 10 business days, not calendar days, so I wait 11 business days just to be safe.

Cheers!

My question was answered so I felt it best to remove it. Thank you!

Same here. 10 days from last order, period.

They are fine. I would suggest not over doing it at first. Mix in regular purchases with those cards as well. I think it's hit or miss with people getting financial reviews on those cards.

Odd data point: Appears 2010 NA's are going from hold to process quicker than presidents.

I'm sorry guess they are just picking on me..

I will not tell them, I know others who are getting by with 10 days..

I'll just go with the flow, they did throw me on hold, and blocked my card...

Called them and that is what they said...

Wish they would treat us all alike...I feel miss treated.,...

SPG is OK, at least for now.

I brought coins to Cowboy Victor's Store for money orders but they refused. Then I used the coins to pay another bill which could be paid by cash only.
