I only applied for this card so that, upon approval, I could make use of the option to immediately make a purchase before the physical card arrived with the card number and a temporary CID.  This seemed perfect, as it would enable me to use the card to take advantage of a black friday deal that would enable me to pay off over time and get the $200 bonus since the item costs over $1k.  However, attempting to do so got my account locked.  I called a rep who said they cannot unock it until I get the physical card, but by then the deal will most likely end, thus the only reason I got the card is out the window, I just wasted a hard credit pull for nothing.  They also said maybe I could get the shipping expedited so I could at least have a chance to race against time getting the card before the deal ends.  I tried once and they said I had to wait 24 hours.  I waited 24 hours and called again only to be told that they couldn't expedite shipping the card after all.  By the time I get the card and can get my account unlocked the deal will most likely be over, meaning I cannot use the card for the only purpose that interests me.  I wasted my time and a hard credit pull just to be given the runaround.  Ridiculous.
