My experience when applying was this was a rather slow process. I'm sure I went weeks without hearing updates at times.

Because QF didn't issue new cards during Covid, my QF card is expired even though I'm still WP.

Anyone else had this issue? Just send the expired card with the explanation and screenshot from the app perhaps?

I unexpectedly got a replacement card because QF Money was active. But as mentioned above, I should have just done a screen shot from the app, as the card is just initials / surname. Also, my card has all the QFF money details (which I had to blank out...)!

BTW, I just received the email with the 30 day holding pattern. We'll see what comes first - Status Match or entry to OW!

Two emails through this morning:
Dear exceladdict,

And seperately:

Congratulations! Your tier with COSMILE has been upgraded to EXPLORER.

This was from QF Gold. Worst case scenario, I'll be looking to match back somewhere else in two years' time!

About the 24th based on your previous posts. I lodged mine on the 25th. Let’s see what happens - hopefully I don’t get caught up in the initials on my card v full name trap…
Nothing seen nor heard on my application 1 week on ☹️
