Card Promotions New Offer 30k Points or 200 status credits with CC Sign-Up

Did anyone receive the bonus points or status credits already after hitting the minimum spend? I hit it this weekend and got the opening bonus points from AMEX but no sign of the additional bonus yet.

Did the bonus ever come through for you @bellroy26 (and if so how long after the points hit your account)? Mrs MattA opened the AMEX Velocity Plat card within the offer period, hit the bonus spend requirement in the first month and points have just posted today but no additional VFF bonus yet.
 
My first statement arrived and it showed bonus earned 30k. However, for some reason Virgin Money stuffed up my Velocity details in their back-end system, and therefore those earned points will only be credited in the next statement cycle. I would have upgraded from Gold to Platinum had I received this 200 status credit in this current statement cycle, but this stuffed up delay would make me lose the opportunity to be upgraded due to expired status credits. Anyone has any idea how I can get some resolution from Virgin Money or Velocity?
 
I was approved for an Amex Velocity Platinum card literally on the day this promo started, however I didn't 'pick' my bonus until after the card was approved. What are the odds I can still make a case for the SCs from Velocity?

An update on this - Velocity has denied me the bonus SCs because I was only approved for the card during the promo period, and I needed to have applied and been approved during the promo period. Tried to argue the case in online chat, got told definitively 'no'.

Bummer.

You obviously told them in the end that you'll be cancelling the card asap bonus points arrive.

Cheers for the update.
