@meta in most cases the date of application and approval is the same, if not instant, you’re talking a day apart. (For me it was instant so it started straight away but the card took 5/6 days to arrive with PIN) But take your point application is safer if they don’t give you a clear date.

The main part is it doesn’t matter when you activated the card.

Btw the Amex cards are interesting as the deal is as per the day you applied regardless or when it’s approved.
