Question: 'in the first X months from account opening'

Hey there!


I applied and was approved for the Chase Marriott Rewards card two weeks ago. I've still not received my card, though I know Chase says it could take two weeks to receive.


I'm wanting to meet the spending requirement to receive the sign-up bonus, but was concerned since I hadn't received my card yet and the fine print says:


after you spend $3,000 on purchases in the first 3 months from account opening.

I've Googled a bit and haven't found any information, so I've a question for ya'll:


Does "account opening" mean from the time I was approved for the card, or from when the card is activated? I'm hoping the latter since that makes the most sense -- I can't spend money if I don't have the card, nor can I access my account without it.


Thanks for any help!
