... mine was instant. They can mark it on your file, so when u call for a tow and do not physically have the "gold card" yet, they can see your gold status on their system if u need to use it that day (which is what I did). I upgraded mine and it only cost $30 total for 4 users in my family. Each person gets 5 tows/yr and up to 100miles each tow. So worth it.
