Are you outside of the US? If so, I believe they put a little more time into verifying those accounts to keep fraud to a minimum--so it could take a few days. Plus, it's a holiday weekend, so I'm not sure if that will cause delays or not.
You could follow up with them to see if they need any other info from you, or if there is a problem.
