I'm in the same position except I'm at hour 53 right now. I call the phone numbers and nobody has been any help so far. They said I'm approved for the advance and it should be there but nobody knows why it isn't.
I finally got mine but it took 76 hours after my return was accepted. Don't bother trying to call anyone and get any help. Apparently all 4 places you'll end up being told to call don't have any information what so ever. You'll also be given about 7 phone numbers that are to the wrong place. Customer service was very good at just passing me to someone else.
They told me I was still pending and it’s been 4 days has any one else been waiting this long ?
It will be Pending until the IRS starts accepting 2019 tax returns - https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/irs-opens-2020-filing-season-for-individual-filers-on-jan-27
Even though I was accepted early ?
Every year the IRS will pull small batches of tax returns to test the IRS systems. The vast majority of tax returns will not be accepted or rejected until the IRS starts receiving tax returns on and after January 27
