Did you check your bank account to see when was the check cashed. If you know the date on which the check was cashed then it will be very easy for you to find out when USCIS received your application.

I used money order so it is really hard to check where the money order was cashed out.

My case status updated again today. It is still card/Document Production but the date changed from May 21st to May 23rd. I hope it is a sign that the card has been sent out.

I requested Jun 01 2011 as start date and it is the same as what USCIS printed on my card.
