Re: AAOA Question

I don't believe that would be possible for anyone to tell you that answer. You'd have to list all of your account's ages in order to get that figure.

Re: AAOA Question

+1.  But, juding by the number of credit cards in your signature and adding a few installment accounts, auto loans, etc, I am guessing you have at least 30+ accounts on your credit report.... in which case your AAoA has not changed at all by FICO standards... it is still 6 years.

To get technical, since it's an average, you would just need the number of accounts including the new one, x.

AAoA = (6.4*(x-1)+11)/x

If x = 31, then AAoA = 6.55

Re: AAOA Question

FICO rounds AAoA down to the nearest whole number.  OP was at 6 years previously.  If OP previously had less than 7 accounts on his credit report, AAoA would now have increased to 7 years.  But that is probably not the case.

 

As mentioned above in my first reply, if all of the included signature credit lines are valid, AAoA would remain at 6 years.  It would also remain at 6 years if the account had not received backdating at all.

People make much too big a deal about Amex backdating.  Its a small perk.

 

The number of accounts and their ages are needed to be absolutely sure.  OP, where did the 6.4 years come from?
