Re: AMEX Backdating...How long does it take?UPDATE

That's one of the reasons why I want to get an AMEX is to get the backdating that will increase my AAoA.

 

What's the % of FICO does AAoA count towards?

Yup!  I noticed each time I add the 14 year old AMEX account, it gives me an additional 168 months.  That raises my AAoAs each time.

Length of history includes three factors and makes up 15% of your overall score (3rd highest impacting factor).

 

  • Time since accounts opened
  • Time since accounts opened, by specific type of account
  • Time since account activity



Congrats, DI, on getting the card showing member since '97. Nice!
