It took a few days for me... I think 3 or 4. But then it was there.

Contacting Amex credit reporting office directly generally yields the most prompt results.

I'm going to wait until July 10 statement generate to see if they update the changes then.  Right now, I just want to see the 1997 date when I log in.

I  should have backdated my 2009 account  when I first opened it.  The reason I didn't is becuase I had no proof of having an AMEX card.  It was no longer reporting on my credit reports.   I had no statements or anything.  It was all lost 10 years ago.   As I explained to the rep, I don't know what happened to the card.

I apologize if I missed this info, but how did you finally come up with the info to prove your case for backdating?  Or did they just take you at your word finally?

So, you had no previous account numbers, no previous CB numbers, and you talked them into backdating your account, with no proof whatsoever? That sounds...unlikely.
