There were no story.  I told AMEX I remember having an AMEX card in 1997.  I said the account no longer appears on my credit reports.   I asked if my 2009 account can be backdated to 1997. To my suprise, I received the  response of a lifetime from AMEX.

So you never had an account at all from 1997? or you did just cant find it?

 

Also,

 

from the date u put in a request to the date it updated online was only 1 day ?

 

 

Lastly, do you have a contact? Im doing it legit, but it would be nice if I can call the person directly whom seems to be so nice. lol   send pm if you have a contact, im trying to backdate legit!     In Miami as well.

Yes,  there was an account.  I received a card as a graduation gift with my name on it from my mom.  I was an AU.    It took less than 24 hours to get the update online.  I have no contacts to AMEX.  Call or email customer service.

I sent you a PM.  You have to keep trying until you get the right person.    I wouldn't  have identified myself as being an AU.  It's their job to investigate all that if they choose.

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

Should I speed up the process of getting my member date updated with the CRAs?  I want to dispute with EX.   My statement with AMEX generated on the 10th.  Update with EX haven't occured yet.  They're usually  the first to update my account.  If the new member since date isn't listed when EX updates, I want to speed up the process.

I would be patient if I were you... you seemed to have gotten the better half of the deal with Amex. Let it work itself out.

Too late! I submitted a general inquiry via EX website  to check the accuracy of my account.
