Although this is presents a fun opportunity to revive the thread on what is meant by co-branded. 

 

Cards issued by Amex bank will backdate.  Cards like the SPG card or Hilton Card, which I would still call co-branded, are issued by Amex and will backdate.

 

Cards issued by any other bank using the Amex payment network will not backdate.  The BofA Amex, PenFed Travel Rewards Amex, anything like that, no backdating.
