AMEX Expiration Dates

Just curious... I noticed my exp dates on my 2 new Amexes are 2016, 4 years from now. That is a really long time. My other CCs are 2 years from when I got them; though Navy is 4 yrs, also. Is that typical of Amex? Being a new cardholder, I thought they'd only give me a year or so.

It's very typical of AMEX, mostly because the majority of the card members tend to stay with them longer for the most part.

 

A lot of that has to do with who they allow to become a Card Member, their scoring method is quirky but it seems to work for them, they actually have a very low default percentage in the industry. I know at one time they had the lowest. 

 

Once people join AMEX, they just don't tend to leave, at least not for a long time.  I'm guessing NFCU isn't much different in that respect. (my cards with them are 4 year EXP too).

Thanks, RyVision. I do plan on being with them a very long time (hopefully!). Smiley Tongue

Does yours have a silver strip on the back?  Mine didn't even last a year without that strip being worn and sales-people having to manual input my card number.  I had to request a brand new one in a matter of months, with moderate usage.  I can't imagine people's cards lasting anywhere near 4 years (I know it's not related, but still) without that silver strip being worn.

Mine has the silver strip. Though I hardly use the card lol I think last time I used it was December.  If the strip wears, great excuse to get a nice new shiny card though, call, explain, they'll send out a new one right away Smiley Happy

I've had trouble with the signature strip on my AMEX Green Corp Card ~ it is faded & smudged to the point where it is illegible.    The magnetic stripe still works fine though.

Re: AMEX Expiration Dates

The longest I have seen, even though I haven't had many cards is my Discover More has a 5 year expiration date. I wonder if that is the longest?
