Technically, Amex reports the AU account to CR the date first opened. Once you were removed as AU then that card ceases to exist on your name. But the what is reported on the CR will remain for 10 years before it gets dropped off so it will still add to your age.
What was being discussed here was the date first opened of an AU account being transferred to the AMEX accounts you hold in your own name. HTSU says that does happen. My question was what happens to the accounts you hold in your own name once the AU account is ended. Do you retain the opened date of the AU card you once had but do no longer or do you revert back to your own original opened date?
OP, my advice take what ever you get from amex and leave it alone. Knowing Amex it can be very bizzare and dont want to get your self into AA and FR with Amex. Couple of months ago Amex pulled FR on me and I closed all 3 of my accounts. What ever you think you are getting from Amex it is not worth the headache and hassele you have to put up with. I understand your curiosity and how things works, you are playing with the fire and trying to get your self into trouble. I was advised by several on this forum to stay away from Amex and I did not listen and finally I ended up closing all my amex cards voluntarily, What ever it is worth take our advice.
Concorduser, didn't you just get a gold card? I thought you decided to give amex another go.
