Not sure what is going on.....I was approved for amex this month...logged on to my account today ....said I have been a member since 1996.......wowwowowowow......my cards that they sent me intially say 2012.....
which is correct.....????? I was a AU back in 1996 on my girlfriend at the time account
If this is true ....will help my AAoa a great deal..
Your card shows the date it was issued, your credit report for AAOA and longevity will be the date you were a member earlier. AMEX quit putting the earlier date on the re issued/new credit cards about two years ago. I called them about the same issue after I closed my Amex card after 25 years and re opened it two years later.
Call them. My app sprees include applying for Amex cards as part of strategy to keep AAoA over 10 years. For every non-Amex new card I try to app for an Amex card to go with it. Since my Amex gets me 20 yrs of backdating it lets me add new accounts without taking a hit.
sort of not wanting to rock the boat i would sure like a card dated back then though
