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.
should I see a score jump.........Hopefully it will offset my app spree..applied for 6 new cards approved for all of them
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
