Amex Back dating lalala

I found my old corporate card that has a member since 2003. I was a AU for 5 years when I was working for a large company. What are my chances of getting my Zync back dated ?

My old card was a corp card and not personal. I hope so. That would be great.

I've seen a few threads on here that people were setup as AU's on corp cards and when they checked their CR it showed the backdating. I'm sure YMMV, but you can check to see after it starts reporting and if it doesn't backdate you could call AMEX and ask them about it.

Amex doesn't consider AU "additional cardholders" to be members, and will no longer backdate from your AU date. There is always a chance that you'll be an exception, but they closed that window last year. Amex doesn't call it backdating; they simply reflect your "member since" date. And they don't consider you to be a member until you have your own acct/m'ship. Being a cardholder on someone else's acct doesn't make you a member in their eyes. So, they no longer "backdate" AUs.

Re: Amex Back dating lalala

My wife was an AU on my original AmEx in 2002. She is also a AU on my current BCP from 2011 which is backdated for me. They won't backdate her member date on the website or the card but when she pulls a credit report it shows 2002 so that's what really matters.

It will backdate for the card reporting on which you are an AU/addtl cardmember. It's just for any cards the person gets in his/her own name that won't backdate to the AU date on the other cardmember's card.

 

Since your member since date is 2002 and she's a current AU on one of your Amex cards, that card is reporting on both of your credit reports with an open date of 2002. If she opened an Amex in her own name, it would not backdate to 2002. Of course, there is the rare exception that has been posted here. But that is Amex's current policy.
