Amex Backdating Question

Just for clarification - I only have one Amex card.  If I got a second or a third or a fourth (which I don't intend to do), would they all have the same originating date on them, even if several years apart?

Good Luck

On your credit report it will show an open date of the month that you applied for the card and the year you became a member, so its definitely possible to have new accounts that are technically older than you first if it was opened in a later month.

For example:

I opened my first Amex in 08/2010.  Got another Amex in 01/2011... but it reports the Open Date as of "01/2010"
