Amex Backdating Success!

[ Edited ]

I received my new American Express TrueEarnings Costco Card last week and after researching backdating on myfico.com I called today.

 

I spoke with a very nice young lady in the replacement card department and simply explained to her that I would like for my account to read that I have been a member since my original date, 1987 or 1988.  She put me on hold for a couple minutes, came back and said congratulations!  

 

It was backdated to 1988, when I was in college.  

 

She thought it was hilarious as she was born in November of '87 and she thanked me for being a member for so long.  She explained that she filled out and submitted a form for my card and she also completed one for my DW, who is an AU.

 

Thanks to everyone here for sharing your experiences.

 

I apologize.  It appears that there are two threads of this message.  I must have double clicked in error.

Re: Amex Backdating Success!

Thanks guys.  

 

I can definitely use the AAOA increase.  I never would've known I could even do this without this forum.
