Amex Backdating

[ Edited ]

I have had severa differentl Amex Charge cards since 1998, 3 months ago I applied and was approved for the BCE . The date on the card says member since 1998. But today i was checking my fico reports , and its states account open 2012. I called and spoke to a supervisor and they told me they could not backdate this account since it was a revolver and not a charge account. Is that the correct answer to my question or not.

No, backdating has nothing to do with charge or credit.

 

PS - They've definitely become much more strict on backdating.  I've seen recently many who were refused backdating, especially on AU cards.

Re: Amex Backdating

I don't understand why your fico would report 2012 when your card reads 1998.  Amex usually reports the TL with the member since date automatically.

Re: Amex Backdating

Thats the reason I called  Csr, spoke with two csr and finally a supervisor. He stated the reason the card showed member since 1998, is because thats when I became a member . My charge card is reporting correct , just not this new account.

Re: Amex Backdating

Call again.  That isn't right unless policy has changed again.  But it makes no sense.  A lot of mixup with policy.   Keep trying.

All of Amex's call these days are recorded.

 

Crashem is right.  It doesn't make sense, unless there's another policy change where a charge can only be backdated for a charge, and a credit for a credit.

Don't argue too much.  Just call back and try again.
