everytime you get a card your aaoa will take a hit. but if you wait for jan. if you get approved all cards will be backdated to jan 2012 giving you an extra year on each card. 

just my 2 cents. 


"All cards will be backdated to jan 2012..."?! I thought, in this case for example, the OP Zync's opening date would stay the same and be in September 2012 while every other card applied for in the future will be the month of the application but with the year of 2012. Therefore by waiting to apply for the card in January instead of this month, the card would say it was actually opened January 2012 (instead of October 2012) and give you an extra 9 months on that specific card (not the Amex cards applied beforehand).

sorry for the misinterpretation. 

i meant all cards he now applys for would be backdated. not the ones he already has. 

but as op posted he does not care about his aaoa.

I go in spurts. Hit a few apps this year, and it won't happen again until I see another "sparkly" down the road.
