My oldest account turns 30 today!

It's hard to believe that 30 years have passed since I opened this account (for those of you wondering, I'm 51) :

Thank you, score_building! 

 

It was sad to see so many old names go out of business.  I often wonder what stores will still be around 10 years from now!!!

Don't forget Sterns!

 

I used to have cards from all of them. I remember one of them merged with Macys and my account was converted. For a long time I had two Macys cards.

 

Thirty years and still open is a major achievement. Congratulations!

I must be getting old. I had to stop and think about how old I was 30 years ago. <sigh>

Congrats on having a card that long.
