I'll wait for Deb Walden to tell me  Chase won't backdate accounts.

Have at it, no one is standing in your way. Smiley Happy

 

The reason that AmEx can backdate is that they term their cardholders "members." The date on the card means "member since," so they can honestly say that even though you got the card in the mail two days ago, you've been a member since 1994 or whatever, and therefore that's the year you get. (A bit sketchy about this happening with AU's, and my understanding is that some get lucky and get the member's original year, but most don't. Whatever.)

 

All other lenders report when that account was opened; thus, no back-dating.

 

I agree with PP that the Kroger 1-2-3 card date was a different issue. In that case, the account really was opened at whatever date showed for RBS, and US Bank simply took it over. Huge thumbs up for your part in getting US Bank to change on that one, but I think the Chase bit is a whole 'nother issue.

Re: New Chase Account

So far so good!    I need to spend just $300 more to get my $100  bonus from Chase.  Then, I will sockdrawer the card and continue with PenFed.
