If you do ever BT to AMEX, try not to BT close to the CL.My co-worker just got a FR because he BT $4000 / $5000CL.He ignored their request and account was closed by AMEX.Right now he is paying the balance off on a closed account.He said they still honored the 0% even after the account was closed.Told him that will look bad on his CR since account was closed by credit grantor with a balance.

It should start reporting around 30 days from the close of your first statement. Amex runs a month behind in reporting.
