not using it for a month or 2....  no they won't close it

 

I got a Amex card back in 2001 and never use it, They closed it 8 years later in 2009

I can't tell if you are serious or not, but no lender will close an account for one month of non use. The shortest I have seen is Barlcays, who says they will close it after three months of no usage. Usually it is a year before they think about closing it.

Legendary. Smiley Happy Did you ever find out what happened to the card? Can you still ask Amex to send you a replacement card?

I have no idea where the card is now, i did call them and they told me the account was closed due to inactived (  O WELL) . I did get backdated to 2001 on my new AMEX BCP, i got last month.
