Re: Victory in amex backdating war of attrition

Actually, this (and many other credit-associated) ordeal has really helped me in learning to stay polite when dealing with absurdity. Up until a few years ago, my reaction was to just explode in a torrent of anger and cruelty. The process of improving my credit has led to concrete examples of getting things that "cannot be done" done with persistent, calm politeness. This reinforcement has helped me apply this approach in other aspects of my life. Plus, the victory was a tad sweeter having worked for it. They sent new cards via ups on Friday, should arrive tomorrow. Now my graying hair and member since date will match!

In wallet: Ink Plus 10k, AMEX TE 25k. In bag: CSP 16k, USAA WMC 15k, Hyatt 13k, United MPE 12k, AMEX HHonors 3k. In SD: Cap 1 QS 5k, Discover IT 7k. FICO 08 says my EQ is now 844, was 510 in 2010.

Re: Victory in amex backdating war of attrition

This should be VERY advantageous. I had to go backdoor and rebuild my Amex relationship with now two business cards. If I get this backdate, I should be able to add a simple Green and re-establish a CL back to 98. AAoA has been THE component that I haven't been able to fix in my FICO profile. Got all my COs off, payment history strong and utilization is contrallable. As long as I don't have any surprises I hope to make it to 750+ range...
