Zync Backdated!!!

Yay!

I called the number on the back of my card this morning and spoke with a nice representative who was able to look up my old Optima account.  She had no problem finding it with my social and after I confirmed my information from back when I had that card, she confirmed that my account would be updated and reflected with my member since date of 1999.  Woo Hoo!!

They will also be sending me a new card.  Thanks Fico Fam for all your advice and information yet again!!

Thanks Bichonmom.  I took your advice and requested it exactly as you told me.  I said..."I just received my new Zync card on Friday and I want to make sure my previous relationship with AMEX is reflected via my member since date."  The rep said she would be happy to look that up for me.
