1989 AMEX Backdating

Hello,

Today, I logged in to americanexpress.com and found out AMEX backdated my 2 new credit card accounts; to 1989 without even me asking.

This is going to augment my credit score by a few points.

 

I am a happy hippy..

Congrats that will do wonders for your AAoA

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?
