It only seems to occur in my experience with accounts that were in good standing or eventually paid off. It is a generous attitude and it puzzles me a bit. (I'm just naturally suspicious)RP

bamf70 - my Amex does the same thing. I originally had an account that was opened back in January 1998 that was closed several years ago. When I decided to try to open a new account early this year, all 3 credit bureaus for this new card are showing an Open date of 01/1998. I also checked my husband's credit reports since he's an authorized user on it (we use True Credit) and his reports are all showing the same Open Date for him as well.
