Re: Got approved for AMEX gold, have backdating question

I thought the policy change was that when an additional card member (ACM) gets their own account the new account is "backdated" to when the ACM became an AU on the account.


For example, I added my son to one of my accounts last year, if he gets his own card this year it will be backdated to 2011. His current card shows member since date of 1984. Under the new policy even as an ACM he would have had a card dated 2011.

There were a couple backdating policy changes. The first  change was to backdate to when the ACM became a AU. The second (11-11) was to only backdate when the cardholder was an acual accountholder.
