No, the account does not have to be open continuously in order for Amex to backdate. I had a card that was closed back in 1991. In May of 2011 they sent me an offer to apply for a Green and I was approved. With no prompting from me, the account appeared on their web portal backdated to my original member date of 1987. I would recommend that you have her call again.
