Looks like they aren't backdating AU's cards to the Primary cardholder's member date...hopefully they will get backdated when they get their own cards later on.

Even this is seeming to disappear. I have seen some people successful with backdating when they were an AU. But, more recently, Amex's policy for backdating is only applicable to members who were the primary account holder. I imagine, in the future, the chances of this will not at all be happening.

This is true. Policy seems to be changing every minute...who knows what it'll be like 15 years from now!
