Oldest card ? From which lender ? Mine ? It would be the Wells Fargo college credit card I got back in 13 when I got my first CC when I was 20-21 & still have it to this day obviously but doesn’t really get any use .. never had problems with Wells , they just never give me credit increasements though lol

Technically, my oldest card is my Chase Freedom, which started out as a WaMu card that I obtained in February 2008. It was my second card after my BK7. 

 

However, I was took advantage of backdating when it was still a thing with AmEx in 2014, so my AmEx Plat and AmEx BCE appear to have been opened in December 2000.

It was a thing AMEX did years ago before they discontinued doing it. They'll backdate your Member Since date but it's purely cosmetic now

Oldest open card is my CapitalOne VentureOne.  Opened 5/15 as a QS1 @ 1k, now 5k.  Funny, because as I remember my first ever credit card was a Cap1 platinum (or whatever they called it back then) opened around '03 which ended up being a CO lol.  (I paid them back though!)

VentureOne $5,000 | AMEX Gold Delta $1,000 |
Disco $1,900 | Citi DC $1,000 |
