if you wanted to get a blue cash card with your original green card membership date of 1989, this one you can't because you were in the costco group.
I'm not sure I'm following you on this one, Money card. The reason I say this is because my oldest American Express is dated at 2001 and I have the Costco True Earnings card (for my small business where I am the owner) which I got back in 2008 which is backdated to 2001.
My oldest account is a personal account. My newer account is a business account. My personal account reports to my personal credit report. My business account reports to my business credit report.
Also, my Macy's VISA - dated at 2001 - got converted to an American Express and the new card backdates to 2001 as well (not sure if it's backdating my VISA account or my American Express history to be quite honest).
