I'm a little confused on the backdating. While all my cards say "member since '11," when I check my credit report, it specifically lists the date in which each card was opened (ie. 03/11, 04/12, etc.).

If the exact date of when the card was opened is notated in your FICO account history file, then how is Amex's famous backdating system at work here, besides the little pat on the back from being listed on the physical card?

It has just been past the 5 month mark for me - due to get statement number 6 on May 10th, 2013. Every experience has been positive - only thing I could complain about is points not being as high compared to my NAB. Even if I were to pay $249 annual fee for the upgraded type of card I have with AMEX I would still only attract 1.25 points instead of the 1 point per dollar spend. Currently with NAB I pay $250 yearly annual fee with 1.5 points per dollar spent.

I am off to England next week, lets hope that my card does not get cancelled, I have notified AMEX of my travel plans.

Since April of 2007. i was 20 when i got my AmEx Clear card. i applied over the phone, explained to them that i'm a student and that my university does not take VISA cards (my debit card was a VISA) for paying tuition or books. they approved me for a $4,000 line. that card really saved my bacon since no other issuer at the time wanted to give me a decent CL. HSBC gave me a $300 CL (my first CC) and BoA gave me $500 (second card, which i still have). Several months down the road WaMu matched AmEx's CL when I applied for one of their cards
Junk I use:
AmEx Platinum for Mercedes Benz from, 75k spending ability
AmEx Everyday 8.99% + Prime, 44k CL
Chase Ink Bold, 35k
Chase Freedom (Converted from WaMu VISA) from '07, 5.99% + Prime, 30k CL

Junk I don't use
BoA Susan G. Komen Cash Rewards (converted from World Points MC) from '07, 7.9% Fixed APR, 30k CL
Discover IT (Converted from Discover More) from '08, 5.74% + Prime, 20k CL
AmEx Clear from '07, 4.99% + Prime, 10k CL
All 3 credit scores are over 800.
