Does the membership date include Costco American Express card?

Let's say for example somebody opened a Costco American Express credit card in 2002 and let's say in 2006 they canceled the card. But in 2012 they decided they wanted a Blue Cash card. Being it's a Costco and they have contracts with American Express, would the cardmember keep the same date of 2002 or would they get the 2012 membership date if approved for a Blue Cash?

Money Card - yes, but you have to call and ask for the backdate.

I was an authorized user on sister's Costco card. I then applied and received Plat and requested backdating, they obliged.
