With Amex backdating, the harm and possible benefits of opening and closing Amex are great. Day after my wife finally got backdated back to 1995 from 2011 member date, had her apply to 2 Amex. She is not sure she loves the cards, but we can always close and open different ones. Each closed one wil continue to help her aaoa. Each new one does too. An inquiry barely hurts and effects are short lived. Not even sure new Amex counts as new account.
