16 or so on my parent's AmEx Gold acct. A good accent against my black Members Only jacket..... :rolleyes:

I didn't get my own until my early 30's as my current BCP says member since '03. Albeit the one in 03 may have been a corporate card...not sure if those tie in.

Had Green Corporate cards through two different employers in the mid- to late-1990's (I was in my 30's). Wasn't until I received my BCP a little less than two years ago that I had one that I actually applied for. I was 53 then. Guess I'm a late bloomer.
