changing one Amex Express for another
I pay $150.00 a year for my Skymiles Amex Express card. Is there a way I can change to another Amex Express card and close this one without affecting my credit score?

Amex offers back dating, which is a unique service where they set the date of any new cards to the year you first got an Amex.  This way, your credit will not be hurt by a shortened credit history.  For best results in this, open the new account in January, so the backdating would be January of whatever year you first got an Amex.

You will still have to get approved though, which will mean a credit inquiry, and a few points off your score.
