Two out of Three Ain't Bad?

About a year and a half ago, my wife and I put a security freeze on our credit reports. We have PINs for two of the bureaus...

We are both missing PINs for Equifax, which seems really odd. My documentation shows that they had our old address at the time of the freeze, but that I successfully updated that information a couple of months later. It's entirely possible I lost those PINs, but it's beginning to seem more likely to me that they were sent to that old address. I would like to temporarily lift the freeze so I can get a different credit card (American Express; my hatred of all things Chase is a grand story for another time). Are two of the three credit bureaus enough to satisfy AmEx, or am I going to have to go through the hoops to get a new PIN from Equifax?
