It’s all about the points, and Amex gets it. Whether it be Amex Offers, great welcome bonuses, category bonuses, and now bonuses for adding authorized users with low spend requirements, Amex continues to leverage their valuable Membership Rewards to retain brand loyalty. Take me for example, I have 5 American Express cards, and pay over $1200 a year in annual fees? I keep, keeping my cards year after year.
I’m point obsessed, and earning 55k per card, per year on referrals, and now 20k on both my Amex Platinum and Amex Gold to add authorized users gives me even more reason to keep them in my wallet. Let’s take a look at this new offer I was targeted to receive, and why it may make sense for you to participate if targeted as well.
5k Membership Rewards for each authorized user, up to 4, after they spend $500 by July 14th.
This is a no brainer for me, and is the exact same offer I received for adding users to my Gold card a little while back.
Gold and Platinum authorized users count towards the bonus
Note that if you add any Platinum card members they will enjoy Platinum benefits and 3 users cost $175, then $175 per each AU starting with the 4th. Gold AUs are free. Depending on your situation it could make sense to add AUs either way.
If you don’t have an American Express Platinum card you can read our 10 reasons why its $550 annual fee makes sense for us to pay.
