Amex Authorized User Bonuses

American Express often has targeted offers for adding authorized user cards to your account. Right now there’s two such bonuses available, one for the Premier Rewards Gold card and the other for Blue Cash Everyday. You need to log in to see if you’re targeted.

The Offers

Premier Rewards Gold Card – 5,000 MR Bonus

  • Get a bonus 5,000 Amex Membership Rewards points when you add an authorized user to your Premier Rewards Gold card and spend $500 within 3 months
  • Link to Offer

Blue Cash Everyday Card – $25 Bonus

  • Get a $25 Statement Credit when you add an authorized user to your Blue Cash Everyday account and spend $250 within 3 months
  • Link to Offer


A nice added bonus for your card with an easy spend requirement. You also get an extra card for Amex offers.

Just keep in mind that you need a SSN to add an authorized user card it counts towards the Chase 5/24 rule.

  1. I have the offer on all my Amex Reward Gold Cards and all my Blue everyday cards. Thanks. This is a great deal. Thanks for the heads up. I added my grandpa who is 91 years old as the AU. He is totally OK with it because he doesn’t own any property or use CC.

  2. My wife has this offer but I haven’t had this card. If she has me as an AU, that will prevent me from getting the sign-up bonus later if I get my own card?

  3. Can’t add wifey — not worth it because of Chase 5/24.

    Can’t add kids — Amex requires AUs to be at least 15yo.

    That’s what I like about Chase… I can add my toddler as an AU — even on my Ink business cards!
