Amex Authorized User Bonuses

American Express is once again offering generous bonuses for adding authorized users to credit card accounts. These offers are sent by mail, email or show up online when you log into your accounts. Let’s take a look at the offers.

Updated 9/2/21 with new offers being sent out

Ryan was offered this one while on the phone with Amex about downgrading a different card.  It may be worth calling / chatting to see if you can get something similar.

Hilton Amex

Add an additional authorized user and you can earn 5,000 Hilton Honors Bonus Points after they spend $500 on eligible purchases on their card in the first six months.

Amex Everyday Card

Add an additional user to your account and you will earn 10,000 Membership Rewards points when they spend $500 on their new card within the first 6 months.

There is no fee to add an additional card on this account.

Key Terms

  • Points will be posted to the Basic Card Member’s account within 8–12 weeks after an Additional Card Member makes required purchases.
  • Your purchases as the Basic Card Member will not count toward the $500 spend requirement.
  • The Additional Card Member’s Social Security Number and Date of Birth are not required to submit this request. However, this information must be provided by you or the Additional Card Member within 60 days after the Card is issued, or the Additional Card will be canceled.
  • Maximum of one 10K/20K bonus per account.

Conclusion

These are great offers for adding just one authorized user to your account. It works out t0 10X Membership Rewards on the Platinum Card or 20X for the Delta Reserve and Everyday cards.

For cards such as the Platinum or Delta Reserve you should probably got for the free additional user cards, unless they really need some of the extra benefits. Remember that adding an Authorized User will count against their Chase 5/24 count as long as the card is open.

I would suggest completing spending requirement with organic spend. American Express has been getting much tougher on bonuses and rewards earned with cash equivalent purchases.

Please let us know if you were targeted for these offers, or any similar ones.

  1. Any links to American Express Everyday card offer? All I see when I log in to my account is 10K for referring a new (primary) card holder

      • Thanks Mark! You probably meant gold card, not green?
        And if I still go for the Platinum one – I guess I’ll receive the same 20k bonus regardless whether I add 1 user or 3, right?

    • I got exactly the same offer but it’s not a hassle to do so I went for it. 5k bonus plus the 1k on spend, ain’t great but better than nothing.

  2. I received the offer but my links have never worked for the additional 20k bonus. Has this happened to anyone else?

    • right – I was wondering if there is any way to verify that the offer has been established? I called, but they were unable to confirm. He said to call back in 2-3 weeks. No ticket# or any way to track the conversation even…
