New Round of offers sent out – expires 2/21 – Gold has targeted me, I’d assume Platinum and Green will come soon.

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 6 American Express cards, and pay over $1200 a year in annual fees?! I keep on keeping my cards year after year because of the points I earn outside of my normal spending.

I earn 55k per card, per year on referrals, and now have the opportunity to earn another 50k points by adding authorized users. The crazy thing is the same 4 people could be authorized users on each of the 3 cards. Total cost…zero.

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.

Gold and Platinum 5k Membership Rewards for each authorized user, up to 4, after they spend $500 by Feb 28th, 2021.

This is the exact same offer I received for adding users to my Gold card last year. Interestingly enough, this was targeted to my Platinum. I’ve also received 2500 per AU on my Amex Green

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, up to 5 cards. Depending on your situation it could make sense to add AUs either way.

I picked up an Amex Green last year when it was rebranded – I received this authorized user bonus earlier in the year

In a little over 6 months of holding the card I just received my first authorized user offer.

  • Earn 2500 points for each authorized user
    • must spend $500 in 3 months
  • Maxes out at 10k bonus points
  • You can add AUs fee free
