Planning my Amex Offers portfolio

In my post “Awesome Amex Offers and how to get them,” I argued that the way to get the best Amex Offers is to get every type of Amex card (Membership Rewards vs. Other; Personal vs. Business; etc.) and to get lots of those cards by adding lots of authorized users.  I intended to follow my own advice, but I dragged my heels for a while.  Then came the amazing Amazon offer: Spend $50 or…
