American Express is sending out a targeted mailer for bonus points when adding authorized users. We have one report of the following offer: earn 5,000 Membership Rewards points for each additional card member after they spend $500 in eligible purchases in their first 3 months, up to 20,000 bonus points. This offer was received on a Premier Rewards Gold card, though it’s certainly possible that mailers are going out for other cards.

The Deal

  • Targeted bonuses for up to 20,000 Membership Rewards points for adding authorized users – 5K per additional card member after they make $500 in eligible purchases
  • No link as this is a targeted mailer

Quick Thoughts

This one is targeted, but it is a good reminder to open your mailers rather than throwing them out right away as you may find a valuable offer inside. This one amounts to 10x on the $500 spend per additional cardmember, which is a great return on spend.

These types of promotions also sometimes pop up when logging in to your account, so keep an eye out for a pop-up when logging in. While the AU account will initially add an account to your additional cardmember’s 5/24 count, it is usually possible to successfully make a case with a reconsideration rep if it is only AU accounts keeping you over 5/24 (provided the AU is not financially repsonsible for repayment of the account). Still, it’s worth keeping in mind that new accounts like this can add to your total.

I tried to call for matching this offer, but the rep persisted in asking me the POID number. Are there any POID numbers showing on this offer letter?
