From past years’ experience this should still work with 3rd party AMEX cards like those from Citi, however if for whatever reason you do not get credit automatically getting it manually will be extremely difficult. With AMEX issued cards it’s easy to be credited manually.
This should also work with primary and secondary cards directly from AMEX, but not with secondary cards from 3rd party issuers like Citi. Of course each card must be registered separately but you are able to use the same email address. An American Express card can have up to 99 additional users though people have reported going through a financial review for adding too many additional cardholders to their account.
There’s still time to signup for additional cards (and add additional users to each of those cards) to take advantage of this promotion.
