5.000 Bonus AMEX Points For Adding An Additional User Onto Your Premier Rewards Gold Card And Spending $500

If you add a free additional user to your Premier Rewards Gold Card from American Express via the link above and spend $500 on the new additional card within 3 months you will get 5,000 bonus AMEX point.

You can add up to 5 additional users onto this card for free. There is a limit of 1 5K point bonus per primary card account.

The terms state that the bonus points can take 8-12 weeks to post, though typically they post much quicker than that.

Additional AMEX cards also qualify for AMEX Offers.

Additional Card Members must be at least 15 years of age. You are able to add yourself, a family member, or a friend as an additional user.

A social security number is required for this offer. There is no hard credit pull for adding an additional user.

However the account will show up on their credit report, which means that spending on the card can help or hurt their credit score depending on your credit utilization and payments.

An additional user card will also count against the user with Chase, which limits approvals for many of their cards if you have had more than 5 new accounts in the past 24 months. It is possible to appeal that decision based on it being an authorized user account if you say that you don’t use it and aren’t responsible for payment on the card, but some have been turned down because of that approval guideline. It is possible to have the additional user account removed from the credit report by closing it and requesting removal from the bank and/or all 3 credit bureaus.

I got the same message as Dovid. When I clicked on the link, the Amex website did not list my gold card and I had to register it separately. That is when I got “We are sorry, you are not able to apply for an Additional Card online. Please call the number on the back of your Card if you have additional inquiries.”

Does the bonus points apply to only adding one additional user or can you add more than one and get more bonus points?

@Kevin “There is a limit of 1 bonus per primary card account.”

@Dan – Thanks!

Mark

I called Amex and they said this promo is not true. They said there is no such promotion available

I already have 5 free additional users, I believe the sixth cost money, Is that true? And would that apply for this promo as well?

Sam

Worked perfectly, thanks!

Jacob

If you put yourself as the AU, is that still considered a new account vis-a-vis 5/24, even though it’s the same person as the pch?

Mark

@Dan:
I put it in and the link worked, but there was no mention of the bonus? Where do you see that?

Link?

I don’t see your link to this offer only to sign up for the credit card as a new user

ramsey

Dan can I put you as an additional user, my wife is sick of me doing this to her?

Uri

Is the SSN required for the authorized user or the account holder? I previously had an authorized user with Chase that did not have an SSN at all, are AMEX different?

midwest

For those having trouble you may want to login to amex first and then click on link. That worked for me Chrome

JoeB

Will this work for Business Gold Rewards Card?

Amex offered me 10k points to link my PRG to their Pay Over Time program. Is there a catch that I’m missing?

mo

just call up and cancel one cardholder, and then you can add one for free.

RZ

I am able to add, however no mention of the 5,000 points. Will the points be awarded under the link?
