how much would i have to pay?
Title: Re: Split Amex Plat
Post by: Muscatini on August 19, 2008, 11:51:50 AM
about 140 or if you have 2 other guys split it any way you'd like...
basically 450+175 = 625 of which I'll pay 200 so the other 3 pple would split the rest.

Title: Splitting AMEX Platinum
Post by: Eli on February 25, 2009, 10:22:24 PM

I am currently researching the possibility of getting an AMEX Platinum card. The annual fee is high but I like the option of getting into Airport Lounges. Annual fee is currently $450 for the personal card and it's an additional $175 for another 3 cards. The total comes out to $625 for 4 cards which is about $155 each. Since it is my credit and my responsibility, I would want at least $200 for the annual fee, and obviously, I would not let you use the card whatsoever for purchases. It would be strictly for getting Platinum benefits.

I'm still not sure if I want to do this, but I am "testing the waters" here to see if there is an interest. So, if you are interested in splitting AMEX Platinum and getting yourself Platinum Benefits for $200 or a little more per year, kindly let me know.
Title: Re: Splitting AMEX Platinum
Post by: Eli on March 01, 2009, 07:43:52 PM
Sorry for bumping this topic. I just was wondering if anyone was interested still in splitting AMEX Platinum. I would possibly do it for a month at a time (depending on AMEX's rules) if you have a few flights and need Platinum for a short while to get into lounges, maybe we could work out a price.

Lemme know.

Why dont you just downgrade it to the green card?
Title: Re: Splitting AMEX Platinum

Title: Re: Splitting AMEX Platinum
Post by: gozalim on March 11, 2009, 06:17:58 PM
they will let you, and it shouldn't affect your score (it's the same card/credit line, just different 'benefits')

actually, sinceit isn't a defined line of credit, i wonder what it does to your credit in the first place? does anyone know?

would like to join as a card member on someone's account (obviously you'll know who i am, no credit issues here :)

Just open your own account...even if the card is closed it still works!
Title: Re: would like to split amex PLAT plz msg me
Post by: Yordai Dooma on August 30, 2009, 06:57:50 PM
If i open and close the card...will is still have to pay the annual fee? Meaning, for the starwood amex, if you close the card when you are charged the annual fee, they refund the $45.

If i open it and then close it a few days after i get it, do they charge it prorated?
Title: Re: would like to split amex PLAT plz msg me
Post by: gozalim on August 30, 2009, 11:32:05 PM
from experience, the platinum charge does get prorated.

however there are some reports that a canceled card won't work (supposedly they swipe at the door).

[one theoretical solution would be to get plat, downgrade to green ($95/year), [never activate the new card] and the old plat (same # as active green) will still work/show up as active]
Title: Re: would like to split amex PLAT plz msg me
Post by: Dan on August 31, 2009, 01:14:00 AM
If you cancel any card within 30 days of the annual fee showing up on the statement you will get a full refund.

I've heard now from a few people that have had their cancelled card swiped and it still worked.  Personally my card is active so I can't personally confirm or deny.

It may be worth spending the $1,000 on the card to get the 25,000 MR points and then canceling and paying the pro-rated annual fee for however long it took spend the $1,000 and get the points.

Careful, some Plats (like mine) only give the main card holder Priority card.

As said on a different post, I can arrange Star alliance gold + Skyteam Gold

Its a big headache, so lets hear what its worth for you.

Not sure what you're talking about, but all US issued AMEX Plat cards definitely have lounge access.

And I'm not sure what the moral difference is whether the card is downgraded or canceled?

Just open your own AMEX Plat (http://www.dansdeals.com/go/amexplat/), get the 25K miles, and close it.
Clear your cookies/cache if you don't see the offer.
Title: Re: Splitting AMEX Plat
Post by: MarkS on June 15, 2010, 01:39:06 AM
I opened this card and I'm waiting for the points to post so I can cancel it. I've seen mentioned that instead of canceling it's better to downgrade it to a free card. I called Amex and they said bec it's a charge card, the only card it can be downgraded to is the gold.    so I want to know:    Is it necesary to downgrade (and avoid closing) to still get lounge access? If yes, what can it be downgraded to?

100K was never a public offer.

25K is the best I've ever seen for a public offer.

Title: Re: Splitting AMEX Plat
Post by: MarkS on June 16, 2010, 01:07:46 PM
you can sign up, get the card, the points will post at around 59 days, and then cancel right away. You are left with a cancelled card (lounge access) signup bonus, and no fee paid.  In the event that the points dont post by 60 days and the $450 is due, you can cancel before 90  days and only pay prorated fees
Title: Re: Splitting AMEX Plat
Post by: Dan on June 16, 2010, 01:10:11 PM

Haven't seen a first year free in many years.
If you signup, spend $1,000, get the 25K miles and then cancel after say 3 months, you will get a 75% refund of the annual fee so you'll only pay $111.
If you cancel within a month of getting the statement with the annual fee you won't have to pay the annual fee at all.

They won't deduct the 25K after canceling.  If you have other AMEX Charge cards then you can leave them without worry.

You can even leave those 25K points, they won't take them away once they're earned.
As long as you have a valid Charge card open your points are safe.

If you have no other valid cards when you close the plat they close the MR account with it. If you have another valid card you are good to go.

FYI

In December I got a platinum and canceled w/in 30 days and got the full refund.

I had 2 lounge experiences: During the 30 days that my card was still active I got denied entry into the united rcc in chicago. They have a sign that they don't take it anymore. After I had canceled it, I got in to the China Airlines lounge with my wife (i was flying cathay pacific in the same terminal). They just swiped it and wrote down something and let me in.

It never worked with United and quite frankly I don't understand how it worked in...

The reason for the sign in ORD is because there used to be a CO PC in ORD but it was swallowed by the UA RCC's there which don't take it.

It should only work at AA, CO, DL, and AMEX branded lounges.

I don't think that is very ethical. I think it is better to ask someone to guest you in than steal your way in.

Neither method is terribly ethical.

But let me ask you this, what if you pay the $450 for the AMEX for the year and get the 25K miles and close it after the year.
Is it wrong to use it then?  Does it say somewhere that once you cancel the card you're not allowed to access the lounges? No.  All it say is that with the card you can access lounges (at least until the card's 4 year expiration date.

Definitely no possibility of C"H as nobody even knows its canceled as opposed to panhandling at the entrance of the lounge for free entry which is likely to offend many people.

Personally I enjoy lounges enough to have invested in a lifetime membership years ago, but for everyone else they'll have to decide for themselves...

Is there any official or unofficial number of Amex cards one can safely have open at the same time? I'm at 4 right now. Just wondering what'll happen if I get the plat too (the DD way..).

I've had Amex reps tell me that I can't have more than 4, therfore they have to deny my application.

i currently have more than 4...

Is it possible to get away with doing this?

Upgrade my current Delta Gold Amex to Amex Plat
Cancel after a month or so (pay the prorated charge)
Revert back to Delta Gold (I know skypesos are worthless) or downgrade to anoth Amex

Use the cancelled Amex Plat for lounges.

Not asking about the ethical-ness of this. Just asking, hypothetically, would one be able to pull it off?

I don't think they'll let you upgrade the delta card to the amex plat.
You can always just apply for the amex plat  (http://www.dansdeals.com/go/amexplat/)and cancel within 30 days though.

If you cancel within 30 days you will not get the points. Better wait till you get the points and then get a prorated charge.

My experience in signing up for (and canceling) this card:
It takes 4-6 weeks from the eligible spend to receive points. In my case, bec. my 1st order was from the mint and it got backordered, they were billing me for the $450 waay before I got the points. On the first bill they had the charge for fee, and I called and said I'm considering cancelling so I don't want to have to pay the fee only to have it refunded in a few days when I cancel. They told me that the date it 'says' my bill is due is not the 'real' date it is owed by and as long as I pay within 30 days of due date there would be no problems. When those 30 days were ending and points still didn't post I had to pay the full fee and I figured I would get a prorated refund. When I finally got my points and called to cancel they said if I would have called one day earlier (Within 60 days of bill due date) I would have gotten a full refund but that now they would withold $75 of my payment and refund the rest. A quick chat with a supervisor took care of that and I got a full refund!!

Considering that anyone can sign up, spend $1,000, get the 50K points, and cancel the card and get back most of (or the entire) annual fee.  It seems more of a favor to other people for 4 years of lounge access.

So here is what I had in mind:
1 guy (say Mr. Platinum) applies for the card with 3 additional cards under Mr. A, Mr. B, and Mr. C.
Once approved and the cards delivered to Mr. Platinum’s residence, he cancels the additional cards and sends them to Mr. A,B and C for 100$ each.
Mr. A,B and C earns 4 years of lounge access for 25$ a year. Definitely not bad.
After the points post, Mr. Platinum decides whether he wants to keep the card (then he is really Mr. Platinum  :D) or to cancel  it and try to get his annual fee, or some of it back.
Now who’s in?

I wanna be Mr. Platinum (in real life) ;)

My terms for sharing would be that I give them a real (albeit canceled) card with their name on it in return for $50. I make no representation about which lounges they can enter and for how long (though it seems like 4 years of free entry to the lounges listed on the main site is what has worked thus far).

Does this sound fair?

How do people ensure that their added users (i.e. someone pays MR. A $200/year for the card) don't go out and rack up $50k in charges on the account?

iirc the minimum limit on an amex plat is $500 and there are ways around this (i.e. global assist cash advances).

as far as I've seen with credit cards covering rental insurance, they only cover if you pay for the rental insurance with the credit card. on that note i believe that credit cards (very few exceptions) only cover collision not liability But what you can find is that some credit cards will cover collision as a primary insurance with no deductible or going after your personal car insurance.

Amex never "said" that you can use the card even after you cancel it. Why not call them up and ask them if you think thats what they will say? Im not saying its correct or incorrect to use it, nor am i looking to debate it (we did that several months ago in one of the older threads). All i am saying is that Amex never said any such thing. The fact that it works is likely a glitch or they choose to overlook it. Perhaps their cheshbon is similar to that of a sign up bonus on a cc. Or a 30 day trial of some software or program with a free gift...offer a perk to get you to sign up. If you cancel, you keep the perk. The rationale is that you may sign up and decide you like it.
I do have 2 amex platinums (1 for the wife) and do not plan on canceling them for the first year. When i do cancel it, i will discuss the matter with my Rov. I will also not post here what my Rov says as each person who believes it is even a shaila should ask their own Rov.

min. limit $200. or you can block all charges

Effectively limiting spend to $0, which is what I said.

bc if u can't add someone you don't know (u don't have their ssn) u won't be selling cancelled cards. although u can cancel and use your own card, it would definitely save it from going totally out of hand (unless, of course they have no idea what's goin on)
anyway, it was just a thought..

Same here. They claim it's now required by law. I've added AU's several different time for different AMEX flavored  cards since Dec. and they are now always asking for the SSN, plus B-day and physical address.

must have all 6 to do it.

What are you talking about?

I just pulled that up from my Amex account's "Account Management" section. It could be I'm grandfathered in at $175 for three.

Either way, I've always added AUs over the phone, and I've never ended up providing an SSN or paying a fee (bli ayin hara).

Post by: gmant on March 28, 2018, 11:20:09 AM
Alright, potentially reversing this now- I have 1 slot available on a plat card. Looking for $100 + a refundable deposit of whatever the minimum spend I can lower the auth user cards to. I believe this is $200. So you'll get all the authorized user benefits for ~1 year (11.5 months currently), you'll pay me $300 now, and at the end of the year (assuming you haven't spent anything on the card and we close your auth user account) I'll send you back your $200.  I will likely keep this past the 1 year mark, so if you'd like to have this for a longer period of time this might be helpful for you (you won't have to pay an additional deposit the following year, I'll just keep the original $200, and each year will cost you $100). Please msg me if you have interest, or have suggestions on how this might work better than what I wrote above.

Post by: gmant on March 29, 2018, 08:20:58 AM
Probably missing something, but:

Hilton Gold Status (gets you upgrades/lounge access pretty frequently)
SPG/Marriott Gold Status- same as above, less likely to get lounge access, but some extra perks
Fee credit for Gobal Entry or TSA precheck
Hertz 5 Star status (comes with a 4-hour grace period, which is nice)
Some SoulCycle benefits
Access to Fine Hotels and Resorts- for vacations, sometimes great deals on hotels- pay same price, get a free upgrade, $100 food credit, etc etc
Access to the Centurion Lounges
priority pass
Eurostar (train) premier lounges (probably something youíll never use, but who knows. Paris is the main one.
Airspace Lounges (several, but significant one is JFK T5)
Delta Sky club access, when you fly delta
Virgin Australia Lounges when you fly Virgin.

Title: Re: Splitting AMEX Plat
Post by: gmant on March 29, 2018, 10:17:34 PM
Interesting, didn't know that. Has that been consistently seen? I also assume it breaks if a single AU charges anything (like Global Entry for example), even if it gets reimbursed? And any experiences with Centurion Lounges, where they do swipe the card even if they don't end up charging it?

is there a list where we can see the share benefits of the primary vs secondary.  Also will there be a credit check on the additional users?

will each additional user have their own rewards account and statement? 

What if the additional user doesn't pay their bill -- will the primary account holder credit get hit?   how about vice versa -- if the primary account holder doesn't pay the bill, will all the additional user's credit get affected?

Thanks so much!

To the best of my knowledge:

1. Will there be a credit check on the additional users? NO

2.  Will each additional user have their own rewards account and statement? NO (and any AU should not be spending on this card anyway!)

3. What if the additional user doesn't pay their bill -- will the primary account holder credit get hit?   how about vice versa -- if the primary account holder doesn't pay the bill, will all the additional user's credit get affected? ONLY THE CREDIT OF THE AH IS AT RISK.

You can reduce the CL to as low as $200. Then, you can choose to risk that or have them give you a $200 refundable deposit.

Does Amex allow CL $0 so an AU can only use for lounge access and benefits only?
You can freeze the card.

Btw: You need a social (AFAIK) to remain an AU on this card.

So basically be careful when being added to someone's card here on the forum as you don't want to be messed over with your credit score/history.

  Just curious when using the global entry application fee credit do you give them your address or you tell them to put in their own address the person that bought your global entry fee application?

just to clarify what advantages does the authorized user get aside for priority pass, centurion lounge, Delta sky club, does he get status with car rentals and status with hotels?
 And the GE.

 Also with priority pass one would get his own card with his name on it?

Do au's reports get added to account holder?
And how would the au's record be added to the cardholders account even if we don't supply a SS and address? First and last name alone would pull up a credit report?

I have spoken with Amex you need to supply a SS reporting starts from when AU is added and only positive can be reported on you not negatives Bec you are not financially responsible for the account

There was a time with amex when you were able to be added without your ss #, seems as of lately in order to be added you need a valid ss on the card and then you can use the card.
 You can create additional AU but the card won't be active until you supply the SS #.

Card you can call and see if they'll expedite it for you. PP is harder as you have to get ahold of PP between the time amex tells them to give you one and PP sends it out.
At least that's what chase told me.

I know they would only expedite it with the ss being attached to the card, not going to give anyone a ss, would have a card added and then add on my own by calling and giving the ss.
  Have to see how it's going to work to get the card expedited that way I can work on the pp.
