Title: 10k MR for adding additional AMEX card
Post by: bubbles on August 07, 2011, 09:56:15 PM
Add an additional card to any American Express by 12/31/11 and get 10,000 membership rewards points. bonus id 5721 and you get 10,000 points for every card you add!!
you have to call and add the person thru the rewards department so they can give you the points.
Small update: Minimum age is 16, SS# and DOB is required.
Additional user is required to make 1 purchase before the 10k points will be posted.


Couldn't find this on the site yet. From what I'm hearing you might have to call up a couple of times to get it seeing as its a targeted offer.

I assume this is only for MR cards... question would be only charge cards or also blue

Don't know how worth it this is. Let's say you have him sign up for the platinum, the best card out there, he probably will no longer be able to get the 100K bonus, so all in all you are loosing miles. If he is already willing to sign up for you, have him sing up w/o that offer and let him give you his 100K  ;D.

A. You can use 16-yr olds who can't apply for their own cc's.

B. One person can be an Authorized User on several ppl's acct. Besides getting his own joining bonuses for acct's he owns.

Generally Amex is generous in such situations. And if they don't credit you the first time you calL, you can always call again.

I think that's for cards that don't ask for SSN so you can just fabricate. And considering I get 10K for each kid, I only need 100. But you're forgetting a person can be an AU for two ppl, or for a 100. I'm sure we can chap some guys around....

Not Amex, but I think with some banks you don't need to give a Social SN for an AU. So it's just a question of making up a name

Well IDK if there's a way to get the MR into AAdvantage they have a great million-miler status. Otherwise I'm sure there are other tings to do with unlimited miles. But obviously there's some kind of limit. We know it's more than 1, thanks to dangster. Ill call them soon and try to figure out.

You can't really get MR into AA at any decent ratio (via SPG it's less than 2:1).

Title: Re: 10k MR for adding additional AMEX card
Post by: PlatinumGuy on August 08, 2011, 02:34:31 PM
@pianodule we're missing lots of info. Definitely sounds like it'll work - the same people can be AU on two accounts for sure (what if your son is also making purchases for your business?), the question is if this bonus applies to all the dif acct's.

@ashero, if I remember correctly it's 3:1 that way... but then again, maybe you cna get these miles in the SPG card?

@nitantnel - Amex MR lets you transfer your MR to various Frequent flyer programs, although you don't always get Status miles

It's 3:1 but you get 25% bonus for SPG > AA (20k increments), so effectively .416 AA per 1 Amex, hence less than 2:1 (but more than 3:1).

Have the PR Gold and Biz Gold cards.  Called MR and got a rep that said I'd need to call CS to add the AU.  She also said they'd only apply the bonus code if I was targeted.  Might try again but 0 for 1 so far.

Thanks! For the record, I have an amex blue sky and was approved for this. I don't know if I can still convert these to miles but gotta say some 50k MR is a good start.

On a side, Amex also has the international FX wire offer where they give 30k MR for signing up and doing a first transaction. If you wire money to friends and family, they have not so competitive exchange rates but a 1000$ transaction a 2% difference is no big deal, given their excellent service.
http://www262.americanexpress.com/business-credit-cards/business-solutions/fx-international-payments

This is a nice way to stack up enough points to convert into a free trip to Isarel or India without a credit inquiry (assuming you have an amex card, of course).

You'd increase your chances of getting the $175 back if you cancelled your entire account, if that's an option.

Also, you could just call AMEX and see if their policy for refunding AU charges is the same as for annual fees...

Hmm I think I might end up having to keep the card as they are currently reporting it as my old oldest card... I am looking at downgrading to the Green card, does anyone know off hand what the charge is for adding AU's to the Green card? Even at $175 though thats ~$0.006 per MR point so it would make sense in any case, correct?

AFAIK, it does not matter which AMEX card was opened first. As long as you maintain ANY amex, your credit report will reflect the card open as being opened on the date of your original card.

Yup but being as the Platinum is my sole AMEX card I have to downgrade it. I will probably downgrade it to the Green card as then I can transfer points still.

So the Green card lets you add 5 AU's for a $30 fee. Would I be better off downgrading my Platinum to Green and then adding AU's so I don't have to have them refund the $175 or $145 ($175 - $30)?

Looking through the thread it seems that this is for all MR cards so that should include the Green correct?

Theoretically, yes. But getting them to add the promotion to the Green Card may be a trick, though...

Ah ok, in that case I will just add them as AU's on the Platinum and deal with it later.

I just call the rewards department and tell them I would like to add 3 AU's through the 10k promotion?

BTW Thanks for all the help.

I haven't tried to do it on mine yet, but, I would probably have them (MR) add the promotion to the account, and then (if MR can even do it at all) have them add the AU's. Most likely, though, you'll have to have some other dept in AMEX add the AU's.

Report back with your progress!

Does adding additional card holders have any affect whatsoever on the credit of the additional cardholders.

Also, when I cancel the card does it show that I cancelled the other cards too causing more cancellations on my report?

In short, is there anything to lose by adding additional cardholders????

P.S. She did mention that I can add Gold cards as AU's of my Platinum at a fee of $45 for 5 cards and they would also qualify for the promotion, I didn't bother as I will be downgrading to Green and will try to get the $175 refunded in any case and this way the AU's now have a Platinum card for lounge access etc but if anyone has alot of people whose SSN's they can use then they can be getting 50k points for $45 or $0.0009/point...

One other point to note here, I know that with amex, since they take the ss#, the credit beurau looks at it as if you are the main cardholder. If that is true, and then I add myself to 10 different peoples accounts (lets just say as a favor) and then they close their accounts, wont that look bad for an AU as well?

There is no maximum (at least that's what I was told). You can add more platinum AU's after the first 3 but they are $175 each. Same with the gold, after the first 5 its $45 each.

Who said anything about adding AU's to every one of the 17 AMEX cards I have? Always act within moderation. Words to live by.

You have 17 active Amex cards?  ???

Did you first have to have 5721 added to your account? Or did you just call and ask for the points?

You mean maximum? 3 on the plat, and I think 5 on the gold.
Is there any fee for adding Gold AU's? Also can you add an AU that already has his/her own Gold card?

You dont want to add AUs. you want to add additional cards to your account. They are two diff processes. AUs need to be credit checked bc they are an AU and its akin to being primary cardholder. Additional cardholders just piggyback off your credit.

Ok, I'm, planning on adding more. had already added the same two au's on gold cards  in mine and spouses account. One csr said she was adding points right away, the other didnt say that. If I do it like the above poster I could add 23 users on all the cards gold/plat in our accounts. Somehow I'm uncomfortable doing that, tafasta meruba.

i added the same 5 ppl to two of my golds one of my plats and one of the mrs's golds...was on the phone for almost 2 hours but the csr knew what i was doing and kept saying "wow you really know how to maximize your pts!" 2 hours for 200k pts is well worth it...will see if it triggers an F/R but i dont have anything to hide

but for business she wouldnt do it...so i am not sure bus is included.
Isnt it $175 per additional AU after 3 why is it worth it to add them for 10,000 MR

So what did you do paid $45 or paid $175 and will try to get a refund

I personally did the $175 as I would like the platinum cards for the people I added. After the points post I will downgrade my card to Green and the new AU's will downgrade as well and then I will ask for a refund.

Although if we are able to add without an SSN, I should be able to call up and add 5 Gold AU's or random names as they don't have the SSN to make sure they are real... no?

You might need to give them SSNs when activating the cards upon receiving them, if you didn't already give the SSNs.

Unless the level of the pull is weaker if these cases - something I have yet to hear of.

If they dont get an SS#, there isnt ANY effect on the credit. If they do, there MAY be, but even so, it likely wouldnt be a pull.

that's not true.  there is no pull, but there is definitely a effect on the credit, because it's added as a new account on their credit.   depending on your credit score/report relative to theirs, is what will determing how it effects them.

Maybe you need to reread what I wrote.

First, if they do not get a SS#, it will not be showing up on your credit report, as they have no way of tying the additional card account to a member's credit without the SS# (or at the very least an address).

Second, see bold above. "May be" means--at least where I come from--that there is a possibility it will affect the credit report. If they report it, it'll show up as a new account. If they don't report it, it won't.

However, in BOTH cases, it will not result in a hard pull.

Clear enough?

So if one was to give an SSN then when you remove them as an AU it would remove the account from there Credit Report and there Credit status would return to how it was?

I am assuming that if you remove said person as an AU then the AMEX account will just drop off their Credit Report as if it never was there as they were not a "Responsible Party" correct?

Theoretically? Probably. (on an additional cardmember, NOT AU)
I still haven't been able to get a rep who can diffrentiate between an AU and Additional Cardmember. They keep telling me there are only 2 types, Joint Cardholders and Authorized Users which are sometimes called Additional Cardholders...

yes, i'm sure john smith without a dob, ss or address would be a good one.  you should try that, see if they let you put it on.   but when your name is aaron jakobovitz and your date of birth is 3.14.85 and "coincidentally" they have in their files a aaron jakobovitz that has cards from them with the exact same dob, it's not very hard for them to do the math; with or without an address.   like i said, i've seen it happen; on just a dob.      now, you could keep talking (as it seems you're wont to do), but that's all it is; i'm telling you a fact.

Just have a reg CSR add the additional cardmembers and *then after spending the $1*, call up MR a couple days later and say you want the points for those cards as well.

As long as you get the 10k for the other ones you signed up for, you should be able to convince an MR rep to give you for the second card as well.

Was Planning to lay low until I get some cards and then call. However he was going on and on that there is misinformation being spread by CSR and he will note the account for ALL the cards that I signed up for. Let's wait and see.

The trouble is I have a plat card that I need to cancel soon to avoid the fee . Was going to add  5 Gold AUs to the Plat . I'm not adding people if it might  turn into a 6-8 week complicated process. Not worth the $

Some encouragement for those who don't get it on the first call:
I had to call MR three times - All in the space of half hour.
First call: As soon as the rep heard me talk about the 10K for additional cardholders, she told me that it is only available for targeted accounts.
So I hung up and immediately called again.
Second call:
The rep had no idea what I was talking about. Spend 5 minutes looking up offer code 5721, and came back saying that it must be something cardmember services deals with, so he transferred me to that department. The rep from that department had no idea what I was talking about, so looked it up for 5 minutes and came back aplogising that she couldn't help me.
So I hung up and immediately called again.
Third call:
As soon as the rep heard me talk about the 10K for additional cardholders, she says "sure, I can help you with that!" She didn't even ask me for the offer code 5721. She notated my account, and she then transferred me to cardmember services to add the additionals. When the cardmember services rep heard that I want to add 5 additionals, she says, "this must be for the 10K offer for additional cardholders, right?" She was more than happy to help, and I did not need to supply SSN's.

Was Planning to lay low until I get some cards and then call. However he was going on and on that there is misinformation being spread by CSR and he will note the account for ALL the cards that I signed up for. Let's wait and see.

The trouble is I have a plat card that I need to cancel soon to avoid the fee . Was going to add  5 Gold AUs to the Plat . I'm not adding people if it might  turn into a 6-8 week complicated process. Not worth the $

So he basically said he notated that you would get 10k for each AU you added?

Some encouragement for those who don't get it on the first call:
I had to call MR three times - All in the space of half hour.
First call: As soon as the rep heard me talk about the 10K for additional cardholders, she told me that it is only available for targeted accounts.
So I hung up and immediately called again.
Second call:
The rep had no idea what I was talking about. Spend 5 minutes looking up offer code 5721, and came back saying that it must be something cardmember services deals with, so he transferred me to that department. The rep from that department had no idea what I was talking about, so looked it up for 5 minutes and came back aplogising that she couldn't help me.
So I hung up and immediately called again.
Third call:
As soon as the rep heard me talk about the 10K for additional cardholders, she says "sure, I can help you with that!" She didn't even ask me for the offer code 5721. She notated my account, and she then transferred me to cardmember services to add the additionals. When the cardmember services rep heard that I want to add 5 additionals, she says, "this must be for the 10K offer for additional cardholders, right?" She was more than happy to help, and I did not need to supply SSN's.
Well done!

Sigh. I called 800-AXP-EARN three times... so far:

Call 1 @ 10:51pm ET: rep said I must be targeted.

Call 2 @ 10:53pm ET: rep said I must be targeted. She mentioned that there were blog sites promoting this.

Call 3 @ 11:08pm ET: rep said he'd transfer me to Cust Serv and they could add the cards for me. He said I would automatically get the 10k points per card. I said, "even if you don't add the offer code?" and he said "yes." When I told the CSR that I wanted to add 5 add'l cards, she asked if it was for the 10k promotion. When I said yes, she said I needed to be targeted and it wasn't showing up on my account. She didn't want to add the AUs only to have me _not_ get the points. She mentioned that blog sites were promoting this, but the sites had it wrong... you need to be targeted AND need to provide SSNs.

Not sure if I'll give up or try again tomorrow.

If you can get a rep to notate your account saying you will get the points after getting the additional cards you should be good to go. Once you get that notation saying you're eligible you're fine.

I think most CSR have no clue of the exact rules of this offer and are shooting from the hip. One CSR told me that *woods works I asked him if he's sure since its not a MR card , he came back and said oh! Your correct. Another one told me I could add up to 10 additional cards because the offer is max 100K MR per card. Another one told me 5 per card.

Let's just hope that when the dust settles we walk out with some nice MR points

If you can get a rep to notate your account saying you will get the points after getting the additional cards you should be good to go. Once you get that notation saying you're eligible you're fine.

I spoke to a rep today, and while looking at my account she said, "did you call yesterday about this?" I said I did but got disconnected. She said that the account was already notated with 5721, but she'd add it again. Then she transferred me to Cust Serv.

Even though my account was notated, the CSR said I needed to follow the steps in the email or snail mail offer. She said that in addition to the offer code, there was a unique code needed to "keep it fair" since the offer was posted on the Internet.

Sigh (again). I'll keep trying.

sorry for the quick post as I am traveling right now and I am sure u guys have posted the answer already!

I have a Platinum card. I already have 3 additional cardholders (and have paid the $175). Can I send a SE with the code & ask to get 3 times 10k MR pts added to my account? I am sure the answers is yes...I just want to confirm. Also, should I bother as I recently got an extra 50k and I have no idea why!!!! I think it may had to do with a very valid and very thorough email I sent them regarding a technical bug on their site (which has been fixed from what I can tell). Hope they don't mess with my 50 trying to add the 30k?  ;D

Do you have any charge cards open with the same account? I'm thinking that maybe if you do then they were manually able to deposit points into your account.

This is exactly what happened with me. But I also bit the bullet, and am hoping for the best. I know my account is notated. So I gambled with $45. We'll see what happens!

I just called AMEX at the number on the back of my Starwood card and tried to add additional cardholders. I was told that the bonus is only for new cards not AUs. I tried both the codes 5854 and 5721. She would not budge. She also told me [as I know] that Starwood cards do not give MR points only Starwood points. Is there another number I should have called. I also have a Gold Delta card and a Green card but I think they charge for AUs. The Green card gives me MR.

I got a MR rep to post 5854 on my starwoods today and sign me up for 7 additional cardmembers at 10K per. I now suspect I will see nada from it in the end and maybe nothing from my "2721 noted" platinum card too...

At least there is no charge for the starwoods added cards...I am sure it will be fun with the charges on the platinum...

I've never heard of 2721, and you should of used 5721 not 5854 since it is for Argentina.

Why do I suspect some of us will have DOZENS of cards mailed to us in the coming days with no points to show for it, unless you are in Argentina or are able to fax proof of offer to MR, "account noted, or not, with 2721 or 5854"...

I got a MR rep to post 5854 on my starwoods today and sign me up for 7 additional cardmembers at 10K per. I now suspect I will see nada from it in the end and maybe nothing from my "2721 noted" platinum card too...

At least there is no charge for the starwoods added cards...I am sure it will be fun with the charges on the platinum...

If my account was notated that I will receive 10k per additional card added, then I'm damn well going to insist I get my points.

I tried 3x with code 5721 for my starwoods and no rep could find the code.
I tried once with 5854 they said I had to open the card with the offer.

1. What is the best number to call?
2. Which offer is the correct one to try?
3. One rep added the 5 additional card holders. If they dont give me the promotion should I cancel them?

Thank you

It seems like last night between 5:00PM - 6:00PM all the agents we instructed not to honor this promotion anymore and tell people it was only targeted the the Argentinian market. Unless you can prove to them that you receive the targeted email and fax it to them there is no way of getting it!!!  Is my assumption correct or has anyone had any luck since then?

I believe that if you were already told you will receive it and your account was noted you WILL get the points because Amex is know for honoring their word and usually does come through.

SlickDeals says it's dead. I think that's the fastest I've ever seen an Amex promo die.

Btw there are people on SlickDeals who have said they read DanDeals and then they go right ahead and post the deals posted here onto SlickDeals.

Just a heads up might want to be more careful.

The poor thing was on the verge of tears because she said that all the MR people were told 3 days ago that they are NOT to tell callers with that code that they can have the points unless they were from Argentina. She said, she wants to honor it but none of the people who called in under that code will have it honored."

That doesn't sound good :(

For whatever reason it seems that the CSR that are reached via phones did not receive the "memo" that this was only for argentineans. It seems though that the ones that are reached via SM were in fact aware that this as only for them and thus denied all requests that were requested via SM...let us hope that those of us that called and get our account noted will have this promo honored.

No I haven't waited 8 weeks. But I called in, spoke already to 3 reps, and got transfered to 3 supervisors, all denied me very strongly, nothing helped me get that. Seems that even after getting the note you still have to be lucky, because all of them know very well not to honor this bonus.

6-8 is the typical answer of a rep that wants you to get of his back. If there would be a chance to get it, I think they would tell you 6-8 weeks. But since they didn't, it seems that I won't get it.

"About 2 weeks ago I signed for offer code 5721 which gives me 10,000 MR for every additional cardholder on my account, I know i got the points for one card holder, I was wondering when I would get the points for the other two?

Thank You in advance,
Regalhome"
which department did you SM to?
anyone else have any luck with this?

please stop with departments, their the same people replying to every department. I checked it out multiple times, I try every time a different department, and I always get the same people. the reason why they made these categories, is just to make it easier to know what you're inquiring about.

I HAVE AN IDEA!

Call one hundred thousand (100,000) one hundred x one thousand times until you get what you want or they close your account and rescind all Additional User points that haven't posted yet!

Call more! Call more! Tell your friends to call!

Will this work in addition to the 75k offer? also does it have to be a relatively new account or even if you have the card for a while? Thanks!

That's just them being lazy and not wanting to add the points. Other people have gotten their points successfully.

I recommend waiting the 6-8 weeks before trying again though.

They called me today with a long speech, bla bla bla. But they gave it to me in the end. Not before threatening that I won't receive anymore additional bonus points, without having written documentation.

1)No I've sent that to the CSAU department in Texas (I forgot on the moment where I wrote down the address), I sent the same letter via SM and it was rejected thru the stupid indians.
2) I mean to say, that they wanted to avoid giving me the feeling, that I was the winner in this case, so they told me that I should be aware that from now on I won't get any bonuses without written documentation, meaning that only if I get targeted for that promotion, I will receive it, and that their putting this on the account, bla bla bla.

Not that this is the best solution or anything, but if you are having trouble getting the points from them, and you keep hitting a wall, just ask them if they can give you at least some points as a courtesy for your trouble.

I added two authorized cards on my account when the offer was going on. They kept on refusing to post the points, so I just sent an SM asking nicely that since "I went through all the trouble" to add those two cards, it would be fair if I can get some points as a courtesy.

They responded and posted 10k points (instead of 20k).

No, this is not the best thing, but if you are having a really hard time...

I never even received my cards so called tonight and asked what the deal is. He gave me the whole "this was only targeted to the latin american market" shpiel (which the CSR didn't tell me the first time as I got in pretty early) and apologized profusely, put me on hold for 10 minutes to speak to 2 supervisors but came back and said they've taken a really hard line on this one so he wouldn't be able to offer me anything.  He sounded really contrite so I gave him the benefit of the doubt especially because I just got a big bonus recently so didn't want to press my luck too much and risk an F/R or something.

I spent an hour on the phone and got the whole latin america deal....some supervisor said she would forward a request as it was documented that a CSR had told me I was eligible...a week later the 50K posted.

Quickly moved the points to CO...just be persistent!

About three weeks ago when Dan posted this opportunity I signed onto my gold two authorized users.   I did not yet call to get the points and the question is if I can still add more au to try to get more points, meaning I would just call in to add the au without mentioning anything about points cause the Id is already on my account and then hit Amex with the new cards as well. Worth a shot or waste of time on the new ones?

Here's my version of "Go to He--"  regarding this offer:

I can appreciate your interest in this offer and will be glad to review this for you further.

Upon review of the offer, it is based on solicitation only so regrettably, we are unable to extend the offer to you. I understand that this may be disappointing to you; however, you can expect to see various promotions throughout the year for which you may be eligible. Our intent is to provide offers that will appeal to various interests and different types of people.

We appreciate your understanding and look forward to assisting you in the future.

Called to transfer all my points to CO and had her borrow 30k which would be covered by the 30k I was promised. I told her I would only borrow the 30k if I would for sure get them. She had no problem notating my account that if the 30k were not given to me then I would not have to pay back the 30k that I borrowed. After she did the transfer she said she opened a ticket to have the points credited and a couple days later my balance went from -29,432 to 432 :)

She did say that my original note was very strongly worded that if the points were not posted automatically then they would be credited manually...

I've heard that approach has worked a couple of times, i.e. people borrowing points on the promise of future bonuses. Seems to squeeze AMEX that much harder...

150k MR might be worth the risk...

Got a few friends with Square/Amazon Pmts? With AP you can do $1k today and $1k tomorrow (per account.

You're sure its not 3 months from the date of the letter?

I might consider calling the ECSR to have that offer modified... just a thought.

If you've got other UR accounts, you can just shift most of them to another account and it's much less likely they'll notice.

(that's not for SPLP, it's for other people considering sending an SM)

Like I like to say, it's all about being creative. I've found out that with the right technique even beating a deader-than-dead horse could pay off.

I'm not saying people should pursue this (especially if they don't have a plan), what I'm saying is that once this offer was dead (via CS) the smart people hit Twitter early before that died too.

Ugh. I guess I agree. But taking into account the amount of time that has expired since this dead was "officially" dead, combined with the fact that the longer the time that has expired likely means your account wasn't initially noted, I'd say the level of creativity would have to rise to immense proportions.

Personally, I still think (know?) there are tactics to get the 10k/user if one did the proper leg work before the hammer fell.

Add an additional card to any American Express by 12/31/11 and get 10,000 membership rewards points. bonus id 5721 and you get 10,000 points for every card you add!!
you have to call and add the person thru the rewards department so they can give you the points.
Small update: Minimum age is 16, SS# and DOB is required.
Additional user is required to make 1 purchase before the 10k points will be posted.


Couldn't find this on the site yet. From what I'm hearing you might have to call up a couple of times to get it seeing as its a targeted offer.
what do i have to tell them that i got this bonus ID offer??

Heads up! People on FT are reporting that they are getting the MR points now automatically for the AU's! This is despite the fact that they have been told months ago by Amex that they can't get it because it was "for South American customers".

Possibly, but I wouldn't hold my breath. A few months ago Amex suddenly gave everyone who signed up for the PRG card (the one for the University students) 40k points. Everyone got it on the same day.

If this wasn't done intentionally by Amex, then from a programming perspective I can speculate that the system was programmed to deposit the points no later than a certain deadline, and that deadline was most likely Jan 30, 2012. (But who knows?)
