Delta blue card:

You could both benefit when you add Additional Card Members:
Earn 5,000 bonus miles
Share benefits of your Delta SkyMiles Blue American Express Card with your spouse, child, or favorite cousin. When you add Additional Card Members, they can enjoy many of the perks you do, and you can earn 5,000 bonus miles after one Additional Card Member spends $500 in eligible purchases on their Card in the first six months of Card Membership.1

Offer ends 10/31/2021.

1. Additional Card Member offer terms
Add one or more new Additional Card Members to your account through this email and you can earn 20,000 Membership Rewards® Points after each Additional Card Member spends $2000 or more in eligible purchases on their Card within their first 6 months of Card Membership starting from the date on which the Additional Card Member is added. The maximum you can earn as part of this offer is 20,000 points.

Does the last line mean that you won’t get the bonus for more than one AU? Because the beginning sounds like you can get 20,000 per AU. & it seems like doc understood it that way as well. Anybody know?

On a biz plat I got an offer to add AU’s with a bonus up to 100k - 20k per user.

1- When I applied for the card I added two AUs on this offer landing page it says AUs need to be added on the page to get the bonus… is that true?

2. Does AU spending for this offer count towards SUB spending as well?

Add the AUs via the targeted offer to make sure it works. Not sure it's enforced, but not worth risking it over the few minutes it takes to order AUs.


Spending will count towards SUB.

JUST ADD RANDOM NAMES! Not sure what people aren't getting about this.


Either way, they don't ask for DOB so wouldn't make a difference.

Some stores ask for ID when swiping
