They don't need to be AU to qualify. he's saying that each AU card can purchase global entry and will be refunded!
I know, I'm saying that i made global entry with them being added and i got refunded.

I have a couple questions that may seem obvious to some and they were probably already discussed somewhere up-thread but i'd appreciate responses :)

1. Does spending on additional free green cards on the business plat count as "eligible purchases" toward the spending thresh hold to get signup bonus
2. Does spending on the other perks like $200 incidental airline credit, $100 dell, global entry etc count as "eligible purchases" as well
3. What is NOT considered "eligible purchases"
4. What benefits do free (green cards) additional users get? I know they can get a global entry credit but anything else? any lounge access?
1. yes
2.  and 3. i dont know
4. no lounge only GE

I remember someone giving me free globa entry credits to sell so they can gain in spending. I cannot give you personal experience, however I am pretty sure that he did it for this reason.

thanks.
Know about this but it's a little risky, complicated and time consuming especially that I cannot do drop off as I'm in FL.
Would like to avoid them or not spend too much there if possible.
But thanks for trying to help

I heard that visa gift cards and the like are not considered "eligible purchases" toward spending threshold?
Anyone have any DP about this?
If true, is it only for cash style gift cards or also for store gift cards like Amazon, Target , Wal-Mart etc.l

It actually "officially" works.
 FromAmex site where they spell it out clearly that ge credit is for all additional members.

thanks. IMO it's not that clear from their official wording.  It says "each eligible additional card" so one can say it may only be referring to paid additional plat cards but not the free additional green cards

IME as a gold additional user on a personal platinum card, the global entry credit applies even to none-paid additional users

Thanks.  Good to hear first hand from someone.
Yes, as discussed above the credit is even for free additional green cards on the business plat but it's not something I would know without Dan or someone else posting that it worked for them.

Thanks. Dan disagrees btw :)
