Do you mean three?

I thought it was four free additionals, so yes, I guess three @ $50 or more each would do.

would the card work for lounges although it was never activated or only if it was activated (even if cancelled)?

Why does that matter? Just activate it then cancel it.

don't forget there's another $175 fee for adding up to 3 additional users, that means $50 apiece won't even cover what you have to pay to get them cards, let alone help cover the annual fee.   not sure where the sense in that is.

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) ;)

does an initial work? (i have 4 family members with same first initial) want to make a card with first initial/last name. will they all be able to get into lounges with it?
Sounds like this could work.

It does not need to be activated.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Wouldn't I get the refund on the $175 when cancelling the card?

Is this not a limited time offer?

regardless only one person will get the "limited time" 50k. why would that be an incentive for your authorized users to quickly get it done?
