No.
so aside from advertising there is no reason they send the pre selected offer mail?
instead of writing "+1" and clogging up the thread give a like!

No.
But a pain to try to get for someone who never owned a cc or built a credit from being on someone else's credit card accounts.
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.
