How to Add Authorized Users to American Express Credit Cards (Small Business Saturday) and New AMEX Offers
Good morning everyone, according to Greg (aka Frequent Miler), American Express Small Business Saturday is coming back this year (November 29). He wrote a great post (link) on how to maximize earnings while shopping at small business. The easiest way to rack up savings is to add authorized users to your AMEX credit cards.
The first thing you need to do is log into your American Express account and click on More Account Options under the credit card you want to add authorized users to. Most credit cards will let you add authorized users for free, but some premium cards like the American Express Platinum Card and some business cards will charge you for authorized users. You probably don’t want to add authorized users to those cards just for this promotion.
Click the Add Others To Your Account link, not the similarly sounding Add & Manage Authorized Users link.
Select the credit card you want to add authorized user to and enter the 4 digit code on the front of the credit card.
Read the small box of text under the credit card to see if there is a fee to add authorized users to your credit card. Then fill out their personal information including SSN and click Verify.
Verify the personal information is correct and click Confirm. The next screen should say that your new authorized user cards are on their way.
You should not add multiple authorized user cards to every credit card you have, just 1 or 2 authorized users per card should be plenty. If you add too many authorized users, you may trigger an American Express Financial Review.
Here are some of the latest AMEX Offers that showed up in my account:
