Looks like Amex is the exception to the business/personal differentiation unlike other issuers.

Hoping someone on here might know the answer- does a family member supplementary card holder count as “holding any other card product issued by American Express”?

I run a small business on the side together with my partner who is a supplementary card holder while I’ve had my Amex Platinum charge card for many years.

Would he be eligible for the bonus if he took out this business card in the name of our company? Or is the simple fact that he owns the business jointly with an existing card member (me) already enough to make it ineligible? Thanks for any advice!

Don't know much about how it works with Business Cards, but supplementary card holders can normally still get the bonus points.

That’s what I thought. But we own the company together so that might be the sticking point.

Hoping someone might know...

it should be fine as long she hasn't held a basic card in her name in the last 18 months. has anyone with a amex personal card applied for their first business card in their company name gotten points please report back here? i know it has worked for me with personal cards as i didnt tick nor list myexisting membership no. and used a different address and got new membership starting date from 2017 and still got bonus points. havent tried this year but tempted to get a company card to see if 100k of points come through.
