I'm considering giving them a call and applying over the phone. I don't have a company in the US, I've got a company here in Australia. Are there some things I need to bear in mind with these "Business" applications? I'm happy with how my Green Card is working - don't want to put that at risk for a quick 100K Marriott points.

Has anyone who has successfully applied for a US Amex business card got some intel to share?

Anyone from OZ without a SSN successful apply for the card below which comes with complimentary Hiton Diamond status? Any tips? American Express - /us/credit-cards/*
Yes. Quite a few have used Global Transfer, which uses your existing Amex AU profile for the application. See post # 47 to start with. There are also posts on the experience of others.

Is there any way I can get this card without an SSN/ITIN?
Can't do global transfer for business cards

Prob easiest legitimate way it to obtain a ITIN no to open up an online share trading account. Just purchase a few penny stocks & sell. Also allot of trading platforms in USA offer no commission fees when buying & selling stocks.


WeBull is very easy to use. Signup & deposit USD$100 & get unto 2 free stocks.

I’ll keep a closer eye out for next time Amex have this offer as it is good value pairing up the business with the personal card. I’ll need to figure out how to get an ITIN by then.

Does Amex have this bonus signup offer often throughout the year?

Ask for Daniel to setup a ITIN. The IRS has serious backlog of work to do, so it will take allot longer to get a ITIN setup. You can reach Daniel from Tax & Accounting Services

He also has knowledge on both USA & Aus taxes...!!!

I got 2 business cards from Amex (Marriott and Plat Charge). However, I have a SSN and had a active Personal Amex in the US till Sep 2019. The form is basic.
You can apply for the Amex card the same way.

Just had a look at Bonvoy Business.looks interesting. I have the basic Bonvoy card after they converted my old SPG card.

can I convert it to Business to get the new signup or do I need to apply again? Do I need a business that’s operating in the US? I’m operating one in Australia.
The answer is No you dont need a business operating in the US. You could be buying and selling stuff on eBay.

Does opening a trading account qualify you for applying for an itin ?
