Amex is currently running a promotion offering 5,000 Amex points to existing cardholders for adding a supplementary cardholder. The offer applies to many Amex credit cards including the Amex Explorer, Platinum Edge, Velocity Platinum and Qantas Amex Ultimate cards.

Amex are running the promo again for 5,000 bonus points for adding a supplementary card holder, You need to do it over the phone.

I was eligible on my Explorer and Platinum Edge, but not my Gold Charge.

The offer can only be used once per card, but it is possible to add supplementary cardholders to more than one credit card. 5,000 bonus points are awarded per card.


There is no requirement to spend a minimum amount of money on the supplementary card.

The bonus points will generally post a few days after ordering the supplementary card, although Amex officially says that the points will be credited up to 4 weeks after the promotion ends. This would be at the end of September.

The promotion is running until 2 September, 2017. If you’re interested, our members recommend applying well before this date. Amex ran a similar promotion in May, and some members missed out on the bonus points because their applications were processed after the offer expiry date.

Applied for supplementary card at end of May as well. Was told over phone was eligible for 3k pts. Followed up last week to be told as it wasn’t “approved” until June , I don’t get em ?

Nonetheless, many of our members have already received the points from this promotion. If you’re thinking about adding an additional cardholder to your account, these are an easy 5,000 points!

Call made. Supp card applied for for both Explorer & Ultimate Card. 10k pts on their way. Too easy. I still love you AMEX!

Just applied for supp card for my edge and reserve. 2 X 5000 points coming my way. Thanks OP!

You would need to call Amex to apply for this offer.
