    Does it means only 1 X $5000 points to be rewarded?

  •  

    problem is when I log into Amex, no message pop up and no email notification

    • +1 vote

      Give it a few days, then call or go on the online chat to ensure your account is eligible. From what I've noticed in previous campaigns, these things get promoted in batches

  •  

    Is this best offer or do they ever offer more for additional card holder?

    • +1 vote

      It's been 5k for many years now (deal comes and goes). It's best if you have an Amex with Qantas or Velocity since MR is only worth 2,500 points when you send it across.

  • +1 vote

    Confirmed with Amex via chat that the bonus points will apply if the supp card holder has had a supp card from your account before.

  •  

    My amex is linked to QFF so I assume this is 5000 amex points? If so does 5000 get you anything?

    •  

      2 amex rewards = 1 QFF

      So you'll get 2500 QFF points.

        No necessary true, my rewards program is QFF and I got 5,000 QFF points. I believe the promo is just 5,000 points to your applicable rewards program.

    • +1 vote

      If you have a card that earns directly into QF or VA you will get a full 5k points. If you earn MR you will get 2,500 (for most airline partners).

    Good time to stock up supp card to be ready for Amex Small Shop in November.

  •  

    Please Can someone explain thanks?

    Is it that easy to get supp cards for say children, parents, uncles etc? Some has like 10 or 20 I heard.

    Are they need to be in the same address as me, the main holder? What kind of ID I need to provide? And Income proof?

    Then for each card we need to register online, correct? With different email addresses?
    Thanks.

    •  

      With Amex it's a pretty straight forward form.. gives you a bunch of 'relationship' types to choose from.

      You may need to provide ID like Driver's License but the address doesn't have to be the same.

      Double check the card though, some may start charging for additional supp cards after a while.. the one I have is 4 free supp cards.

    •  

      There's an age restriction of 16. Apart from that, you can give a sup to anyone you want. Doesn't have to be direct relatives. Keep in mind that you are 100% liable for any transactions.

    •  

      I applied and they called me earlier this week - they needed their full name, mobile, asked if they were living in Australia, and asked for driver licence/passport/medicare number. That was it - no income check.

  • +1 vote

    Income proof is not needed for Supp cards. You'll be personally liable for anything spent on your Supp cards.

  •  

    So just ID is required? Will that person get a credit check on their file?

    •  

      No credit checks and not normally an ID check. I know I didn't need one for my cat or my dog's card.

      •  

        Wow that is crazy we can even get one for fictional name. Surely the system is broken full of holes…

      • +4 votes

        They made my rabbit jump through hoops for it to be approved.

      •  

        Did you actually get a supplementary amex card for your dog? Cause that's amazing if you did. So you just left all the optional fields blank?

        • +2 votes

          Yep, and the cat. Value for when it's Small Shop time and signing up for stackable offers.Just tick what you want on the form. Trust me. Amex don't care as long as you are spending money on their cards.

    •  

      Did not check id when I did it. Maybe get one with the same initial as your name for when you need to prove identity.

  •  

    Wait…. If I create lots of supp with different names, Westfield will check my Id to match the cards before I can buy gift cards, correct?

    Thanks OP. Easy 5K points:-)

  •  

    if your main account already has a supplementary card can you add another and still qualify for this promo or is it just for main account holders that dont have any current supplementary cards?

    • +1 vote

      Just add 1 into your account. Doesn't matter you have supplementary card before and cancelled or you have 1 card and add extra one.

    •  

      I just asked this question on Live Chat, and this was the guy's response:

      The first Supplementary Card that you add during this offer period, will be eligible for you to receive 5,000 bonus points.

  •  

    How many additional cards can one main holder apply?

  •  

    has anyone gotten the offer on their business amex? i have it only on my personal cards

  • -1 vote

    So, the supp card also gets the Shop Small deal?

  •  

    No sure whether it's happening with everyone else but it seems the Woolies spend $20 get $10 back even appears on the supplementary cards when creating a new account. YMMV.

  •  

    Hang on, so are people just signing up fictional people? I see a drop down option for Friend or Other. Since the primary account holder is liable, they don't seem to do any verification. Can anyone confirm they've done this?

    •  

      I added my spouse as an additional cardholder on Friday. Surname is hyphenated, omitted hyphen (so it fits into the form's surname field), supplied spouse's (optional) licence number. Today received a call (!) from AmEx to confirm some details before the application can be processed (apparently the supplied surname didn't match surname during licence check). So, assuming the rules are not as relaxed as some may think or maybe it was just a bad luck for me.

      •  

        Well you said optional so what if we don't supply any kind of id?

        •  

          Try it, I guess. I actually supplied that licence number thinking they won't have any questions if they need to validate it …

    • +1 vote

      They called me to asked for supp cardholder's full name, whether they lived in Australia and a passport/medicare/driver licence number - said they would do some electronic search.

  •  

    I tried to add the supplementary card to Google Pay, and it says that a call to Amex would be needed before it can be added.

    Would Amex be OK with me calling up & confirming that the card can be added ? Or, would they need to speak with the supplementary card holder before approving it ?

    Would they be upset if I add the supplementary card to the same Google Pay account as my main card ?

    •  

      Would they be upset if I add the supplementary card to the same Google Pay account as my main card ?

      Unless you already have five Amex cards on Google Pay, no. I have two primary cards and two supplementary cards on mine. How many Amex cards do you have on Google Pay? I heard there was a limitation of five or six, which is probably why you have to call Amex …

    •  

      They don't need to speak to the supp card holder. I couldn't apply online and had to call them. Next day they called me and asked for some additional details (supp cardholder's full name, whether they live in Aus and passport/medicare/driver licence number) and then told me straight away they were approved and I would get additional card in mail within 1-2 weeks.
