    Where do you check what offer you got? I only activated my first Amex a few days ago so I doubt I’ll have the offer

    • Received it via email

  • I got the $50 statement credit offer

  • Probably an easy question, but if I get an additional card, does that invalidate them from Amex bonus point offers if they sign up for their own card in the near future (ie. So they need to serve the cooldown period)?

    • +2

      No, only applies to the primary card holder.

      • Cool, thanks!

  • So if I already have an additional card then it won’t work because it has to be the first one?

    • Conditions seems to say you can add a new person and qualify

    • +5

      I just now added my 4th additional card holder and 10,000 bonus points got added instantly. I believe it means first additional card holder after receiving this offer.

    • Best of all, there are no annual fees for up to four Additional Card Members

      That kind of suggests it's applicable to the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th ACM

    I wonder if a pet can be a card holder…

    • US cardholders can but not us.

    Do additional card holders only need to go through an ID check? No credit check required?

    • +1

      Definitely no credit check, there's no additional credit limit given. Possibly no ID check.

      • -1

        Not so sure. I had a supplementary card application knocked back previously. Then did it for an alternative family member, and they were instantly approved.

  • Nothing on my DJ Platinum

  • We have 2 Qantas Ultimate cards but no offers to add another card

  • +1

    Anyone notice additional holder don’t have any Amex offers?

    • Yeah I have nothing on my secondary.

    • Correct. No offers for secondary card holder here either

  • I tried a “adult child” additional card holder and amex denied it requesting ID etc. then did my girlfriend and she was instantly approved.

    • Did you need to have id for girlfriend?

  • Also got the 10 000 points offer on my DJs Amex

  • 10k points

    • Hey Korban did you get an email about the offer or was the additional card offer on your account dashboard?

  • Damn! had I known this would be an option I wouldn't have got an additional card from the start!

  • You can still add any family member and cancel the secondary card (new one) few months later?

  • 10k points on explorer as well.

  • Applied and approved this morning and 10k bonus points already posted.

  • Received my credit today, very fast turnaround

  • Regarding impact on additional cardholders credit report

    • does this card show up on their credit report and therefore potentially eat into their available credit (as in, now they have $20k of credit available to them so bank may not be keen to make even more available)
    • does it count as a credit check? I'm seeing mixed info above.

    Also, can I add someone, get bonus and then just drop them?

    • Just do not give them the card.

    Answer on their FAQ:

    "Will my Additional Card Member undergo a credit check?
    We’ll work with you to verify your Additional Card Member, however they will not undergo a formal credit check."

  • Thanks Op, received my $50 credit within 1 day of adding new cardholder.

    • Thanks for the update.
      Still waiting for $50 credit, applied on Sunday (I’ll be patient lol)

  • If my partner already has her own AMEX Ultimate Qantas card, can I still add her as additional member under my card that is of the same type?

    • You can try. Sometimes they do not even ask any identity questions and people have them in their pet's name. All they can do is say no.

  • how do you add the additional card?

    • Use the link in the e-mail you received to apply.

    Deactivated my additional card which was on my wifes name on Monday. added her again on Wednesday and got approved after giving them the id to verify the address.

    10,000 points added today.
