What Credits & Benefits Do Amex Platinum Authorized Users Get?

- Jan 15, 2023 Credit Card Info0 comments

There is a lot of confusion about which benefits and credits Amex Platinum authorized users get.

We did a lot of research on the subject and we reached out to Amex to clarify as well. 

Amex has 4 types of Platinum cards. Let’s discuss each one.

Amex Platinum Business ($695)

You can add authorized users on three levels. 

Here are the benefits included for each level.

Platinum level

$250 per
authorized user)

No matter on which level the authorized user gets added, the authorized user will earn the same rewards on purchases as the primary.

The credits mentioned above, even though the authorized users don’t get their own credits, the primary can share each credit with it’s authorized users. Purchases made on the authorized user cards are eligible for credits, up to the maximum amount allotted to the primary.
