    Hi Raffles,

    Sent you email about referral link for Amex Platinum (just in case it gets lost in your email/spam)

    Can the supplementary cards be done on the application or only on link via the article?

    • Rob says:

      You can do them via the application but you DON’T receive the 10k. The 10k is only when you use the link in the article.

      Will ping the email across soon – not at a PC at the moment.

  • Chewbacca says:

    I just got my platinum. Can I add wife as first supplementary on the link and receive the priority pass card?

    Could I add myself and wife again as supplementary holders on the link saying it was for business exp tracking, would I need to add anything to name like Exp after end?

    Amex Travel doesn’t show Aer Lingus to Cork on the site any idea whether this could be booked over the phone for the £100 back?

    • Rob says:

      Yes. In fact, you definitely should. It is free and it lets you double up on promotions. It also means you could both use Eurostar or Delta lounges if you found yourself travelling with them.

      I thought the Amex promo was online only but off the top of my head can’t remember.

      • Chewbacca says:

        Was about to use the link for adding first supplementary card and it asks how many supplementary cards you want, can I use the link more than once? I was going to apply for wife’s first.

        Can I add a supplementary card for myself and wife even if she is supplementary.. is there some notation in the application where you can denote a card as Exp so you can say it is going to be used for business expenses otherwise I can’t imagine you can get a supplementary as well?

  • Chewbacca says:

    Do the cards need to be activated as well?
