I get notifications for spend on my card, but not for my wife’s supplementary card. I’m sure I did with a previous card.

I don’t see why I can’t, nor shouldn’t, as they are purchases being posted to my account.

The advice from online in-app chat has been for her to update her settings and put my email and phone number in – but a) that misses the point HUGELY (how would she then get notifications of purchases on her supp card?) and b) means that I would also get notifications about spend on her other card, where she is the main card holder.
