Are self-referrals still a thing?

    Been out of the amex game for a while, is it still possible to refer myself for a different card and get the relevant bonuses? Couldn’t see this posted anywhere else on the forums. Thanks in advance.

    No. People in the US were getting their accounts closed for doing this.

    If you want a referral feel free to email me 🙂

    Thanks Rhys! Good job I didn’t give it a shot then..

    And thank you for the offer(s) both. I will be ok on this occasion though, I’ll rejig mine and my partner’s application order so that she can refer me 😉

    Someone just spammed HFP so Rhys is on high alert mode, drinking loads of coffee

    If he’s had too much coffee it could perhaps be him, airline spam diarrhoea!

    On a slightly related matter, I referred a friend yesterday morning and she received her card in the post today and my 9k referral bonus points are showing on my account. I’ve had an issue or two with Amex over the years but I’m pretty impressed on this occasion.
