Update: Readers have written that this code 6661 is the promo to get 75K miles for new accounts. It is not for authorized users.
Million Mile Secret reader Shari (Thanks, Shari!) wrote in the comments on earning 50,000 MR points by adding an authorized user:
When I called about this, I got a really nice agent who said that she knew of a better promo for my Amex Gold Card – code 6661. Code 6661 allows me to add up to 5 additional cardholders to my card. Each additional cardholder that spends $1000 within 92 days of getting the card will net me 75,000 Membership Rewards apiece . The agent also said that when the card is received, I can call in and have this card linked to MY Membership Rewards acct (ie. not the cardholders’ MR acct.) Annual Fee is waived for the 1st year for up to 5 additional cardholders.
I haven’t tried this, but thought I’d share, because the sooner you jump in on these promos the more likely you are to get the bonus miles.
Thanks again, Shari!
