New to the Amex Optima -- Can I get added as an AU to another Amex?

[ Edited ]

Just paid off a CO Amex account in full and got welcomed back to the Amex family with an Optima card 4 months ago. A family member has an Amex Platinum card that he's willing to add me as an AU to (to help increase my AAoA since it's a 20 year old account). But I heard that you can't apply for any Amex cards for at least the first year that you have the Optima (sort of a probational period). Would it be looked at any differently for an AU? Since I'm not applying for the card on my own and would be requesting to be added to a current long-standing Amex account, do you think I would get approved for that?

Thanks in advance! :smileyhappy:

I think you'd be ok.  But it would be good to call and ask.  The CSR will let you know for sure and they are really nice.
