Approved for Amex Gold

I’m thinking strongly about trying to get the Amex Rose Gold just because I think it’s cool. I’m prequalified for the Amex Gold so I think I would be able to get it. 9 inquiries on EX.

I would have my husband refer me but he has an Amex Platinum and I’m an AU on his account. Do I have to be referred by someone who has Rose Gold or will my husbands Platinum work? Can he refer me when I’m an AU?

Re: Amex Rose Gold referral

It seems I’ve answered my own question with a search on here. It seems I can just apply for the Gold and then can call to PC to the Rose Gold. Now I just need to see how itchy my fingers are...

Re: Amex Rose Gold referral

Have your husband refer you; that way he gets whatever MR points bonus for a successful referral and you will also get the signup bonus.

 

It might also be possible as an authorized user than you can refer yourself; you'd need to check if you have the ability to refer but I've referred myself for Amex cards and gotten both the SUB and referral bonuses.

Too late! I already applied lol. But  I did try to have my husband refer me and never got the email >:~[. However, I clicked on the give me my card number now link because I’ve seen some people successfully get a $60 statement credit when it doesn’t work and guess what, it didn’t work and I got the $60! Woo hoo!

Thanks guys! It was a really quick call to change to the Rose Gold, and the automated system lady even knew what I was talking about.
