Quick reminder to all readers, registration is still open for today’s Small Business Saturday event!  The promotion allows you to enroll each of your American Express cards in order to receive $25 back when you spend $25 or more at a qualifying small business location (or local Charity) on Small Business Saturday. Enrollment is limited and will continue until 11:59PM MST on November 24, 2012 unless the enrollment limit is reached sooner. Note that AMEX corporate cards and prepaid cards are not eligible. However, AMEX cards issued by other banks (including Citibank issued AMEX cards and store issued cards – Bloomingdales / Macy’s) as well as any authorized user cards with a unique card number are eligible!

I was able to register all seven of my AMEX cards including the SPG Personal, SPG Business, Delta SkyMiles Personal, Delta SkyMiles Business, Hilton HHonors, Bloomingdales, and Macy’s cards. Check out the Small Business Saturday Facebook page to see where you can use your discount on the 24th.

Yes they are, unless your authorized user has the same credit card number as the parent account. We did it last year with 5 diff. cards (one of them was an authorized user), and again this year with 9 different cards (3 of which are authorized users). Got all 9 confirmation emails and now heading out the door to spend the money.

The authorized users have the exact credit number as me. Are you saying it should work for the registration or not?

Actual American Express authorized user cards have different numbers than the primary cardholder. These work.

It’s the co-branded ones issued by other banks like Citi’s American Airlines Amex, BofA’s Virgin Atlantic Amex, et al, where the authorized user card numbers are the same as the primary cardholder. Those auth. users will not work.
