Steps to add an authorized user to your American Express account 

If you have the correct AMEX Login credentials, you can definitely complete this process in just a few minutes. Here are the steps that you must follow in a sequential manner to add the users:

  3. Followed by this, enter your AMEX login credentials to sign into your account

  6. Enter the complete details of that person 
  7. Type his Social Security Number as well 
  8. Voila! This completes the process to add an authorized user to your card 

Things to consider before adding a user 

Before you take on the steps to add a new user to your American Express account, you need to take a few points into consideration. 

First of all, you should ask yourself a few questions- whether that user is having the physical card as well. If he does have it with him, the user would have complete access to your personal credit line. 

In addition to that, if you are adding an authorized user, it will cost you around $175 annually. This means that the process to add the user would add up to your expenses. Moreover, if you add a user, it will help him build his own credit score. 

So, if you agree to all of these terms, then only you should take additional steps to add them.
