What is a Supplementary Card?

A Supplementary Card is an additional Card that lets you share the benefits and convenience of your American Express Card with family or friends. With just one account, Supplementary Cards can be used in different locations at the same time. Plus, if you are enrolled in Membership Rewards, you’ll earn points whenever additional Card Members use their Supplementary Card.
