Military Benefits Extend To Spouses With American Express When Military Members Are Added As An Authorized User
American Express provides benefits for military members that are above and beyond what is required under the SCRA & MLA. The most significant is the fact that annual fees are waived for those on active duty. This can provide significant value for military members due to applying to cards with large annual fees like the regular Platinum & Delta Deserve card (as well as the upcoming Hilton Aspire). The benefit also applies to account where you have an authorized user attached, but reddit user GenericWittyNameHere had his wife add him as an authorized user on her Platinum card and just received a response that for all her cards where he is an authorized user the annual fees will be refunded, they also retroactively refunded the annual fee on her Platinum card that was charged back in November, 2016. This is a pretty huge addition for active duty military and their spouses, hopefully this helps a few people! As always you can read more about each card issuers SCRA policies here and their MLA policies here. Also apologizes for the title gore, I couldn’t think of anything better.
