American Express cardholders have the option to authorize additional users and request cards for these members, as long as the credit account is in good standing. Although additional cards may contain the name of the member, the credit account itself remains in the principal cardholder's name. This arrangement can have a negative impact on your credit rating if the additional member uses your card irresponsibly, but you can remove the member from your American Express account.
