"Earn up to 5,000 Flying Club bonus miles when you add additional authorized users to your Card"
T & C doesn't mention any bonus points for adding additional authorized users.
What does "up to 5000 bonus miles" equate to? How many additional users do I need to earn the complete 5000 bonus miles?
Do I need to add addtional users at the time of the application or after I receive the card?
I combed the t&c and finally noticed this-
You will receive 2,500 Flying Club miles for each of the first two authorized users added to your Card. As the primary Cardmember, you are responsible for all account activity incurred by additional users of your Card, in accordance with your Credit Card Agreement.
I applied for the card when it went down to the 25,000 bonus and I just called and talked to someone and she said I am still listed as getting the 50,000. So I guess even though it's not showing the full 50,000 anymore the computers are still giving it. Weird. Hope she's telling the truth
Good to know.
For the bonus, one may just it for a online purchase as they can't tell which card is used and will assume the terms meet.

The mag tape stores the AU's name and other identifier. I found this out when AU card was compromised and the bank called. They specifically asked if the AU was traveling (the charges were made in Mexico). They knew it was the AU card being used (a cloned one from info stolen, probably at the doctor's office as that was the only place, only time the AU card was used in 3 months' period.), and all transactions were POS transactions. So right out of bat they knew it was a cloned card once they verified the AU did not leave home and the card was in our possession.
Thanks for the link! Just applied, instant approval.
The approval page had a few lines on it, but it went to the Virgin Atlantic home page before I could read all of it! Besides my credit limit, did I miss anything important?
You didn't miss anything. I saw the same as you but I called 1-877-721-9405 for application status and confirmed that it is 20k bonus miles for first spending and 25k extra miles for $2500 spend in 90 days. I also entered an additional card user on the application form and CSR told me that the ONE card user will give me 5k points.
