Bonus for adding Authorized User?

Just got the card and wanted to add my wife as an authorized user - any current 1,000 pt,etc bonus links for adding users? I found a few from 2010, but nothing recent.

referral page seems to not be working. I keep on getting a "system not responding, try again later" error message.

Anyone else?

There is an ad on my wife's SPG AMEX account this morning specifically mentioning this kind of promo:

Worked for me a few minutes ago. Keep trying, or perhaps try another browser.

Perfect, the promos this year have been awesome and almost paid for my yearly fee of my gold card with them. Wouldn't mind paying my second year of starwood card with them, which is why I wanted to know! Glad someone can verify this for sure. Most people were guessing that I've asked.

Sounds like AmEx's Like, Link, Love promo (which is compatible with the SPG AmEx cards). See sync.americanexpress.com

Another swing, another miss. I called to request that they bump the bonus for me as I had applied in May under the 25K offer. The CSR told me she could only convert me to the new promo if I had opened the card within the last 60 days.

Applied for both personal and business last week. Personal got instant approval, business just got approved yesterday. I am afraid that there were 2 hard pulls, anybody has any input ?
thanks.

There is a post by ThePointsGuy about such situation:

It looks like - 2 pulls.

I have a question - mostly all promotions from AMEX have a new requirement - bonus is not available to people who has this product during the last 12 months. My wife is a AU on my SPG card. If she apply for her own SPG card now, will AMEX deny her 30K bonus or not? I assume "no", since the original bonus was given to primary cardholder.
