    It's been a tough time getting my fiance into the points/miles game. She has a Freedom card but still insists on using her BOA debit most of the time. I found the solution in Amex Everyday Preferred. Well I won't use it 30 times a month (because of card bonuses) she will. So I made her a card holder on my account and told her to literally use it for everything. Simple and effective. I can always fill in a few swipes to get to 30 if need be.

    I was gonna ask ... if authorized users would help meet the 30/20 swipes per month category :) This will make my wife's job a lot easier

    They track in their handy counter on the amex website for the card.

    So both cards = increase in swipe counter? :) ROCK on!

    Time for both of us to get preferred; then downgrade one & add auth user...
