It -CAN- effect you negatively, if you do not pay within the T&C laid out in the agreement, but for the most part it does not.

AMEX PIGGY BACK

Postby NJGREEK » Thu Apr 19, 2012 3:37 pm

Hi all,

i am trying to improve my credit and happened to come along to this site. My question is: I am an authorized user on plum amex, but it does not show up on my credit report. How do i go about getting this account to report on credit scores? Any help would be appreciated in getting the big 3 to report on it.

Thanks n advance

I am not 100% certain but this is a business card and that might be the reason it doesn't report. If that isn't the case, you should have the primary cardholder contact AMEX to find out what the dealio is. They should have your SSN and DOB on file as AMEX requires that info to add the AU.

They failed to provide your SSN/DOB and link it to the credit profile. Simple fix, have the business call American Express and update this information.
