Money card wrote:who ever your helping I hope it's a family member and not a friend or neighbor, because they have history of not paying back what they owe and it gets messy. but if it's a family member that's fine. It probably won't because it's your card and account number if the person want's there own card in a few years they will be given the date they applied plus, they would have there name on the card, if it's your wife or husband then the answer would be yes. no length of time is needed as long as the accounts are the same number, last four can be changed for security reasons.
if your sharing a card and your the one that filled out the application it will say the financial company's name or bank name. on there credit report it should say the same but it will have the year you opened up the card it might say on there report additional user.
I'm not exactly 100% sure.

But if it's your wife or husband because your married I would say yes.
for example back in 1994 me and my dad shared a gold card I used the card, when going out to places.
I now have a green card got it in 2010 the membership date says 10 not 1994 or 94.
if your married to someone I would say yes but if it's just a family member example brother , sister or cousin I would say no if they decide to apply in a few years they would get there own date.
