Make sure that you are adding your dad as a "co-owner" of your credit cards (they will want his social security number, date of birth, etc.) because some cards (like Macy's and Discover) allow authorized users to simply have use of your credit and do not report to the authorized user's credit report. You might also consider co-signing for a card that he applies for himself directly
