As far as I know all will. However you will not just be able to simply add her unless you want her to be an autorized user. A joint card holder that reports the card as hers as well will require an approval from said company. In other words she must be approved to be a "joint card holder". Which if she has the credit will not be a problem but if she is still building or has spotty credit it may be difficult. Especially if you have high CL and prime cards.

Also if she cant get approved for your cards have her start with a good started card at a lower limit. I.E. discover it, chase freedom or a credit union card. then have her make you a joint holder. Which will add to your total avail credit.
