Which Cards Report AU to Credit Bureaus

Postby ZionBob » Tue Feb 11, 2014 3:45 pm

Trying to help my partner with her credit score by adding her as an authorized user to one of my cards. Does anybody know which CCs report AU to the credit bureaus? (Otherwise, it would be pointless.)

Thanks.

Many of them do. Which ones are you considering?

Does Chase or Discover report authorized users to credit bureaus?

I know that Discover and CITI do, as I have both my kids as AU on cards from each. AMEX calls them Additional Card Members (ACM), and you'll need SSN to add. For that, the ACM gets their own unique card number, that's a sub-set of the card holder's account.
Retired, and in the process of retiring cards!
