So this would mean no pull on credit??

Re: AMEX AU question

They would not pull any credit for additional cards. This pretty clearly states that you are solely responsible for any charges made. Is very clear cut wording as to how it works.

Hrm, apparently I need to be smarter about my diet as my mental acquity is just too low when hungry; however, I'm not cerrtain this invalides what has been stated on this forum time and again regarding Amex's AC policies other than to confirm that you are indeed the bagholder if your AC flakes.  May be some difference too on age, certainly a 15 year old isn't liable (or at least legally enforceable I think) on that, and may have changed with the CARD Act.

 

Possible we're regurgitating outdated information.

Will AMEX put the credit of the person i am trying to add as AU?? My DW's credit is not good and i'm not trying to have any craziness if they pull her credit.


I added my kids to my AMEX account about 3 months after I got it....a Christmas gift to them, the gift of a prime credit card from AMEX.  I called in rather than doing it on line.  I asked the CSR how it works for them.  As noted from replies above, they're additional cardholders, with unique numbers that are off my number.  I am ultimately responsiible for the account.  I did have to provide their full identity information, ie, address and date of birth, but AMEX did not pull any credit reports on either of them...we checked.  AMEX CSR said that was their difference between an additional cardholder and just an authorised user, like most cards are.  Both of my kids had very thin files at the time, so if they HAD pulled they would likely have been denied if applying on their own.
