AU USER

I asked two members about this method AU on my stepmother credit line, i am trying to get a boost in my credit score to purchase a used car before the weather gets really cold that is nov in dc.  Right know my average credit score is at 575 for all three CR.  I read about this method online, I have a active credit card now but i takes time to build the score. The reason why nov is great is because a 4000. debt falls of my account is November which means i will be CA debt free.

Re: AU USER

As of now, fico 08 has not kicked in and AU accounts will still help your scores.

Re: AU USER

Any account, so long as that creditor does indeed report AU's.
 
Which card is this for and maybe someone here can help you see if they do report?

Re: AU USER

It is a Macy store card.  I do not believe it has a Visa or mastercard logo strictly for store use.

Re: AU USER

I have Macy's store card, but I have no AU's listed and do not know personally if they report.
 
Here is the number to the credit dept. 800-876-6229
 
Call and see if they will report if your step-mom add's you to her account.
