AU without SSN?

Hi all,

 

My dad added my as an AU on his Chase Amazon Visa ($7,200 limit), 4 year history.  They didn't ask for my SSN, how can this still report to the CBA?

 

Thanks,

Re: AU without SSN?

I think because your an authorize user, only given a card in your name to be used. Your father is the one responsible for paying the bill and not you.

Yes, wife was added by AMEX by virtue of address.  It was strange when they did it, cuz if they can add without SSN.......that's just scary!

Re: AU without SSN?

Awesome, so as of my most recent CB pull I was 

 

EQ:  681

TU:  671

 

I have

 

Open

$15/$1,500

$0/$1200

 

Closed

$500

$1,000

 

4-5 Inq on each CB

 

~$50k in Student loans

 

How much will this boost help me, by March, all of my inquiries will be >6 Mo., and at this point I would like to apply for Discover more to replace the Citi card?
