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.

Re: AU without SSN?

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!

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

 

EQ:  681

TU:  671

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?
