Can adding an Authorized User to Alliant Visa in any way harm dh?

Can adding me as an authorized user harm any part of my husband's credit report - or most importantly his ability to get CLI's with Alliant?


He has a $10,000 cl. and a great Equifax.  My Equifax is pretty weak.  Can I hurt him?

Just puttin' syrup on something, don't make it pancakes.

Nope its not going to hurt him at all , and if i remember correctly when i added my wife to my Alliant visa . They do not report AU's at all . So while it will give you access to the card . Its not going to help you at all either .


The only way it will hurt him is if you go on a shopping spree! hehe
