If you don't mind me asking, how did you go about getting added as an AU on the CareCredit account? I have set one up for my son and have looked and cannot find any info of how to go about being added as an AU as I am hoping that it will possibly give me a better chance of getting in with GE.
And still rebuilding

I was added to my Mothers CareCredit account two days ago...It was fairly simple. I called them and asked several questions, then they needed to speak with her and she needed to tell them my SSN and DOB and just like that it was done. They said that they report at the end of every month but I am still questioning how long until it shows up on my CR's.

Great - thanks for the info - Hopefully he will be in this evening and maybe we can start from there

Odd. My wife got the CC card about 3-4 years ago. At the time I asked if I could be added as an AU, and they told me they don't allow that. I'd have to apply separately for my own card.

Well here's hoping that they do permit it - fingers crossed

They offer both AU and Joint to be added after an account is open.
Last time I checked you can do at least AU online if not both AU and Joint.
AU will report to credit report but you are not responsible for account and joint of course will report AND you are responsible.

I have checked there and cannot find a link or anything - and for the "contact us" it just list actual phone numbers to call - not even an instant chat function showing
Should be able to find out something by this time next week.
Thanks again - with it showing on the CR hopefully that will help with other creditors in the near future. Would really like to close the Household Bank card since they decreased my limit due to inactivity and then told me to use it for the next few months and would be reviewed at the 6 mos time frame as a SP and still nothing...the 6 mos was up last month so thought that I would give them till the end of this month (June) to see what they were going to do - nothing yet and it's kind of hard to use a card with only a $305.00 limit (was $2,000.00) oh well....
Thanks and still rebuilding - not stopping to I get there

This is second hand information but a friend of mine said that she was placed on her moms account and it reported at the next statement cut.
