Is there any benefit for me trying to get added as a joint card holder as opposed to an AU?

only benefit would be she can't close the account without your authorization and she can't remove you from it either.

Re: Chase Authorized User

So if I want to add my fiance as an AU, if i only put her middle name as her first name, or just a letter for her first name (and different last names), and also we have different addresses, it won't report to the credit bureau?
