Chase Default --Authorized User

I defaulted on a Chase credit card I obtained on college in 2005.  It's about to drop off my credit report in November.  In the mean time, I wanted to know if there would be an issue if I was added as an authorized user on my parent's Chase Sapphire card.  I know there are issues if you've ever defaulted with American Express, I was just hopping Chase was not the same.  Thanks in advance guys!

I doubt there will be an issue. I added my fiancée as an AU to my Chase cards and she doesn't even have a U.S. SSN (she's not American). Chase just wanted her name and how it was spelled. That's it. She could have been named Daisy Duke and I doubt they would have cared.

There should not be a problem being added as an AU but as far as later opening up another Chase card chances are slim to none.

Re: Chase Default --Authorized User

What if I was an AU on a Chase card that was charged off (shows up on my reports that I was an AU, currently in dispute to be deleted) could I apply for my own Chase card with no black lash for the old CO? (Sorry for the hijack of your post OP Smiley Embarassed)

I've heard/read horror stories about CC's coming after the AU's when a card defaults...Don't know what to tell ya.

Hi Burned--

 

Not really sure I understand your response?  Seems like that would be illegal.

I don't believe that there should be an issue.

If there is an issue, then Chase will likely notify your parent, and the account will remain intact without your being an AU.
