Hey guys I just got added to my parents Discover as an authorized user via the website yesterday.
I will let you guys know what happens. My previous address is the same as the card holders address.
It has a 15k limit and utilization is kept <15 and is 24 year old account with no lates.

On a side note,
I helped them sign up for online banking. They said they have never requested a CLI. My parents are afraid of asking for one. They are very conservative with credit.
Does the CLI button come up on the webpage? I did not see one on there. Has anyone got an instant increase via that love button ?

I'll be keeping an eye on this thread as I am going through the same thing. I was added about 3 weeks ago as an AU and nothing has shown up on my credit report as of today. I did however, change the billing address on the account to match mine. I will keep you posted to see if this works. Do you have the same address as the primary holder?
