Need Suggestions for a CC that will list me as an AU on my CR

My Mom added me to her Walmart Discover card as an authorized user in April.  To date, it still had not reported on my CR.  We called this morning and were informed that the AU card information will only show up on your CR if you are a spouse.  I am looking to add some extra points to my score.  Any suggestions for a card that will report if you are not a spouse?

Capital One will . . . and fairly quickly as well.  I got on my boyfriends and it was reported within 30 days.

Thanks!  My Mom has at least one of those.  I will ask her to add me on.
