AU is different than joint. AU is allowing them to use your account, a joint account gives her ownership over the account the same as you.
Edit: Just wanted to confirm you were talking about credit card accounts. Bank accounts (Checking/Savings/Money Market/CD and so on) individual or joint accounts, credit cards have individual (to which you can add AUs) or joint accounts (to which you can also add AUs)
