Which credit cards report authorized users to credit bureaus

Does anyone know which credit card companies report authorized users to the credit major credit reporting companies? I have found so many varying answers online and I have asked two credit card companies if they do and the cust service reps don't even seem sure!

I know that Amex and GE does for sure.  I have my GF as an AU on my AMEX, and I'm an AU on her Banana Republic CC through GECRB.
