Wife as AU on Comenity cards?

I have 3 cards backed by Comenity.  Should I add my wife to all 3 at once?  Basically, she has ZERO credit.  We recently picked up a Wells Fargo secured card for her.  Being that she has no AAoA as it is, would it be best to just go ahead and add her to all 3 cards (VS 750cl, Brylane Homes 500cl, Jcrew 1k cl) to help her build?

I would add her to only one (Jcrew-the highest limit). My wife put me as an authorized user on a Comenity store card after my bk7. After 6 months of reporting, I was approved for one of their cards. 

 

Since she will have a secured card, and will be added to one of your Comenity card, eventually she will be able to apply for a non-secured Capital One, or a store card after 6 months depending on her score.
