Will adding wife as AU effect score?

Will adding my wife as an AU onto my AMEX or CSP effect my credit score? She has low scores in the mid 500's with several baddies on her report.

I added her to my VentureOne card about a year ago and as far as I can tell it has had no effect. Now the only information CO asked what name to put on her card. It shows on her credit report somehow though lol.

I know AMEX asks for her SSN and much more other info than CO did. I would like to add her to the BCP as she does most of the grocery shopping.
