My brother in law added me to his chase freedom visa card as an authorized user.
We of course have different last names but we live in the same house hold I mean we have the same physical address.
My question is , Is this card gonna show up on my credit report ?
I called the customer service today for activation of my card and I asked the same question answer was a NEGATIVE
I was hoping for a break cuz I have been getting alots of pre approved offers from every where but nothing from chase, I thought this way I'll get a chance to get my own chase credit card but I doubt it now
Any how please suggest.

The Card will report on your report but may take upto 60 days depending on when the statement closes and reports to the bureaus. The customer service rep you spoke with is probably from overseas and possibly be new as well who provided the wrong information.
