Amex reports AU TLs to the CRAs.

My mom added me as an authorized user on her Chase credit card...however after finding out they do NOT report AU information to the CRA's I am in the same boat! Is there certain companies that do this, and some that don't? I am so confused. I know it will be over as of Sept. but we want to refi really quick and I don't care if its there in sept.Thanks for any advice.

I've got good news ...well at least in my opinion.... Chase customer service is top notch and they know their stuff. They won't talk to her though, just the account holder. They're happy to add the info but thankfully don't do it automatically so that people like myself can have an AU without sharing credit. I luv Chase. So far...
Don't give up... simply call Chase customer service and ask to speak with a manager, and put on a little bit of a "friendly buy frustrated" tone of voice. I was facing the same problem until I spoke with the right person. Tell them you accepted being added as an AU on this account specifically BECAUSE Chase reports AU info to the bureaus, and that you expect it to be done in your case. Be prepared to give them your social security number and date of birth, along with any other info they need, and then ask them to expidite the data to all three bureaus using their electronic system.
You CAN get it done, you just gotta "get a little pushy" but remember to stay friendly about it all. Good luck and let us know how it goes!

Very Nice CL! Which Amex card?
swingsetfun wrote:Well, since I didn't get very far with Chase we decided to open an account with AMEX and did in online and I was able to add myself and my husband to her account and it asked for SS#'s on us so I assume they will report it. (I Hope anyway) We got approved in seconds for $26,000! (OMG, if only my credit was that good!!!) So at least this will show some available credit for me. That is my biggest problem right now is that I have NO credit available. I don't owe anything, but all of my accounts are closed. (stupid, I know) we went thought CCCS. I hope this works!thanks for the info!!!
