AU question

My son in law has several CC with low balances and excellent pay history (not including the recent Home Depot fiasco).  Would my daughter benefit being added as an AU to the CCs with lower balances?  How do we go about making sure a "hard pull" would not be done on the ones we want to add her to?

Re: AU question

Hard pulls are never done for AUs.  Son-in-law needs to call CCC and tell them to add her as an AU
 
Tell him he is NOT to ask for a joint account  just AU!

Re: AU question

Thank you very much.  Is it possible some of the CCC may not want to add her without it being joint?

Yes but I have not heard of any. Each may have their own policy
