Re: Authorized Users and Credit Scoring?

What is the best credit card to be an authorized user on?  By that question I mean, fastest at reporting.


 

All my cards (Visa, MC, Amex, Discover) thankfully report fast at this time. EX picks them up in 1-2 days after the statement date (the end of the billing cycle), EQ 3-4 and TU 4-5.

It wasn't always so, as Amex would take close to a month, but not anymore. I can generally predict quite accurately when myFICO's Score Watch will send me an alert with an updated score.

Are you living within your means?
