Re: Amazon Prime

Apply using her account, under her name. Once approved, add yourself as authorized user.

Just remember that this means applying using her credit report,  so the app will be judged on that, and any HPs and new accounts go on her record.   So make sure that makes sense!

Re: Amazon Prime

Another option may be to convert your wife's prime account to a household account and then share the prime benefits with your own Amazon account. You could then apply for the card under your own name.

Re: Amazon Prime

Convert to a household account. By far the better option.

Re: Amazon Prime

Someone beat me to it...   convert it to a household account and add yourself to the Prime.. then you can apply under your own name... and could add her as a AU... But if you attach the card for the household you dont even need to do that.... to both use it on amazon under your own account..   Thats how I apped for Amazon Prime Visa.....  Hope that makes some sense... If your already attached to her Prime account  as a family you can app as yourself... Perhaps someone on here can explain it better...
