No, authorized users should not report to the credit bureaus since they are not legally resposible for the debt incurred with the credit card. It will not have any impact on your credit score since authorized users are not reported.

What does your credit score have to be to get a credit card?

This completely depends on the bank you are going to and their guidelines. Currently, most banks are turning people down with credit score below 660. If your score is not high enough, one of my favorite ways to boost a person's credit card score is to teach them about the magic of authorized users. Authorized usersare people who have permission to use other people's credit cards. For instance, your husband might have a Citi card. His name, and his credit score, was used to apply for the account, but you have permission to use the account.Becoming an authorized user is a powerful way to boost your credit score because you get to borrow the account holder's good credit history. If you are an authorized user on a credit card in good standing, your credit score will reflect the credit card's positive payment history by increasing. Beware, though: If you are an authorized user on a credit card in poor standing, your credit score will reflect the credit card's negative payment history by dropping.


How long after an authorized user can you get your own credit card?

Being an authorized user no longer has an impact on your credit score like it used to. In the past, you were able to be added as an authorized user on a credit card, and all of the credit history and credit limit would be reported on your credit report as if it was your credit effectively obtaining unearned credit for the authorized individual. A few years ago the credit reporting industry changed, and no longer recognize an authorized user as credit responsible and therefore it has little to no impact on your credit score. If you would like to obtain credit from this card, contact the card issuer and request to be added as a joint user. If you are jointly responsible for the credit, it will report to the bureaus and impact your score. Approval is still required, but it is typically easier to be approved when you are already and authorized user on a card.



If you have a credit card only in your name will it affect or show on your husbands credit report?

What type of credit card to become an authorized user to help raise credit score?

Having an authorized user card does not help the authorized user's credit bureau score. ie) if I had good credit and I gave someone an authorized user card, that person's purchases would be on my statement and I would be responsible for the other person's purchases. If I don't pay for the other person's purchases, it would reflect on my credit bureau negatively as not paying on time and be charged interest.


Are there any credit cards that won't negatively affect my credit score?

Your best bet would be to close those older credit cards. While it may take some time, your credit score can be improved.

If the husband adds the wife as a "joint" it will show on her credit report but will most likely not be counted against her if she tried to apply for a loan. If the husband adds the wife as an "authorized user" it will not even show on her credit report because she has no legal obligation to pay the credit card bills, but she has the right to use the card.


Does cancelling a credit card affect your credit score?

Yes, canceling a credit card always reduces your credit score. It never improves your credit score if you cancel a credit card account.

However, if it makes sense to you to close the card, and you do not plan large purchases in the near future, your credit will recover without your feeling the difference.
