My wife has practically no credit, and we're trying to build it up. About 9 months ago I opened a Kohl's store credit card, and added her as a joint cardholder. We recently went through her credit report from experian, and there is no trace of it on her report. I know it's her report because the only item reported there is our main credit card on which she also is a joint cardholder.
What should we do to make sure it shows up on her report?
Is that a "joint cardholder" or just an additional card with her name? Most of the time you can just get an additional card with any name written on it. They don't even collect SSN. In this case it will not show up on a "joint" holder credit record.
