I have a few years' credit history, and most of the time a FICO score of 780 to 820. I believe my spouse never had any credit accounts. If I add her as an authorized user of one of my credit cards, can she establish her credit from using the card??

  • There are a bunch of other questions in the Related list in the sidebar to the right, as well. – Joe Apr 27 '16 at 20:43
  • @Joe I saw that question but it is about improving each other's credit score between 2 people. I am asking if doing so can establish someone's credit score, as the person has no credit history. – Dylan Czenski Apr 27 '16 at 20:46
  • The answer in that question is the answer to your question: yes, it may help a bit. – Joe Apr 27 '16 at 20:47
  • I added a slightly more generic answer on that question that should apply to your case as well. – Joe Apr 27 '16 at 20:53
