Depends on the credit limit of the card and if it helps drop your utilization under 30%, even better under 10%. I'd say average of 20-60 points

It depends on your current credit profile. It depends on the age of the account you will be added to, it depends on the credit line as already said, it depends on how much of that credit line is utilized. There are too many factors to take a reasonable guess. If the card you will be added to is an older card in good standing with zero or very little utilization it should help, but if it were a fairly new account or maxed out or utilized heavily or has any late payments associated with it, it would probably hurt your credit.
