Parent's high limit credit card - stay an AU or not
I am just starting the journey of repairing my credit. I only have one secured card with a limit of 500 and I pay it off every month. I am an authorized user on my parents card that has a limit of 15,000 but is always within a couple hundred dollars of the limit. However, it is currently the oldest thing on my history and has never once had a missed payment.

Would having them remove me as an authorized user be better or worse for me? Thanks for any advice.
