Will someone adding me as an authorized user ont heir CC account help my credit history?
If my girlfriend were to add me as an authorized user on her credit card account will it help my credit profile and credit score in regards to the "age" of my credit, credit utilization, and payment history. Also, if she had a couple late payments back in 2009 would it still benefit me to have her add me as an authorized user or would it do more harm than good? Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
