Transcription of Authorized User Accounts
Fabulous shortcut for building credit. If they have Mother, Father, Brother, Sister, close friend that knows
them and trusts them. If they become an authorized user on a revolving account, they’ve got a Visa account
that’s good. They get the entire history of that account on their credit report, which is important and we’ll
discuss a little bit later why that is important as far as history and how they structure that. But, yeah,
that’s a great shortcut and we use that very frequently.
Let’s say you have no credit at all, OK? You’ve have a blank credit report. You need some credit, you come to
me. I say gee, I’ve got a $10,000 Visa that I hardly use here, I’ve had this thing for 10 years, ok. Great
credit. I’m going to put you as an authorized user on my Visa. I don’t have to give you a card. You never
have to use the credit line. You never have to see the statement. But my credit history from that credit card
is going to go on your credit report, so you’ve now got a $10,000 credit card on there with no late payments
that’s been there for 10 years.
