Limited/Bad/Fair Credit

I applied for a credit card and asked for an extra card in my husband’s name, so he can use it too. His credit score is basically nonexistent, so he isn’t able to get a credit card on his own. Will being an authorized user on my account help him establish credit?

Answered by , at

Unfortunately, the card is still unavailable in Maryland. But the company is working on it and there is a chance their cards will be available in this state. They've started accepting applications from D.C. residents recently, so the chances are not zero. Continue reading
