When you cancel the main card, will all the authorized cards be automatically canceled ?

So if when I'm applying I add an au it will only pull on my credit and not the au correct
amex asks for birth-date and has the option for SSN. as far as cc covered car rental insurance does an exact birth-date make a difference?(the rental companies certainly accept it the question is if u are really covered)

I added my friend as an autherized user with citi around 2-3 months ago ( he never had a cc but he has tried for a few)

did the 2-3 months help him enough to apply for his own now?

i am doing that right now and just want to hear from some people
what they think before i do anything
I was a authorized user for a card that had a lot of debt and i got declined because of it but i kept it because it inflated my credit history by 3x but in the end it didn't even help me because when i got A/A'd by chase they told me that i only have 6 years real CH and the rest is just inflated.

Yes, Chase don't recognize authorized users at all. The only way it should work with Chase is being a joint cardholder. (BTW, Citi don't allow joint cardholders anymore).

I added 11 AUs to my spg account within 2 weeks of each other, and received all the cards. I havent heard from Amex about being F/Red. When do you guys think I can breathe easier?

I added a few AUs to each Amex account I have. However, it seems that I mistakenly added the same family member twice to one Amex Gold account. She got two cc's, with different numbers, under the same account. Is it a problem for her to register them separately and use them?

I know there is another au thread but I can't find it.
Has anyone tried using real ss #'s for their kids who are too young to have a cc.  Would that work?  I have gotten a few letters recently requesting missing #'s.  I hope they're not trying to crack down.
