I was told this week by a rep that they can overnight AU cards only if the AU's ss# is on file.

I have no idea if he made that up or not. Just mentioning it as a data point.

Chase don't recognize authorized users at all.
100% wrong. Explain how someone gets a Chase card with only being AU's on other cards? Instant approval to boot!

When human eyes look at it of course it is different. The trick is when someone is just starting out you want instant approvals. Adding AU's works great for this with all CC issuers including Chase. Once you get a few cards in your own name then let the games begin. This is not a sprint but a marathon. No more lessons today young grasshopper.  :)
