This all sounds ridiculous. If some random guy becomes an AU on a credit card. If his SS was not supplied, there's NO way to track him...you cant do a credit pull on somebody who has no credit.

Does an authorized user have potential to drag down the primary users credit if he/she subsequently gets other cards in their own name (due to getting history by joining your account for some months) and uses them irresponsibly. Would like to help some relatives earn a history but don't want problems down the road if they hurt their own credit later on. Furthermore is it better to add on users to Amex cards spread out over time? What's pace to add on without triggering F/R ( they won't be using cards just will have them by me to establish history for them). I have multiple Amex cards.

I remember reading somewhere about some cards have a fee to add an AU, can I add an AU ( or 2 ) on my SPG without any fees?
And will their spendings count to reach the 25k in 6 months?

I just got in the mail the 2 cards for the au that I added to my SPG account, when I tried to set up these 2 cards online I got a msg that I can't have these cards linked to my online account I goto create a separate user name & pass, any idea what exactly this is? Is the spg different then other ones or what?

You don't need to create a new online account if YOU want to manage all cards, you can see them all by logging in with your current user ID and password

Only if you want to give access to an AU to manage just their card that's when you will need a new log in for them

I believe this is the correct answer. Unless I am confused by your question and his answer.
