Authorized User Tradelines are an excellent way for some people to add some high-quality credit history to their credit file quickly. The Federal Reserve Board B in 1975 required Credit Card companies to add spouses to credit cards and report the credit card information to the credit bureaus for the authorized users as if it was their own.Today, most credit card companies still follow this practice pretty closely, except they no longer ask your relationship status to the authorized user.This has created an opportunity for people to sell their Tradelines to people who were not born into wealthy families and want the same advantages of someone born into a wealthy family.
Once you purchase an authorized user Tradeline, it is placed on your credit file as an open account, and after two months the account is closed.While the account is open, you will see an increase in your available revolving credit, which will increase your credit limit and give you a better credit utilization ratio.These will all positively affect your credit score while the account is open for those two months.
However, you should anticipate giving those credit score points back at the end of the 60 days once the account is closed and your credit utilization goes back to its original percentage.This is good to keep in mind if you are looking to apply for a loan or a credit card that you did not qualify for before the Tradeline credit score increase.You will need to time your application during that two-month window to maximize your credit score and to qualify for the lowest interest rates.But here's the best part…
All of the perfect payment history and the length of credit history that was added to your credit file will still be there after the account is closed.This is the real advantage of Tradelines, especially for people with limited to no credit because you can go from nothing to perfect and lengthy credit history, literally overnight.
Broad regulations and legal loopholes allow for you to benefit from being an authorized user on another personal tradeline (also known as a credit piggybacking).
The issuing bank reports the positive credit history including the age of the account, the limit of the tradeline and the positive payment history to the select credit bureaus of their determination.
In other words, once you are added as an authorized user to an account, the history of that account appears on your credit report and will be treated as if it was your credit history.
It makes no difference whether the parent adds his or her child or a perfect stranger. That father or mother with the credit card can add anyone they want onto their credit card as an authorized user.
The practice of piggybacking credit has existed since 1974ish. It is made possible by a law that was signed into law that year called the Equal Credit Opportunity Act of 1974.
The Federal Reserve Regulation B, which implements the 1974 Equal Credit Opportunity Act, requires that information on spousal authorized user accounts be reported to the credit bureaus and considered when lenders evaluate credit history. Since creditors generally furnish to the credit bureaus information on all authorized user accounts, without indicating which are spouses and which are not, credit scoring modelers cannot distinguish spousal from nonâ€spousal authorized user accounts. This effectively requires that all authorized user accounts receive similar treatment. Consequently, becoming an authorized user on an old account with a good payment history, may improve an individual credit score, potentially increasing access to credit or reducing borrowing costs. As a result, the practice of a piggybacking credit has developed.
