Adding yourself as authorized user

Many of the posters on DD forum are taking advantage of Small Business Saturday by creating many AU cards for their AMEX accounts. Currently, you can even add yourself as AU, but if you do it online you have to use your SSN. What are the credit score and utilization implications of this? Does it add on to your personal total credit line? Will it make it harder to apply for other cards due to higher CL?

As I understand, there are no implications on AUs score and CL. The account still remains tied to primary applicant only.
