Can you be an AU and a primary card holder for the same card product?

Can you be an AU and a primary card holder for the same card product?

Greetings,

 

In hopes of possibly extending my credit history, I was debating about being added as an authorized user (AU) of a family member’s Chase Freedom card.

 

Question is:  Can I be both an AU and the primary card holder for the same card product?  Also, is there a rule such as “you can only be both an AU and a primary card holder only if you apply for the card yourself after becoming an AU” or vice versa?

 

I am biding my time until I can app again sometime in the fall or winter of this year, and most likely will app for either of the Chase Freedom cards, but I don’t want to create any unnecessary hassles if I decide to be added as an AU.
