Let me get straight to the point, Im 15, and dont know much about credit cards.

I would like to purchase band tees and a hoodie, and I have the money to. But, I cant find a store within reasonable distance to purchase the stuff with. So now, Im thinking, I would have to order this stuff over the interwebz.

Pit, is there a way I can go about this, like putting money on a "temporary" credit card, like one of those visa giftcards, that is just like money, just "on" a card? And if so, would a company that sells merch on the internet take that o_O?

When You do get a card you have to make sure that you give everyone your PIN number that way if you lose it then we can all help you find it!!!
It's all just a joke

Well I got a debit card issued to me by my school. But I would think you can open up a bank account, deposit money, and ask for a debit card. That way you can use your bank funds without checks

A debit card is usable like a credit card, except you can only use the money you actually have.

However you can still overdraw your account, which leads to HUGE fees.

Get a debit card. At 15, you're probably gonna ruin your life with a credit card.


Actually, a credit card's gonna ruin your life at any age.

Second thought, why don't you ask your parents? I mean they are more reliable than some of the pit responses. I mean a lot of the pit is the same age.

pretty sure you have to be 18 to get a debit (im 19 and i don't have or want one, not for now at least)

you might as well get those visa giftcards, they work for online purshases. the only downside is the activation fee

edit: you can ruin your life...or at least go broke just as easily with a debit too, not just a credit, which is why i don't want one. its seems so easy just to swipe it to your debit card and not remember how much you have left in your account, then the next thing you know, you're broke.
Yeah, uh-huh...that's what they all say.

Visa gift card. I got one for Christmas for $40 and I bought a bunch of games off of Steam using it. You need to register the card online to put your address on too.

Wait... never mind. Screw whatever anybody has said about getting any sort of card.

Seriously, get your parents to do it. I got my brother to order some stuff for me a few months ago and my mom preordered The Empyrean for me a few weeks ago. It's not that hard...

Tell your dad that you'll stop looking at his porn collection if he buys you the stuff.

Have this conversation in front of your mom.

Seems like some people rely on their parents to buy them **** a little too much. Unless they meant give the money to your parents to get it.

I paid both my brother and my mom back right away. I just didn't have the means to buy it so they mediated the transaction with their superior monetary resources.

I believe you just expanded for yourself.

You're fifteen. You're too young for credit cards anyway.

Ask your parents to buy the stuff and give them the money. Viola!
