  • You must have a bank account/credit line. Nosy, I know... but why on earth don't you have a bank account. I can't imagine!

  • Gotcha :) In that case, open an account with his check. It only takes $25 to open a checking account. There really isn't much you can do without one.

  • You should have a bank acct. just to start building up a credit score and if it comes to the point that you really need a car then having an acct. started will come in handy to get a car loan if ever need be.

  • If you have a credit card you can use that, but it would be easier if you had a bank account

  • You can also use one of those greendot money cards like you can buy at walmart, and just load money on it. That's what I do!
