I have no idea. I've always had a bank account.

Though I know this isn't what you asked, but if you can't afford food, how are you going to afford a dog? How are you going to pay off the credit card?

Why on earth would you get a dog when you can't even afford groceries for your family? How are you planning on paying the credit card?

I would worry about getting a job and getting your priorities straight first.

He's looking at filing bankruptcy, you're on food stamps and you can barely buy your kid's pull ups...but you want a dog?

Honey, do you know how much a dog costs? Food gets pricey, there are vet bills, dog licenses, chew toys, heartworm meds, grooming, etc. And that's assuming your dog is normal and doesn't require any special medications or food.

And if you don't have money, how are you going to prepay the card?

You need to prioritize. Do you not realize that you guys are truly STRUGGLING? And have you thought about getting a part time job?

All ridiculousness aside, accountnow is a prepaid card, no bank account required. Of course, you have to find a way to get money to put on it.

Side note - why do you want to hide money or spending from the person providing for you? That doesn't bode well.
