Ugh I need help with buying stuff... No it's not about getting the money. Answered

So I worked some odd jobs and saved up enough cash to buy a T-shirt that I've really wanted to buy.  However, it's only available online, and I only have dollar bills.  

The problem is that I need a credit card of sorts to buy stuff online, and I can't get a card at the bank due to the fact that I'm a minor according to my bank. Mom says she won't let me use her card unless I do some more work for her (WTF?), just using it and then giving the cash to her to reimburse isn't good enough.  The site I wish to buy from does not have any giftcards or any store cards or anything like that.

Any ideas?  


If you still ain't got this fixed, how about asking your friends "Can you buy me this if I give you the cash?"

Prepaid Visa. Buy with cash at a convenience store, use for online purchases.

You may want to look into using that Visa to set up a PayPal account, then switching the fund-source of the PayPal to your bank account.

Ugh the prepaid visa didn't work.  Any other suggestions?

Do you have your own bank account? You could set up a paypal account. You could find the shirt on a different site that accepts your bank card, you could ask an older friend to help you out.... show them the cash, ask them to buy it then pay them when it arrives. OR you could print it yourself :p What t-shirt is it?

there's no name on the card so its a issue of liability

Get your mum to buy it and give her the cash?

Didn't I just say that wasn't a viable solution above?  Read the topic before you comment and look like a fool.

.  Are you just naturally a jerk or do you have to work at it?

oh. if it was about the $$, then your could always do what i do... PROSTITUTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D
