Can my son use MY credit card while he's studying abroad?

Jump to last reply

My son will be studying in London next semester, and traveling throughout Europe. He's new to the world of credit, and has a credit limit of only $500 on his student Visa card. Can I get a credit card in MY name and then let him take that card to Europe? (Of course my son thinks this is a great idea--he can rack up the charges while mom stays home and pays the bills!) I also plan to open a joint bank account with him and he'll take the ATM card. I'll deposit money as needed, but will keep the balance pretty low in case the card gets stolen and the account hacked. Thanks for any ideas.
