The kid & I have joint accounts at NFCU so I transfer her monthly allowance/expenses by EFT. She has her own ATM card and credit card so I haven't seen any reason to add yet another card for her to keep track of.
I co-signed her credit-card application as the responsible adult and we each have a card with our own name on it (same account number) but Citi takes their payment out of her checking account. When she turns 18 I'm going to have to see if there's some way to get me off the account and put it entirely in her name for her own credit history.
The book written on E-R.org, "The Military Guide to Financial Independence and Retirement", on sale now! For more info see "About Me" in my profile.
I don't spend much time here anymore, so please send me a PM. Thanks.
