I don't know if your kids have ever received those "credit cards" that are for use on the internet only. A couple of times mine have been given those Vanilla Mastercards. Unfortunately, they spend less than the full amount and they are left with $5.02 on it, which of course you can't really use. In the past, they have ended up expiring or been drained down to zero with service fees. Well finally I had a brainwave and yesterday we made an on-line donation to a charity for that little amount. It seems silly in a way to give such a small amount, but I'd rather they have it, than these huge credit card companies. I'm glad I finally figured out a solution, as this has always been a pet peeve of mine.

I have heard that if it's under $10.00, the store can give you the change. I think you have to ask though.

That's good to know about the regular cards, but the ones we've had could only be used for online purchases.
