    Pre paid credit cards, like Visa (or Visa gift card) has a fee to it. You may get a card for $50 and pay $55 for it. Wal Mart has the best fee prices.

    Then you use the card almost anywhere. Online or in a store.

    If you are over 18 set up a bank account and get a related DEBIT card. {Technically no such thing as a prepaid credit card.} {You might qualify for a SECURED credit card - but only get IF you are already good at handling money.} For online - use your parents credit card and repay them. For all else, pay cash.

    You're better off using prepaid gift cards or a debit card.
