Make an appointment with the bank, take passport with you, you will be able to set up a debit card for him, wont let him have an overdraft etc though

Debit card can be used in shops, online and via cash machine - shouldnt need a credit card

my daughters still uses cash, as she gets paid cash and doesnt have time to put into bank, so it is better for her, well until she loses it

I got a debit card at 13 i think and i hardly ever used it. Never used it in a shop or online. No need for a credit card IMO.

Not really, most places are still spamming my email with 'WE WILL DELIVER FOR XMAS FOR ORDERS UP TO XPM ON 23RD'

I like my email spam button a lot lately.
