In the media, many times I've seen someone's credit card given to a fictional family member "for emergencies" and such. Also, on the Internet or mail-order, they very well expect that you may be using someone else's card when they ask for the cardholder's name. So it seems like it's OK to use someone else's credit card with permission. Am I right? Many times when growing up my own mother has given me the card to go get gas or get something paid for for her. Recently, my brother sent me to Circuit City to buy some 120GB HDDs. I asked if I was supposed to print his name or sign mine and they refused the sale saying only he could use the card. WTH?! Today, I was out of gas and money when dropping my brother off for work and I could not use my check card until a check had credited in the bank. The car is ours and so is the cost of filling it up, so he gave me his card again. The QuickTrip employee tried to ID me! Luckily, they went ahead and did it and I didn't even have to refuse to present ID, but what if they had insisted and I WASN'T the card holder? I figured I'd go ahead and get the low-down from you guys. Thnx.
