    I wouldn't give my helper a credit card either. I always give her cash to go shopping on Monday for the week. I have a spreadsheet of what we spend weekly so I can budget how much to give her. If we are out of town and she needs money for emergencies, she can always call my mom or sister.

    Does Park'n'Shop accept a cheque? I hadn't thought of this.

    Yes, they do. We do this quite often with our helper.

    Definitely not. Giving dh a credit card is like playing with fire, you might get burned.

    Thanks everyone for your advice. The general wisdom is 'Don't be so stupid/naive!'. Anyway, I didn't know that P'n'S will accept cheques, so I'll try this. Failing that, a store card would be a good option.

    Kashismum, PnS no longer issues store card unless you have an existing account/old store card with them.

    Thanks, LittleLams. I did check their website but everything on that site seems to relate only to online shopping. When I called Customer Service, they didn't know how to answer and asked me to call the store.
