as i was watching my 1 yr old tonight i wondered whether i could add her onto one of my cc accounts and have a card issued in her name? if so, i could use that card on her behalf for the next two decades, which would leave her with some awesome credit at, say, 21 years old. there must be a reason nobody's doing this. is there a minimum age a person has to be in order to be added to an account? thanks.
