Keeping track of relative's credit card purchases?

Thread Details

My mom would like to know what my sister, who lives across the country, buys with her credit card. She has her login information so seeing HOW MUCH she spends isn't a problem, it's the "what she spends it on." Is there any way to have this done? Besides asking my sister, because she won't tell her.

Hire a private investigator, look at her credit card statements, hidden cameras/microphones in her car/purse/house

Quite simply you are trying to attack this problem from the wrong angle.

No. Unless it's a store card there's no way to find out what was purchased unless you can find a way to call each vendor and con them into providing that info.

Unless your sister is a minor, I don't see how it's any of mom's business. If it's mom's account and she doesn't trust her to spend responsibly, then remove her from the account.

As the username says ...
If your sister is an adult and she didn't coerce your mom to give her an AU card, why does your mom have to know what she is buying? Only reason I can think of is she wants to be in control of everything. She will be disappointed if she can't see an itemized list of everything she's buying.

If it's a big issue to her and gives her sleepless nights not knowing and she won't tell, best to deactivate her AU card. Problem solved.

does your mom pay your sisters credit card bill(s)?
