How to change the person who is paying off a laptop?

Hello, 

 

Earlier in tthe year, my mother was the one that had bought a brand new laptop from best buy for my younger brother. They decided to choose a payment plan to help pay off for the laptop; however, because my brother was not 18 yet we could not put the payment plans under his name. 

 

He just turned 18 a month ago and would like to start making his own payments. Is there a way that we could change the account from my mom's name to my brother's name? 

 

Thank you in advance.

Your best bet is to simply have your brother give your mother the money for the payments.

 

Or take out a loan and pay off the laptop then make payments on the loan.  It is not likely the credit department will change the name on a line of credit.
