My Dad has pretty much everything he needs, but on a fixed retirement income, I thought paying part of his bill would be a gift he could use. Is there a way to do that as a present where I can pay it without his advanced knowledge? With privacy, I can't think of how dish would allow that. I hate the "cash" thing. He gives all of his kids cash. Giving him cash back seems silly to me. I prefer to give something he can have in his hand. Some kind of dish based gift card would work. Maybe a credit to his account or a gift card from Dish?
