# 2977 The Doubt of the Benefit

Q. I pay for the lunch of workers fixing my house, and they usually order pepperoni pizza, or other foods and sandwiches that contain cooked meat and milk products. I lend them my credit card to pay for it. Is that allowed since bassar vechalav is prohibited in benefit?
A. Horav Shlomo Miller’s Shlit’a opinion is that you should ask them to pay with their credit card and you will then refund the money they spent to them. That way you did not directly acquire the bassar vechalav, and don’t derive any benefit from it.
Rabbi A. Bartfeld as advised by Horav Shlomo Miller and Horav Aharon Miller Shlit’a
