About this app

Goalsetter is a mobile banking, debit card, and investing app that focuses on educating the next generation with fun financial quizzes based on pop culture, putting them on the path to financial freedom. Whether you're a teen wanting financial independence, a parent wanting to start saving with their kids, or an adult who wants to jump-start their financial literacy, we have features for every need.

Goalsetter is a financial technology company, not a bank. Banking services are provided by Webster Bank, N.A., Member FDIC and Cashola Prepaid Debit Mastercard® is issued by Pathward, N.A. fka MetaBank, N.A., Member FDIC.

Goalsetter - Debit Card & Banking For All
With Goalsetter, everyone can take control of their finances, learning money management skills to work their personal finances. With a debit card for everyone, you can learn to earn, spend smartly and save. Parents can send money to their kids' and teens' debit cards, control when it's active, and have complete insight into their transaction's history. Together, families can establish smart spending and saving habits. Our "Goalsetter" plan includes all features below except our "Goalsetter Gold" investment accounts.

Goalsetter Gold - Investing & Stocks For The Whole Family
"Goalsetter Gold" is our new brokerage plan allowing you and your family to buy and sell stocks and Exchange-Traded-Funds (ETFs). Not only will you be able to own a piece of companies, but you also have access to our education tools to learn more about the stock market and investing.
Our "Learning Mode" will teach you all the essential stock trading terms with videos that answer all the questions you were afraid to ask so you can become an Investment Master, and you can toggle on and off in the dashboard as you need. There's a matching quiz you can take for each video you watch to become an Investment Master - so study up!

"Goalsetter Gold" is our all-access plan for all the features we have to offer!

Financial Literacy via Memes & Games
Our financial literacy quizzes are made for all family members of all ages - for adults, teens, kids, and tweens. All quizzes are mapped to national financial literacy standards, so every individual learns healthy money habits, financial language, and math skills through pop culture memes and gifs.

Chores & Allowance
Since we know that every family does allowance differently, we've set up Allowance Rules that let you give allowance according to your family's philosophy. You set up the amounts to pay each kid and link your bank account, and we'll make the weekly allowance transfers to your kids' Goalsetter accounts. No more IOUs required!

Savings & Goal Tracker
Kids and parents can set up goals within the app to save and track progress for long-term goals, whether a rainy day or a vacation fund. Families can contribute to these goals, and they also serve as a continued reminder for kids to be setting aside money for the future. Once the goal is met, the funds can be cashed out and used. Don't worry though; we know that plans change and life happens. You can cash out from a goal at any time.

Safety & Security
Goalsetter uses 128-bit encryption, and we do not store any of your personal information and do not move money without your authorization.

I just saw this on shark tank and thought what a great idea. However, upon downloading the app, I logged into my bank via the app and it couldnt verify it, even though it connected through the app. Ok fine, it said I could do the slower version by 2 small deposits, nope still dont work. I dont use a major bank, I use chime which is still a bank account with a routing number and account number. It should have advised it doesnt use prepaid cards/banks before having me enter private info.

Hi Cecile, This is the founder and CEO, Tanya. We apologize you were not able to connect your Chime account. We are working on special accomodations for our users with online banks and would love for you to try out a new solution. Can you please email me at tanya@goalsetter.co so we prioritize your request and give you a GoalCard for your trouble?

Ok, so this app is not perfect, but I think it is the best of its kind. You can pay your kids allowance, they have an optional debit card that is free unless you haven't used it in the last 12 months, and my kids love it! Only suggestion- if you are going to use the Auto-Save feature, set the lump sum to be transferred and then divvy it up between goals. It does separate transactions for each goal if you try to do it that way.

We've been having issues with the App for over a week now. Everytime we try time we try to access the quiz, the app automatically shuts down and defaults back to the sign in screen. I sent an email to customer service and awaiting a response. An email was sent on 5.18 and 5.23 to that same email address after post this review. Yes I received an automated reply to th 5.18 email. I just forwarded a screenshot to you from another email account to see if that message reaches you.
