I use this for allowance for my kids and it takes all the work out of it for me. I can use my credit card to fund their accounts and I don't have to worry about having cash and they don't have to worry about losing their cash. They are really learning the value of a dollar having to pay tax and shipping for items they buy. I just wish there was a kids app so they can keep track of their own spending. Maybe there is and I missed it.
Easy to use...my son used his card for the first time yesterday and his face just lit up...he feels like he has all the power right between his finger tips... Unfortunately Im still the keeper of his card at the age of 10 he still has a habit of laying things down and forgetting about it... responsibilities is still a work in progress
I totally love this app. so easy for me to put money in my kids account and I don't have to worry about them losing cash. They sure feel responsible and funny how people and cashiers stare at my 9 yr old using a card to purchase things.
I use this app to dole out my children's allowance because they are too young to get a debit card at a traditional bank and the prepaid cards have insane fees. Definitely recommend for parents who want to see where their kids money goes to.
I got 2 cards for my niece and nephew and they love being able to make their own purchases. It also teaches them about money management. They really think twice about what they want to spend money on now.
This appears to be working as a normal credit card and the setup was easy. I got a text as soon as our child made a purchase. You have to load your parent account with cash from time to time to cover the allowance withdrawals, so you control whether cash leaves your bank account.
