About this app

WHAT'S NEW:

- Summer job? Meet direct deposit. Now you can use your app to set up direct deposit to get paid on time, every time.

Greenlight is the debit card and banking app for kids and teens, complete with an educational investing platform for the whole family. With the Greenlight app, kids and parents have companion apps with two different experiences. Kids learn to save, earn, invest, spend and give — with parent approval on every transaction. Parents can choose the exact stores where their kids spend, manage chores and allowances, set parent-paid interest rates and more. Parents can also invest for their kids’ futures — college, first car or any other goals.

Kids can’t spend what they don’t have. No overdraft fees. No overspending. No surprises.

PARENTS CAN:
- Invest for college — or anything else — with an easy, flexible platform
- Send money instantly
- Receive real-time alerts of kids’ spending activity
- Turn card on or off from the app
- Manage chores
- Approve kids’ investments
- Automate allowances
- Put limits on spending
- Set parent-paid interest rates
- Manage access and budgets for ATM withdrawals

KIDS AND TEENS CAN:
- Track balances in Save, Earn, Invest, Spend and Give accounts
- Receive money from friends and family
- Manage their own budgets
- Learn to invest in stocks of their choice and research their favorite companies
- Set savings goals
- Set up direct deposit for their paychecks
- Use Apple Pay, Google Pay and Samsung Pay

SAFETY FIRST. AND SECOND. AND THIRD
- Greenlight comes with an EMV chip and parent-controlled PIN
- No cash back at the register to curb unmonitored spending
- Automated blocked categories for unsafe spending
- Greenlight uses several security features to help protect your accounts from unauthorized access
- Funds available through the Save, Earn, Give and Spend functionality are FDIC-insured, through our partner Community Federal Savings Bank
- Funds available through the Invest functionality are not FDIC insured but may be SIPC insured through our partner DriveWealth, LLC.

Our Support Team is available to help 24 hours a day, 7 days a week

I had an issue locating the funding history on the app. So i contacted the developers. They responded by personally reaching out by phone, and then by email when my phone went to voice mail. Their instructions were perfect and easy to follow, allowing me to find the funding history with ease. Thank you Greenlight for your dedication to your customers.

I have been really unimpressed with greenlight. The app is fine, but their systems seem poor. It took several tries to get a bank account attached (we eventually had to use a secondary account because they couldn't communicate with our credit union.). We had to re-request cards. The first batch never arrived. We've gotten one of two for the second batch. We're done with our free month & have had basically no functionality. I have two stars b/c people on their help really try to help.

If I could give zero Stars I would. This is potentially a great app but it is full of bugs like it's still in beta. When you try to email support to report problems or offer suggestions for improvement, you get someone who can barely speak English in another country and go round and round until you give up because they don't read any of the previous conversations in the thread. For example, I've set up recurring weekly chores every day of the week, and some weeks, the days are randomly missing!
