Education + experience

Greenlight creates teachable moments for parents raising financially-smart kids.

With the Greenlight app, kids monitor spending, watch their savings grow and learn to make real world trade-off decisions.

Debit, not credit

Greenlight is a debit card for kids, not a credit card. Parents load money on the card from a funding source they choose.

Kids can’t spend money they don’t have, which means no overdrafts. No surprise fees. No worries.

Give a greenlight

Parents can choose exactly where and how much their kids can spend with their Greenlight card. Stores, restaurants, websites. You name it.

Send money in an instant

Parents can instantly transfer money to their child’s card for allowance, chores or day-to-day expenses. Kids can also request cash on the spot for whatever may come up.

Chores and allowance

The Chores feature helps parents easily manage weekly or one-time chores and motivates kids to get them done.

Parents can set weekly or monthly allowance payments once kids complete chores. Funds can automatically be distributed to Spend, Save and Give accounts.

New ways to save

Parents can work with kids to make saving a habit. Kids can watch their savings grow, and use the app to track progress toward savings goals they set.

Parent-Paid Interest empowers parents to demonstrate the magic of compound interest so kids can learn the long-term benefits of saving.

Safety is the top priority for Greenlight.

Turn card off anytime

Both parents and kids can turn the card off with a single touch within the Greenlight app. (btw, did you check the jean pocket?)
