  • Amazing functionality for parents and kids

    We’ve been Greenlight card users for the past year and couldn’t be happier with the functionality, controls, and ease of use for both my wife and I, as well our kids. Highly, highly recommend!

  • A great, easy to use app from a company with a strong mission!

    First, I love Greenlight because it was founded on a great story that powers a company with a true “doing good” mission to empower parents to teach financial literacy to the next generation. Who can’t get on board with that in this day and age?!

    The app is slick and simple, signup is super easy, and the parental controls are unique - down to a store level! Plus I really love the feature on the savings account where I can set my own parental interest rate (to higher than the going market banking rates) to truly incentive that tough-but-important delayed gratification saving behavior!

    Greenlight team - keep up the impressive work and keep on cranking out cool new features. I am a marketer who is dying to get a job on your team to help spread the word about this much needed next-gen product. Amazing things will happen when the world hears about this!

  • My Greenlight experience so far

    While Greenlight is designed for kids, I've also been using it as a way to help my elderly mother budget while still maintaining autonomy. This allows me to monitor her spending while also allowing her to keep her sense of independence. I'm a part of the sandwich generation (for those lucky enough to not know it's when you are responsible for taking care of your parent(s) and your kids), so this app has been a godsend. My two children love having their own card (apparently all their classmates are jealous!), and I can rest easy knowing that my children and mother are being taken care of. I had some trouble finishing registration but they helped me get set up in no time, I can't recommend enough!

  • My kids love it, and so do I

    Teaching kids about money isn't easy. At ages 10 and 7, their main experience with money is when they're given it by grandma and grandpa or get gifts on their birthdays. And when they do want to spend what they have, we buy stuff on Amazon so they don't get the experience of handing over cash. And that's where Greenlight comes in, and it has been a blessing. Now they can use an app to check their balance. We can encourage them to save with their parent-funded interest rate. And we can 'Greenlight' certain stores and amounts, to teach them how to spend responsibly. We get the benefit of text message alerts when they attempt or make a purchase, and they get to learn (with training wheels). Love it.

  • What a great product!

    I am so happy to have been referred by a fellow family member to check out and try Greenlight! With five kids it's always been difficult managing money with them. Finally, Greenlight provides a solution that allows my wife and I to manage cash for our kids in a much safer way, while also teaching the kids about money.

    I highly recommend Greenlight!

    Safe debit card for kids

    Greenlight is a great choice for parents looking to start their kids or teens on a debit card. The parental controls allow you to help your kids learn to manage their money in a safe way! You can even pick specific stores where your kids can spend their money. The options are great for families! I strongly recommend giving Greenlight a try!

    I find it hard to believe so many intense negative reviews on this site.

    We’ve been using Greenlight app and card for almost 2 years and have nothing but good things to say. My kids don’t carry cash anymore, just the Greenlight card, it’s easy to reload, easy to see where they are spending money and easy to turn off the card when they lose it...once.

    They use it online, Amazon and American Eagle and they have used it traveling in Mexico and Europe.

    I love and they do too.

    I have been using this app and cards for a couple of years now. I have NEVER had a problem! I started out with two cards, and recently added two more (I have 6 kids). This app is so easy to operate from the dashboard weather you're a parent or a child! I have NEVER had any unsafe issues having it connected to the bank account. I can verify after using it for years it is safe! Very safe and super handy!

    We had some issues getting started, however, it was an issue on our end. A rep by the name of Maxy Cordova helped me via email, and she was able to fix the issue. The rep was very prompt in responding. I recommend the card.

    It’s good in theory

    I loved the idea at first. But there are definitely a lot of frustrating things I’ve experienced in the few months we’ve been using it. For some reason, even though it’s an MC debit card, it won’t work with certain retailers online. Why not? It’s a debit card. Shouldn’t it work everywhere?! I don’t understand that. Plus my login is the same as my son's. Which means he also has access to the parent's wallet. If he wanted to, he could transfer money to himself or pull money from my bank account. Not that he would (I’d hope, lol), but any kid could. Again, huh? How does that make sense? I may cancel this and do something different. It’s infuriating to be paying a monthly fee for a debit card that ¼ of the time literally won’t work at random retailers.
