  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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!

  • 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!

    I have been using Greenlight for about six months now and it has been a great experience. It really does help me manage and teach my kids how to properly use money, and of course, my kids love having a debit card to use. I only had to call customer service for a security freeze once, and the service was great and it was fixed promptly.

    Lifesaver for parents of teens

    We started using Greenlight for our 16-year-old because it was an easy way to transfer money and keep track of her spending. We liked it so much that we also got one for our 14-year-old.

    I have a 15 and 11-year-old. We use the allowance feature for our oldest, and our youngest is getting the hang of paying for things here and there. The best experience recently was our son using Greenlight on his school trip - what a relief to have an instant way to get him money in a pinch. Plus we knew he was alive via spending alerts.

  • Parent user

    We have Greenlight cards for both of our kids. It's an incredibly convenient way to help them manage their money, for us to know how and where they are spending, and to make sure they always have funds for essentials when we're not with them.

  • Love my Greenlight

    Greenlight is great. Not only do I use it with my kids to help them with their money but I have also replaced my 80-year-old mother's debit card with the Greenlight card. This way I can be assured of where she is using it and can have peace of mind that no one one will steal it or her number from her. In addition, when she loses her Greenlight card (like she has already), with a simple click on my phone, I know that it is turned off.

  • My child loves Greenlight

    Greenlight debit card has become part of my family's daily lifestyle. As a family, we set a monthly budget for clothes, candy, Amazon "doo-dads" and "kids stuff" all to fit in one bottom line number per month. The Greenlight card has helped our daughter become fiscally responsible and saves my wife and I a ton of angst each week trying to remember to have cash on hand! Keep up the improvements because we will have this card for many years to come!

  • Great tool - got us out of several jams

    We were never comfortable just handing out cash to our kids, and giving them a credit card when they were young seemed very inappropriate and inconsistent with the kind of parents we want to be. Greenlight's control gives the kids the ability to spend without cash and gives us the oversight that we want.

    On three occasions, we had a child stuck without cash and Greenlight saved the day. Transferring funds for specific purposes was simple and instant. We recommend this service without hesitation.
