Difficult to transfer money. BusyKid only allows one parent to be on the card. My husband's name and our daughter is listed on the card, so I'm unable to speak to customer service. Customer service says that my child or my husband can call in. How can a minor child call in for anything? This idea is crazy, and the creator is a single parent of 6 children, of course, so he invented this for single parents. I will just be adding my daughter to our chase account so she can have her own debit card where I can control funds.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

First of all, having one child and one parent on the card is a decision made by VISA and its card provider, not BusyKid. If we could have both parents, we certainly would. Secondly, your husband is the main account holder and that is why he is listed on the card and would be responsible for the account. I would need to go back and look at the communication between you and our support team, but if you are listed on the account, you should be able to address issues. If you will contact me at email@example.com, I can look this up. Finally, the man who came up with the idea for BusyKid is not single. He's a happily married father of six and BusyKid is created for any parent who wants their kids to learn how to manage money. I hope you will contact me so I can address the support issue. I wish you well and hope your daughter is enjoying her Chase account.
