Description

The debit card that empowers teens to make the best financial decisions. Automate allowance, get spending notifications, create and reward chores, and never have to run to the ATM for cash again.

Current gives teens everything they need to learn how to budget money, including savings goals, round-up savings, and the ability to check their balance so they always know how much they have to spend. They can earn money from chores, pay or request money from friends, and even give to charity. Each teen account includes a Visa® chip and pin debit card, in their name, that allows teens to spend online, in stores, and use ATMs. It even works with Apple Pay.

Parents get visibility into their teens spending with real-time alerts that show where transactions are happening. You can instantly transfer money to your teen, no matter where they are. If they are out with friends, or traveling outside the country, sending them extra money is easy. Current takes only a few minutes to setup and conveniently works with your existing bank account.

I got two cards for my niece and nephew as a Christmas gift. I did it as a way to send them a little money each month for allowance to help my sister out while she was going to school.

My sister was also able to add herself as a parent. It took a little bit of time because the security feature for adding another adult to the count was a part of the process. I’d choose security over convenience any day.

I was surprised by the fact that the
kids actually watch their money and spending habits better with the card then when they had cash in hand.

My sister actually loves it more than the kids do and she tells everybody about it. The cards gives peace of mind because you can easily transfer the money in an emergency or transfer money out.

You’re able to view all the spending that goes in and out of the kids accounts. They also realized for the first time that when you use cards or checks or other items of payment there is an actual connection to real money. These items don’t offer unlimited access to money sources.

They both have become pretty frugal since getting the cards. When they go out to dinner with their friends, they order water or off the children’s menu sometimes if they’re not very hungry. Even more importantly they started paying attention to the cost of what they choose from the menu when they’re out with their mom or dad or grandparents who are on a limited budget.

👍👍

It's so great to hear that your niece and nephew have learned better spending habits. That's what we strive for; for teens to learn by doing. Make sure both you and your sister are using our referral program so you can be rewarded each time a parent signs up through your link.

Not pleased at all!!!

I was so excited to get this cc for my 12 year old for Christmas and it took over a month for it to come. So I did not get to use it for the 30 days and was still charged a $36 fee. I asked if it could be waived and the answer was no. Then there was a glitch with a payment where I tried to stop a payment on currents end it was showing it wasn’t there then the next thing I know I had to have my bank put the money back and was charged a overdraft fee 😡. The lady I emailed was not helpful and just said next time take a screenshot . Well Idid do that And it still showed safari could not open the page because the address is invalid I was looking around to see if there was another company similar. Not very pleased with current. Then I was given $50 because of the hassle of everything which was a nice gesture but my son still is not able to use this card. Now I have to have another bank added to my account so needless to say I’m going to withdraw the money and get my son another credit card cause it’s not that serious!!!

Hi Deanna, We're very sorry to hear about your experience! We understand how frustrating not receiving your card must have been, especially over the holidays. We were, in fact, experiencing card delivery delays in December, which have been resolved since then. We take our feedback very seriously so we appreciate you leaving us yours.

Great App for teens

Well, first of all, it is impossible in our state to get a debt card from any bank or local credit union for anyone under the age of 18. I love this app for its ability to teach our teens how to earn, save, and spend money. At first, I didn't understand that by transferring money into your primary account you are able to transfer monies quickly towards completed chores. However, if you transfer each chore from your bank account ACH payments will take approximately 2 days. I had no problems with the service line regarding questions or concerns that I encountered. I like seeing what my children buy right away. Most importantly, our children love it and begin to develop a sense of "adulting" in a tech savvy way.
