Product Details:
  • Designed for parents and teens. There are separate accounts where parents and teens can check card activity and balances. Text alerts can also help users manage money.
  • Subaccounts. The primary user must be at least 18, but authorized users may be as young as 13, and there may be up to 3 cards per account.
  • American Express branding. It’s a trusted name and comes with protections – such as roadside assistance – that may give parents peace of mind.
  • Easy to reload. Funds can be added via direct deposit, a linked bank account or cash or check via Green Dot MoneyPak or Vanilla Reload Network Card.
  • Parental controls. Parents (primary accountholders) can see when and where money is spent and may also turn off ATM access or suspend use of the card.

Things We Like

No monthly maintenance fees, the availability of subaccounts, text alerts and parental controls.

Things We Dislike

If you don’t have a linked bank account or direct deposit, you’ll pay a fee to add funds via Green Dot MoneyPak or Vanilla Reload Network Card. If you’re loading relatively small amounts of money frequently, this could add up.
