One of the things that I struggle with is teaching my children to be responsible with money.
(Another area of struggle is cleaning up after themselves. I don't know that AmericanExpress can help with this.)
AmericanExpress has created a new reloadable card designed especially for teenagers and their parents. Entitled the PASS Card, it is a debit card designed to help your teen learn to budget and help them to manage their money.
From their materials:
PASS is a convenient and safe way for teens/young adults to spend without carrying a lot of cash. We hope PASS will be a catalyst for communication and conversations between parents and their teens about responsible budgeting, money and financing. For teens and young adults, PASS will be a new way to pay for things without using cash, a debit or credit card. PASS has built-in controls so that both parents and teens can manage spending responsibly. There is no risk of overdraft fees or impact to the Cardmember’s credit.
From now until April 15, if you purchase a PASS card loaded with at least $25, you will have an additional $25 loaded on to the card - for a total of $50. Use the promotion code SS25 to get the extra $25.
It's a win-win for everyone - you can help your child learn to responsibly shop, teach your child about budgeting, AND get some extra cash - it's always better when the cash doesn't have to come out of your pocket!
