What is RoosterMoney?
Our mission is a simple one. We provide easy and engaging tools that help parents to raise money-wise kids.
We set out to sort a specific problem: Allowances are a great idea in principle. But finding a system that works for your family is hard, particularly when you’re juggling the weekly shop, work emails and soccer practice. And everything else for that matter.
We believe in the power of allowances to transform children’s understandings of money – whether you give them 20¢ a week or $10. And we think these lessons are best learned by keeping things simple for parents and fun for kids. Importantly we think the best things are learned together.
What Parents think:
“Pocket money issues used to stress me out no end and now it is all just FUN! I tried so many times writing things in cash books & various money boxes but nothing really worked until I found RoosterMoney.” Annabel, mom of 3.
“Perfect for parents like me who do not deal in cash.” Wendy, mom of 1.
“They used to receive ad-hoc amounts from friends and family and store it all over the place. Now they know exactly how much they have and how long they've been saving for.” Lucinda, mom of 3.

Ratings and Reviews
5 stars from our family!
We have been looking for a way to keep track of our kiddos’ spending money in a more on-the-go, fun, user-friendly way. We recently found the RoosterMoney app. It’s all about managing pocket money with kids and teaching them about the value of money.
When we set it up, we had them bring us the amount of cash that he wanted to deposit in their RoosterMoney “bank”. We can both have access to the same account so he can deposit and withdraw money from his phone and I can from mine. We can make notes for each transaction and we can also deposit/withdraw the same amount from multiple kids at the same time. When adding their “weekly commission” we can also sort it by “give”, “save”, and “spend” so we are teaching budgeting principles. It’s fun for them to see their money going up (or down) and helping them track how much money they have to work with in each of those 3 categories.
It’s also free to join with the option of upgrades to add chores and several other features. We are loving it so far!
Overall good so far - need some modifications
It would be great if when we boost money to our kids account it would automatically split it into our desired ratio of 80% spend, 10% save and 10% tithe. Instead you have to manually do that and enter 3 separate transactions with explanations. When making a withdrawal it would be nice if you could see what is in all 3 accounts while choosing the amount. We were previously using kidsbank and I was very disappointed when that app was shut down. We have 5 kids so you can imagine that managing their money and chores is not easy. We are liking this app so far but modifying the features I mentioned would make this fantastic! Also it is a little glitchy when adding chores manually. If google can’t come up with a picture and you try to go back and edit, it wants to make you put in a deadline date instead of leaving it open ended so you have to delete the chore and re-enter it with a different name so that google can find a picture. For example, I entered straighten craft area and Game Center and all I could get was pictures of hair straighteners. I look forward to providing further feedback as we begin to use the app.
Solves the problem for us!
Did we give the kids their allowance this week? Did Mom? Did Dad? Do we owe them from last week? 2 weeks ago? While we were on vacation? Did we forget to give them allowance on vacation? But didn’t we cover it by giving them extra spending money on vacation? What about that money grandma sent that we held onto because they didn’t have pockets/wallet?
How much money do you have in the bank? In your piggy bank, at home? How much do we owe you for doing that chore? Didn’t we pay you already? What about our last trip to the grocery store where you said you would buy that sugary cereal with your own money and pay us back when we got home? Did you pay us back yet? You did? I don’t remember, was it Dad or Mom you paid back?
We never have to worry about any of these questions, ever again! RoosterMoney makes it simple to track a weekly allowance amount going into our kids accounts, we never forget and we can check from anywhere (and the kids can check from their mobile devices, too)! We can instantly deduct from their available balance if they want to get anything at the store while we’re out - no more questioning or forgetting to account for things.
Bonus? RoosterMoney reflects exactly how electronic paychecks and banking work for adults in the real world and we’re training our kids (unbeknownst to them) on how to be adults with bank accounts long before they are old enough in the bank’s eyes to be issued a debit card.
