Plus, award-winning Money Missions enhance their skills in-app through gamified quizzes and videos.

GoHenry is loved by over 2 million members—and it’s easy to see why:

Order up to four debit cards for the whole family—it teaches young people how to track their spending with no risk of overdraft. Plus, spending abroad is fee-free.

AUTOMATIC POCKET MONEY
GoHenry teaches budgeting basics with a weekly payment set by parents. Plus, set up automatic weekly allowance transfers and tick another to-do off your list.

SPENDING VISIBILITY
Real-time notifications let parents see where and how much is spent. Parents can also set one-time or weekly spending limits and choose where the card is used.

SAVINGS, STASHED
Young people can customise savings goals and set up an auto-save amount. Parents can reward saving habits by setting parent-paid interest in-app—and keep goals on track by locking them.

MONEY MISSIONS
Through videos and quizzes developed by financial education experts, award-winning Money Missions teach young people money skills they can use in the real world.

GIVING MADE EASY
Set up donations to the NSPCC or create a savings goal for a chosen charity—a small act of kindness teaches how rewarding it feels to donate money.

Can't fault it

This really is such an excellent app to go with an excellent product! I really can't fault it at all. It's so easy to navigate and has helped me ensure I meet the agreed weekly pocket money with no problem whatsoever. The tasks are an excellent idea as my daughter gets an agreed amount of pocket money but is able to earn more by completing simple tasks each week that we agreed together. I like that you can choose to be the o e who ticks off completed tasks or allow your child to also tick off tasks as she does them. It shows your child you trust them to be honest but if it doesn't quite go as expected it us dimple to change to just the parent ticking off tasks/chores. Not only that but my child cimpmetes her chores with no complaints or moaning. She likes watching her money grow and it has taught her the joy of saving her money. An agreed amount each week goes into her savings account but it's easy to transfer to spending account shld it be needed for special circumstances e.g. Holidays
I cld go on but I h e probably said more than enough already.
All in all despite the monthly fee, thus card and app has helped my child and I build a stronger bond of trust as I was forever forgetting pocket money or not having enough cash to give her.
It's well worth giving a go. You won't be disappointed.

I recommend download, REALLY CHEAP

This app is great, it teaches kids how to use money while helping them spend it! My kid has really loved it and goes to the shop often just because she wants to use the car 😂😂 just one simple suggestion u should update it so the parents get alerted when the child thinks they have completed the tasks like when u go on earning and tasks to do u press it and it says ask mum but what if
I’m busy downstairs on a work phone call?? If I got my child running down asking me to check their room it wd not look good to my boss but if it was just a notification it’s really no biggy? Right? Also the £3 comes out of my child’s card she thought i had punished her for something 🥺💔 just plz fix that!!!

Overall great app 5/5 ratings from me, let’s my kid learn while feeling responsible and been able to go to the shop while I’m busy and get somet for herself too, really good app! 🙂

Hi there! Thank you for your 5* review! It is brilliant to hear that your daughter loves to use gohenry and is getting the most out of the app! In regards to your suggestion, please can I ask that you forward this over to help@gohenry.co.uk so we are able to pass this over to the app developers to look into? In the email, please include the £3 charge coming off your daughters card. We will look into this as soon as possible and get that fixed! Have a great day and enjoy your weekend! We look forward to hearing from you! - Abbie :)

Want to be Orwellian? Now you can!

Teaching money to children is a topic which some may find hard, which may be a struggle to find out how to do, but this app does provide a great way of giving your kids a card which they can use at the shops! However, if your parents (or one of your parents) are controlling in any way then they can, and will, use it to manipulate and control your every move. One such issue is the ATM limits. There should be no ATM limit in the application as it will restrict the money to be just usable on the card. Another issue is with the card customisation, children cannot edit their cards while they're 'being made' but adults can. This is confusing as if your parents are indecisive then they can keep on changing the card patterns to something different which is a pain in the backside for the creators of the card. Finally, we have the spending limit. Teenagers shouldn't be restricted by their parents as to how much they spend in a week or at once, rather they should be limited by the money they have. Parents with the app can keep the money their kids can spend at once low to basically teach your kids not to save as it is worthless. GoHenry is very Orwellian in these ways and give the parents too much controll.

Developer Response ,

Hi there, thank you for your review. We understand that our service does not work for every family, we try to be as safe and inclusive as we can with the features that we offer. Because we are a service for children, we have parental limits in place to protect them from making unsafe or age-restricted transactions. The parental limits in place also teach the children how to save and budget their money. With regard to the card designs, these cannot be changed once selected, the "change until" will only allow you to update personal details on the card rather than the actual design, because of this, the feature is only available to the parent. We have multiple FAQ pages which include information on parental controls and our limits. https://uk.community.gohenry.com/s/article/gb-What-Parental-Controls-does-gohenry-have / https://uk.community.gohenry.com/s/article/gb-Is-there-a-limit-to-how-much-I-can-load-and-my-child-can-spend-on-their-card - Morgan.
