The Makes Cents Card provides your children with the flexibility to spend their pocket money, without needing cash. Using the Makes Cents Parent App, you can apply, review, control and top up your child's account at any time.
The Makes Cents Card is Irelands 1st Mastercard® Prepaid Card for children from the age of 8 to 18.
Parents can apply for and control up to 4 children's cards and transactions in one handy App.
Your child can use their Mastercard® Prepaid card in shops, cafés, restaurants or at ATM’s (if this feature is switched on by the parent).
By default, certain merchants are automatically blocked by the Makes Cents team. These automatic blocks are to discourage pre-teens/teens from purchasing inappropriate goods, such as alcohol, cigarettes or online use, e.g. gambling.
• Turn on/off ATM withdrawals
• Review each child's transaction history
• Top up your child's card using a Debit or Credit card
• Temporarily lock your child's card, if it has been misplaced.

Ratings and Reviews
Started out promising
Loved how easy it was to transfer and see payments but then the app started to get iffy when logging in and now has completely stopped allowing log in, this is making tracking the money spent and transferring impossible so the card is useless
Great at the start for visibility of spend but now it’s not working and you can neither login or transfer money which makes it completely useless and I’m also worried about the money that is on the card. Zero help on the website👎
App just stopped working. Unable to login. It’s also not good that despite reviews referencing same problems in past 2 days have received no response from the support team.
