Really good app but could use some fine tuning

Seeing that I am on the child end of Greenlight, and I don’t know what issues my mom might have with the app, being a 12 year old learning about saving, investing, and stock exchange in school, Greenlight is perfect. I do have a suggestion though. I really like the Level Up thing where it teaches you about spending and investing, and it’s great…except i’ve finished all the lessons on both topics with all three stars. So i’d be great if you made more lessons or more topics so we can learn more, and get more exp because for some reason, I’m still on level 5 and I can’t go up because I can’t get any more exp. Also can you add more stuff to the reward shop because I’ve gotten all of the backdrops and now I’m stuck on level 5 with x amount of coins and I can’t do anything. ALSO Greenlight has a giving option and my mom was like, ‘Oh that’s great! Now you can give for offering during church!’ and I was like, ‘Cool’ so we went to go and try to add my churches giving app I believe and for some reason we couldn’t find it or it didn’t work so we ending up having to put it in my savings because it was supposed to be 70% spend; 20% save; 10% offering/give; but we had to make it 30% save and 0% offering/give. If you could make it easier for giving options, it’d really help us out. But overall the app is really good. Have a great day/night.

Almost there but could use a couple of added features

I absolutely LOVE the idea of this app and the card to go with it. We’re super excited to start using it. BUT here are the things that could give it a 5 star rating....
1. Add the ability for 2 parent wallets for the kids cards. With the world today and the divorce rate, there are so many split households so having the ability for each family to have access to the kids cards would be amazing! I even think you could double your profit by charging $5 per parent wallet.
2. Having the ability to require a chore to be completed for the kids to get paid their allowance. I chose to go with this app because of the debit card feature but a friend of mine has a different app where he can assign chores which are “required for allowance”. If those chores are not completed, they don’t get their allowance. He can then also assign chores which are assigned extra money and can be redeemed as well (which I know is also a feature of Greenlight).
3. Last, I think there should be a parent approval process so the kids can be held accountable for what they are saying they completed before the allowance goes out.
Those are the things that would really help our family and I’m sure other families out there. Hopefully these things can be implemented soon so we can use the app to the fullest. Thank you for your consideration!

Great app!

Great idea but I do not like paying $60 a year to use this. Took 1 star away for cost and 1 away because I can’t access the money in the parent wallet or transfer it back to my account.

This has been great so far for my 3 boys who make money doing their chores. It’s much better than cash and they are learning how to save for specific things and not just spend money so freely. They feel very proud and excited when using their debit cards! Their ages are 12, 11, and 7! We have an account for my 4 year old daughter just to have a place to save birthday money she has and such. It’s easy on us too. They are more willing to do their chores knowing they will be paid for sure a specific amount each Friday! We had no system before this and kept losing track of how much we owed them or how much they spent on something. The only downfall is the $5 charge monthly. $60 a year and I still have to pay the interest on my children’s savings myself. If I only had 1 child I would not pay $5 a month. I also don’t like that I can’t transfer the parent wallet money back to my bank account. There should be a card like Venmo or PayPal for the parent wallet. If Venmo and PayPal can be free, this should be free as well. As soon as I find a different free version of this elsewhere I will go with that! When I first signed up I wasn’t aware that it was only free for 30 days. I found that out when the cards arrived. I’ve never seen the monthly fee advertised so I felt mislead.
