GuardianCard is a revolutionary new debit card designed to give you, or your older relatives, a safe, simple and secure solution to managing day to day finances. GuardianCard allows you to issue cards linked to the account to trusted family members or friends so that they can shop or pay bills on your behalf. You set the spending limit and you keep control of your cash.
If it’s your mum or dad who needs support managing day to day finances, real time transaction reports can be sent to you or another trusted family member so that any suspicious activity is spotted immediately and the account can be frozen. All main bank account details remain secure and with the set limit on the GuardianCard you are protected from cash thefts, opportunistic tradespeople or rogue traders. With GuardianCard, no-one can learn how much money is in your main bank account.
Tell me more about GuardianCard...
Put simply, GuardianCard is a security net for your finances. With all the capabilities of a debit card, GuardianCard offers a risk-free way to shop, socialise and spend without going over your own set limit. GuardianCard is also backed up with a simple-to-use app offering printed statement options, real-time transaction reports and the ability to immediately suspend the card if any irregularities are spotted.
We all want to keep control of our own finances and, these days, we definitely want to keep an eye on our spending. Sometimes though, you might just need a little extra help and GuardianCard is ideal if you need to let someone do the shopping or pay for things on your behalf. It might be that you’re laid up for a few weeks, or longer, and can’t get out to the shops or perhaps you’d just like someone else to take the strain for a while.
Unlike other credit or debit cards, GuardianCard lets you issue a trusted family member, friend or carer with a virtual card on their mobile phone, or a physical card if you prefer. Any spending or payments they make on your behalf require a receipt scan so you can easily keep track of what’s being spent, when and where. You can even restrict it to certain types of shops or services.
Simply transfer the amount you want to spend on your regular shopping purchases on a monthly or weekly basis. Think of it just like a purse or wallet, you decide how much you want to put in, enough to cover the weekly shop, the paper bill or any other payments you need to make.
Your main bank account details will always remain secure, no-one can see how much money is in your main accounts and with your set limit on your GuardianCard, you are protected from cash thefts, opportunistic tradespeople and any rogue traders.
