Visa Buxx

I’ve been toying lately with the idea of an allowance for the children. Yeah, I know it’s hard to believe that we don’t give out allowances around here, but we don’t. I pay for a few of the chores, and DH just pay for whatever fun stuff we do as a family. I’ve learned about something that may help make up my mind, though.

VisaBuxx is a prepaid card you can give your teen. it gives them incentive to learn how to budget, earn, and spend money responsibily. Parents can re-load the card whenever they want. The site officially launched in july, but you can visit VisaBuxx now and check out the demo or signup.

And if you were watching CBS Evening News with Katie Couric this past Thursday, yes, this is the site she was talking about.
