Sponsored Post: Shop Responsibly With PASS from American Express™

If there is one thing I love, it’s shopping. Like some women I know, it can get me into a bit of trouble. I know for most of my teenage years, I’d beg my parents for cash or to borrow their credit card to hit the mall with my friends, never taking responsibility for money.

That lackadaisical approach to budgeting didn’t do much for me when I got to college and had to learn to manage my money each month on my own.  More then a few times I’d end up running out of money before my next paycheck and have to make a call home, sheepishly explaining to my dad that I just had to have that new sweater.

If only we’d had PASS from American Express during my teens – I might have mastered the fine art of budgeting much earlier…

PASS is basically a Card that you can load money onto to use in stores, ATM’s, restaurants, the movies, or virtually anywhere. It’s great because you can monitor how you are spending–and where–all from an online account. Parents can use it to teach teens to manage money early. You can’t overdraft, so there are no outrageous surprise fees, and text alerts let you know when you are running low on funds.

You can even use PASS to load money before a shopping trip with the girls – you can set your budget before you hit the stores by loading money onto the PASS Card and never have regrets about busting the ceiling on your spending budget.

You can also use it for a vacation, pre-load your PASS Card with money and don’t worry about carrying cash or over-spending, while you should be focusing on relaxation!

Cool, right? You can get the PASS Card with no monthly fees from now until October 2011. Need more incentive?  Thanks to our friends at SheSpeaks you can get $25 if you enter the code SS25 when you sign up for the PASS Card. To find out more and get a Card go to This offer expires April 15, 2011
