If there is one thing I love, it’s shopping. (And my daughter, too, of course–that’s a given.) I project there’s about a 99% chance that I will pass down my shopping obsession to her so I am already thinking ahead about how I’ll teach her how to spend smartly. Of course, we’ll go over coupon clipping and sale rack hunting, but to help her master the fine art of budgeting, I already have my eye on the new PASS Card from American Express.
It’s basically a Card that you can load money onto for your teen to use in stores, restaurants, ATM’s, the movies, virtually anywhere. It’s great because you can monitor how much your teen is spending–and where–all from an online account. The best part, though, is that your teen can never overdraft. If there’s no money left on the Card, you don’t have to worry about outrageous surprise fees.
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 about this offer and get a Card, go to www.americanexpress.com/shespeakspass. This offer expires April 15, 2011
Use it to give your teen his/her weekly allowance and set the foundation for financial responsibility early.
Hmm, maybe I need a PASS Card…
