Description

Pennybox is the smart way to help your kids become financially responsible adults! Kids gradually learn to earn, save and spend their own pocket money in a fun and practical way.

HOW IT WORKS:
1. Parents or kids send chores, actions, jobs, tasks or anything else around the home and attach a financial reward. $2 to do the dishes, $5 to wash the car, $10 for scoring a goal at their weekend football game. Be creative and make it more fun with emojis. It can be anything! For actions you want done regularly, simply set it up to repeat, and we'll take care of the rest.

2. Kids complete their tasks, chores or actions and mark them off in the app, while collecting and tracking money they earn in their Pennybox wallet. Accountability is important, so you can ask kids to attach a proof-photo to show they've completed the task before you pay them.

3. When it's time to spend, kids cash out, or parents can deduct an amount for something they want to buy, giving kids ownership over their money. Bank accounts and email addresses are not required for kids.

Pennybox is super safe and secure, and built with kids and families in mind.
It works on shared devices at home, so kids can log in easily with their own account!
