About Icon


** Kids have earned millions in allowance and invested hundreds of thousands after completing chores through BusyKid. Ideal for kids 4-16, BusyKid is a financial literacy system that helps children develop basic, yet important, money management routines they will need as adults.
“Since your kids probably won’t learn this in school, go to BusyKid.com and start teaching them now. This is a great idea! Check it out and get the kids on board.” Kevin O’Leary (Mr. Wonderful from Shark Tank)
BusyKid is extremely easy to set-up, won’t cost your family hundreds of dollars to use and teaches more than where not to spend money. It’s well documented that children learn best by doing, so the hands-on experience delivered by this chores app and their kids debit card will be something your child will lean on forever.

Much More Than An App:
While we think of BusyKid as your child’s first job with direct deposit, the truth is, this kids chore app may be the first and/or only experience your child has with managing money before getting a real job. We are huge supporters of improved financial literacy, but until classes are implemented in all schools, we are dedicated to having a chores app for kids that will provide important hands-on experience and valuable life lessons. Not only that, having a debit card for kids will take the spending freedom (and responsibility!) of your child to the next level!
For your safety, BusyKid:
- Has the most advanced SSL encryption, and is FDIC Insured.
- Individual PINs on accounts and Spend Cards
- Allows alerts to be set on Spend Cards for low balances
- Has all sensitive information stored by partners who are compliant with all Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards.
- Kids’ Spend Cards are backed by VISA
The BusyKid Visa Prepaid Card is issued by Stride Bank, N.A., Member FDIC, pursuant to a license from Visa USA Inc. All cardholder’s funds are insured by the FDIC in accordance with the FDIC’s applicable terms and conditions.
