Product Review - GoHenry Card
Are you a mum who is awful at paying out weekly allowances? Or not rewarding your child for helping out around the house? Then you maybe interested in a GoHenry account.
I signed up to one back in 2018 and now my daughter thinks I am the best thing since sliced bread!
I have to say, I really do like this product. I downloaded the GoHenry app on my phone and set up my parent account, I was then able to set up my child account and order a card.
The Parent app is great, I top up the card one a month by standing order with enough money to cover the monthly fee (£2.99), allowances and a bit extra if my daughter completes chores each week.
The GoHenry Card is great because my parent account is set to automatically give her a weekly allowance. When she completes set weekly goals I can pay her an agreed amount by ticking the task.
Another feature about the card is that you can control the spending limits on the card, at cash points and online shopping. Which I think is fantastic.
There is even a piggy bank which allows my daughter to set up a savings account within the card.
GoHenry has just come up with another fantastic feature 'Gift Links', as children get older, they are going to want the biggest and most expensive items. Well, 'Gift Link' will allow you to send a link to friends and family and they can send Birthday money, Christmas money straight to the GoHenry account.
Overall all I think the GoHenry card is great, It is great for providing consistency of paying allowance and my daughter has an opportunity of being rewarded for helping around the house.
There is also another way to save money for your children when you shop, its called Kidstart
