We're proud to announce the launch of Smartcash - the new Visa debit card for 8-16 year olds that is now available from East Sussex Credit Union. To celebrate the launch, you can get your Smartcash card for FREE until 31st December, 2016 (usual set up charge £10).
Smartcash has been designed to help children and teens take control of their finances as well as help encourage junior members to learn the importance of money management in todays increasingly cash-less society.
Full parental access and monitoring of the childs online account ensures safe, responsible spending, whilst the ability to send money direct to the credit union encourages the junior member to deposit into their savings account on a regular basis.
Each Smartcash account comes with a contactless Visa debit card, free mobile app, online account and a range of junior rewards and discounts that will save them money on everyday spending as well as high value purchases like games and fashion items.
Kids need to be a member of East Sussex Credit Union to apply for a Smartcash account but you can apply to open a Young Savers account at the same time as a Smartcash account. Membership to Young Savers account is free and you can apply online here.
