Greenlight Debit Card for Kids - Latest Quality Issues

They did not say up front that there was a monthly fee. Then when I canceled they could not give me any confirmation email. I received nothing to confirm that my account is closed.

Great idea. But very poorly executed. Takes 6 days (business days) to add funds. This is deceptive because the first time I activated the account and added funds they were available immediately. App is somewhat difficult to navigate and it's even harder to find out how to get to customer support.

Trash, wouldn't let me proceed after I put in my address, I recently moved, but either way, there shouldn't have been any issues...I'd give it a ZERO, but thats never an option...garbage💩

Inefficient
It takes well over a week to transfer money into the parent wallet ( not an exaggeration ) from my bank account. It feels like a ploy to push people to add more money at once. This is not the app I would use if my child had an emergency and I needed to transfer some cash onto their card in a hurry. You can travel from coast to coast in less than a week. So it would literally be faster to deliver the funds in person.

This people have the worst technology
There is a MAJOR bug with the integration with Plaid where the user is asked to re-connect the bank account (Plaid is known for making you do that for no reason) but when the account is relinked, GL Platform does not know how to handle and trows you in an endless loop where asks to link the bank account which is already connected and wont let you transfer money. Very poor coding on a critical part of the workflow. I have worked on the fintech space so this is not something that inspires trust. Its really crappy!

Decent and easy to use app. FYI: It's not well suited for co-parenting situations. Any parent can see the other parents bank accounts. Would like to see some improvements in this area.

I was finally able to sign up online. Now that I reinstalled the app the screen is blank! I cannot see anything! Is this suppose to happen until your cards arrive or what?
Greenlight Debit Card for Kids - Product Description
Greenlight is a debit card and app for managing family finances. With the Greenlight app, kids and parents have companion apps with two different experiences. Kids can save, earn, invest, spend and give — with parent approval on every transaction. Parents can choose the exact stores where their kids spend, manage chores and allowances, set parent-paid interest rates and more. 

Because Greenlight is a prepaid debit card, kids can’t spend what they don’t have. No overdraft fees. No overspending. No surprises.
