Pockit’s additional joint cards are a brilliant way to not only control how much your teenager spends, but also to teach them how to budget and spend their money responsibly.

Imagine this: your 16-year-old is about to go on a school trip to another country for a week and you need to provide them with spending money. Giving them cash runs the risk of them overspending and running out of money, as well as not being able to give them more if they need it. With additional joint cards you will have an account for kids where you can agree on a daily spending budget and top up the card every day.

This will make sure that they don’t overspend and will force them to learn how to budget their money day-to-day, a lesson that will benefit them for the rest of their lives!
