American Express PASS

As parents we want to teach our kids to learn to maintain a budget, by learning to separate "wants" from "needs," and understand basic financial literacy. American Express has created a card to help us parents with this tough subject. The American Express PASS Card is a safe and easy way to give teens the money they need. Load the Card anytime, get spend alerts, and reload when the balance gets low.

An alternative to debit, credit, or cash, the PASS Card eliminates the need to carry around lots of bills without overspending. As a Parents I love that with this card I have full control! With the PASS Card I have the ability to load money, view transaction history, and set up alerts. With no risk of excessive fraudulent charges if lost or stolen, PASS serves as a safe way to provide our teens with money and teach them about responsible spending habits without detriment to credit lines or our wallets. And if lost or stolen, the funds can be replaced.

Teaching kids how to make responsible money decisions is such a hard thing to do! As a teacher, I am very familiar with the Junior Achievement Program so I was excited to learn that American Express had partnered with Junior Achievement to help PASS Cardmembers learn valuable information about managing money and financial responsibility. So, if you are struggling with teaching your kids this concept then we encourage you to check out the valuable information that Junior Achievement has to offer. They offer information on How to Budget, Saving and Investing, Understanding Financial Terms, Understanding a Paycheck, Handling Credit, and Paying for College!

I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of American Express and received a gift code to thank me for taking the time to participate.
