American Express: Monday #gno Twitter Party on Using Holiday Shopping to Teach Kids about Spending

#gno information!

It's hard to believe that the holiday shopping season is almost here. Thanksgiving is just a few days away, and we all know what happens the day after Thanksgiving. That's right, Black Friday will be here before you know it, and that means spending for the entire family. Although we all love the spirit of giving, we don’t want our kids to overspend. All parents want their teens to learn how to maintain a budget, separate “wants” from “needs,” and understand basic financial literacy, but opening that dialogue often proves difficult. Holiday season presents the perfect teachable moment to talk with your kids about budgeting.

A prepaid card like the new PASS Card from American Express is a great tool to help break the ice.  PASS from American Express is a prepaid, reloadable card parents can give to teens. An alternative to debit, credit, or cash, the PASS Card eliminates the need to carry around lots of cash without overspending. Parents have full control via an online account – with the ability to load money, view transaction history, and set up alerts. If lost or stolen, the funds on the Card can be replaced. 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.
