Gigs are jobs parents offer to kids that they either can accept or reject. This is important because it gives your child a choice and the freedom to make extra money at their own pace!
Extra pay allows people outside of the family to pay kids for jobs or to send cash gifts for birthdays, graduations, and more. Each child has a QR code that allows those outside of GravyStack to send money directly into the kid’s Money Machine. Every dollar they receive is automatically managed according to their goals and all in one place.
It’s crucial you pay kids right after you approve their request to help reinforce good habits. Autofunding ensures your Parent Wallet account always has enough to cover allowance, Gigs, and more without having to remember to keep it full.
Other debit cards make you set limits for and track every purchase.
GravyStack gives kids a way to learn, earn, save, invest, and share.
Giving kids a way to spend early but not giving them the other tools they need, like bank accounts and income streams, leads them down the wrong path early.
The money that ends up on a kid’s GravyStack debit card can be spent freely without a ton of adult oversight because all the key conversations and rules come before the kids are given purchasing power. Plus, they earn all that money!
