“I have nothing but good things to say about this app. I am using this for my two teenage kids. They work hard for their allowance and this card is a good way for them to get the money and spend it the way they want to.”
“Love this app! Comes in handy when I’m at work and my daughter needs some money. Takes just a minute to transfer.”
“I’m so happy with this app. My 4 daughters are learning to manage the money they earn. I can easily give weekly allowance and everything is safer for children. I highly recommend it.”
“Step makes it easy to get money to my girls. I like them being able to have this card instead of carrying cash. Every other card I looked at first came with a lot of conditions and fees. This one doesn’t have any of that. We’re all very happy!”
“Step was just the app we needed to give my teen a little independence and experience with shopping responsibly with a card. We load her card with her allowance once per week and she decides what to save and what to spend. She can use her physical card or just her phone with apple pay (her preference). I highly recommend it!”
