We’ve created a kids card that lets your child manage money in digital jars. It's a great way to teach kids about money through doing. Without them even noticing, kids start to budget intuitively, sorting what they have into different categories and setting goals for each. It’s also the perfect family card if you are heading abroad,as you pay absolutely no foreign exchange fees.
With HyperJar kids card they get the spending independence they want. You get the oversight you need. Because we believe helping kids get into smart money habits for life should be simple. And free.
Any child age 6 or above can use the card, unlike a bank card where they need to be 11.
HyperJar is for the whole family!
New customers earn up to 1.5% cashback when using their HyperJar adult card for everyday spending.
Create Jars for your kid's regular spending — that might be bus fares or magazines — as well as for longer-term goals, like a holiday or a special pair of footy boots. It helps them to give their pounds a purpose: to see what they’ve got and where they want (or need) it to go.
Kids can name their Jars, add emojis, choose a colour — and even set a balance target. Sounds simple, but naming and visualising goals really helps toteach your kids about money management and saving.
All kids Jars are shared with a parent. So they get spending independence and you get instant notifications whenever money is moved or spent.
HyperJar is the only free account for the whole family, from 6 to 106. Unlike a bank account, kids can share their Jars with mums and dads (as well as uncles, aunties, sisters, and cousins) and get instant transfers into their Jars. They can even swap messages with each other, from birthday hints to alist of chores to be done.
Set maximum spending limits within Jars, block spending from the account, or restrict spending from certain Jars withspending control features.
We think there are three simple rules for a better relationship with money. They apply to kids just as much as adults. Read about themhere.

There’s just one HyperJar app — the version kids download is the same as the adult app (with a few little tweaks). When kids with their own phone get the app on their device, they’ll be asked to link it to an adult’s account during the signup process.
HyperJar kids cards are always ‘paired’ to an adult or parent account. So kids don’t have their own account (it’s their mum or dad’s), but they do have their own card. Any child with their own phone and number can download the app on their device. They’ll be asked to link it to an adult’s account during the signup process.
No, we don’t allow cash withdrawals with HyperJar cards.
Kids should ask their mum or dad to contact our customer support team via Live Chat, or email firstname.lastname@example.org if they have a question or problem with their cards.
Yes! There are zero fees added when paying abroad with the kids or adult HyperJar prepaid cards.
There are no fees for transferring money into a HyperJar account — you can move money in as often as you like. Once it lands in the adult’s account, it can be moved into the Jars they share with their kids manually or via scheduled, regular payments (eg, the 1st of every month, or every Monday). Check out our travel card page to learn more!
In the UK, a child can acquire a prepaid debit card from the age of 6 and over when the account's opened by a parent. From the ages of 11 and over, kids can then apply for child accounts from certain branches. Learn more by reading our Guide to Debit Cards For Kids.
HyperJar is not a bank, but you’ll get the best bits of a bank, along with all the amazing features that HyperJar offers, and a Mastercard debit card. Unlike traditional banking apps and cards, we offer loads of money management and spending control features, to help kids and adults make the most of their money. If you lose your kids card, you can freeze the card directly from the app.
