No more carrying cash and change around to buy ice cream. No more using your credit card to pay for parking. It even comes with a full range of financial literacy features to help them learn along their journey.

Use the Hero Budget Tool to divide money between our pre-created categories: general, living expenses, eating out, travel, shopping, and fun. Each category was well thought out to help you budget for what is important for your kids.
You can control how much is on the card and allocate the funds to each category. As parents, you have the superpower of moving money between categories or adding money to only a specific one. You are in control!
Vault & Round-up
Teach your child how to set aside money for something special using the Hero Vault. The Round-up feature rounds the charge to the nearest dollar and automatically adds the spare change to their Vault. Help your kid start saving in an easy way and with little effort on their part!

It’s important that the money is safe and is accessible by your kid only. In case the card was misplaced or lost, you or your kid can lock it remotely through the Hero Portal or the app. Found the card? No problem, unlock it right away and it’s ready to spend.
