Review: Kid Save Software

I was lucky enough to win the Kid Save Software
from 5 minutes for mom awhile back.

This software makes teaching kids about money management even easier. You download the program to your computer. It is set up to look like a bank account. You can set up automatic allowances, which is my favorite feature. You can also add interest & gifts.

KidsSave is a kids' savings and money management software program designed for ages 6 and up. KidsSave helps you and your child keep track of money, encourages saving through Reward incentives, and helps your child set and track goals. With KidsSave, kids can make deposits and withdrawals, receive automated allowances and Rewards (interest and/or matching funds), count money, and view their statement history over time.

The KidsSave program handles all Account management automatically so once the Account(s) has been set up, the Banker (typically the parent) has little to do. Unique features allow the Banker to have access to all Accounts, define interest, allowance, and/or matching funds, enable savings locks and require confirmations of all transactions.

There is a great goal section that both my girls love. it is really fun tracking the goal, seeing the chart. It even gives a break down to the day of when your goal will be met at the rate you are going. It is really cool.

The statements look like the bank, so the kids can see the deposits and withdrawals. Another thing I like is that, you can hold unto the money without taking away some of the learning process.

My daughters are 6 and 10, and they both love the program.

You can download a free 35 day trial of this program from the Kidnexions home page to try before you buy.
