In this article from Washington Post: Age 14, and Paying With Plastic, I noticed the following paragraph…
- Convenience and control are what motivated Lisa Sims — Alex and Amanda’s mother — to sign them up for Visa Buxx. Every Friday, her husband automatically moves $50 into Amanda’s card account and $30 into Alex’s. “My husband has always been the allowance guy, and a lot of times I would have ranting and raving teens stomping their feet at 7 p.m. on Friday because Daddy’s not home and they don’t have their allowance,” she said.
When were you ever getting $30 to 50 a week in allowance? Yeesh!
