What makes a teen debit card different to a regular bank card or credit card?

The GoHenry debit card for teens is not tied to a bank account— you are only spending money you have (because it’s already loaded onto your card).

Unlike teen credit cards, there’s no risk of damaging your credit score or going into debt. It’s simple—the money you have on your card is the money you can spend or save.
