About our awesome sponsor: Chore Check
Parents are always asking us for apps that can help make the whole chore and allowance tracking a whole lot easier, how cool that we get to tell them all about our newest sponsor, Chore Check. This chore management and allowance app helps parents raise self-sufficient kids who know how to manage their own money. Parents can assign and track chores, and then with Chore Check Pay, pay kids their allowance electronically onto Chore Check cards. It’s the only app of its kind that allows parents to incentivize their kids to do their chores with allowance on a safe & secure prepaid card.
Special offer for Spawned listeners: Download the Chore Check app or go to ChoreCheck.com and use code SPAWNED when you enroll in Chore Check Pay and they’ll add $5 onto your kids’ cards when you order them. Sweet!
