Is the Greenlight Card a credit or debit card?

Greenlight is a debit card for kids, so it will not help them build their credit, and we will never run a credit check. However, Greenlight will begin teaching your kids how to be more financially responsible, which will better prepare them for handling credit in the future.

When making a purchase, you can choose either credit or debit.

  • If you choose debit, you'll need to enter the 4 digit PIN associated with the card.
  • If you choose credit, you'll need to enter the 5 digit zip code associated with the primary account holder. This will usually be the zip code of the parent's home address. Or, you may be prompted to provide a signature.
