Welcome to the Finder Kids’ Cards Customer Satisfaction Awards 2023

Who better to tell us who should win a customer satisfaction award than the customers themselves? We asked the customers of kids’ prepaid card providers to tell us about their experiences, and now we can reveal the stand-out brands in this field.

The winners

This is the second year Finder has surveyed the customers of kids’ prepaid card providers. The winners are based on both overall satisfaction scores (star ratings) and recommendation scores (the percentage of customers who said they’d recommend the brand to a friend). You can read more on our methodology below.

Now, without any further ado, here are this year’s winners (*applause, please*).

Customer satisfaction ratings methodology

Our independent survey of 613 kids’ card customers was carried out in December 2022. We asked adults who have a prepaid card for their child to rate their satisfaction (on a scale of 1 to 5) with the service they have received from their provider and also whether they would recommend that provider to a friend.

We crunched the numbers and used these star ratings to decide the winners of our awards (if there was a draw on the star ratings, we then used the “would recommend” percentage as a tie-breaker).

Kids’ cards ratings

★★★★★ — Excellent

★★★★★ — Good

★★★★★ — Average

★★★★★ — Subpar

★★★★★ — Poor

Our customer satisfaction scores (“Customers say”) are based on a survey of 613 customers carried out in December 2022.
We show offers we can track - that's not every product on the market...yet. Unless we've said otherwise, products are in no particular order. The terms "best", "top", "cheap" (and variations of these) aren't ratings, though we always explain what's great about a product when we highlight it. This is subject to our terms of use. When you make major financial decisions, consider getting independent financial advice. Always consider your own circumstances when you compare products so you get what's right for you.
