BillMyParents, creator of a trackable, reloadable MasterCard prepaid card that lets parents and teens track spending in real time, has been named the Paybefore Awards best in category for Youth/Student/Campus Prepaid Programs.
In its 6th year, the annual Paybefore Awards recognizes excellence throughout the prepaid and stored value industry. BillMyParents was one of three prepaid program finalists vying for the best in category distinction.
“BillMyParents is taking prepaid to teens where they are and in a language that resonates with them,” said Loraine DeBonis, editor-in-chief of Paybefore and chair of the judging panel. “The company also reaches out to parents in meaningful ways and is getting results. BillMyParents is gaining significant ground with its SpendSmart MasterCard because of its remarkable outreach as well as card features.”
