Save for your child’s future with the help of KidStart

Saving for your child is something that every parent wants to do. Whether it’s to go towards university, their first car or first home it can become stressful worrying about how you’re going to be able to afford to give your little one the future you want them to have.

That’s why KidStart is a great tool to help you boost their savings. It’s free to open an account and allows you to save for your child when you shop online at over 2,300 well-known retailers. These retailers include some of your favourites like Tesco, John Lewis, eBay, Amazon and many more.

You can save on everything from your weekly groceries, household bills, holidays, clothes and insurance meaning you can easily boost your child’s savings. Regular users of KidStart can save up to £250 a year!

The money you get back from your online purchases is used to top-up your child’s junior ISA, bank, building society or child’s savings account. Don’t worry if you haven’t set up an account for your yet, savings can be accumulated in your KidStart and moved over later.

It has some amazing features too:

  • More than one child? Don’t worry, savings can be divided between children. There’s no limit on how many you can save for.
  • You don’t have to have given birth to start saving, you can open a KidStart account and start saving whilst pregnant.
  • Invite the family to join and save for your little one too, so whenever grandparents, aunts or uncles shop online they can earn savings for your child as well!
  • Tell your friends about KidStart and in return when they join and save £5 you’ll get a £5 top-up for your little one’s account.
