Don’t be surprise when suddenly you 12 year old son asking you to get him a debit card (a prepaid Visa) at Tune Money.
“Papa, Can You get me a tune card, I want to cash out my PayPal money” 🙂
“See I have my own blog now”
Heheh My little daughter looking anxiously at my laptop
Kids now are more advance than us, with the Internet, handphone,online games and now debit card while I only know how to make kite or gun from wood at their age.
So now student especially in boarding school that are far from home, studying in oversea or even your daughter at home can get a Tune card. Since Tune Money Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Tengku Zafrul Aziz said that now everyone can have it (12 -18 years).
It is a brilliant idea since parents can top up their children Tune Card here in Malaysia, and they can spend it in US for example. If I am not mistaken parents usually bank in money using Telegraphic Transfer (TT) and have to pay service charge and of course long que. Student in Secondary School age 12 to 17, study in different states can use the Tune Card by calling or sms their parent to top up their card online. Simple as that.

Children can soon go cashless with debit card
KUALA LUMPUR: A few weeks from now, children as young as 12 will be able to swipe a debit card and leave their cash at home.
Tune Money Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Tengku Zafrul Aziz said applications for the prepaid Visa Tune Card would be made available for children aged 12 to 18 years.
The Tune Card is a debit card that gives instant online approval with no credit check and allows for cash withdrawals at ATMs worldwide. The annual fee is RM9.99.
Currently, credit cards are allowed only for those aged 18 and above.
Tengku Zafrul said: “Children can buy things for themselves and it will be easier for parents to transfer money to their children. They won’t have to give them so much cash.
“This way, parents will be able to easily monitor and control their children’s spending, as every transaction will be recorded.”
“We believe there is a niche market, especially for parents who have teenage children studying overseas,” he said.
The complete details on the Tune Card for teenagers will be announced on Feb 1.
