    Subject:  Debit card for teen?
    Comment:  We set up an account through Alliant Credit Union for my daughter. They have teen checking and kids' savings, and they can have a debit card. No additional fees, and they reimburse ATM fees up to a certain number of withdrawals each month.I can link the accounts to my own checking account so I can easily transfer funds to my daughter.I did a fair amount of research and Alliant seemed the best option.

    Subject:  ATM for teens: Greenlight vs. traditional?
    Comment:  I just opened an account with Alliant Credit Union for my daughter. They have a kids' savings account and a teen checking account. Fee free and you have a certain number of ATM withdrawals at any ATM per month. It's all online and seems pretty simple. They have an app that your teen can put on their phone (and you can put on yours) to track funds and make deposits. It was the best option I found after doing a fair amount of research.
