Hi Product Hunt community, Did you know a kid receives $6617 worth of toys by the age 12? Yet, 2 out of 3 parents say that their kids have too much stuff, while 83% of Americans cannot afford to go to college and 57% have less than $1000 in their savings accounts. Goalsetter was created to transform that for the next generation. We let kids set goals, small or big, and encourage that they do so in 3 categories: saving for their future, spending on what matters to them, and sharing with others. We help parents fuel their kids' dreams with easy, peasy Auto-Save -- automatic deposits into their kids' Goalsetter Savings Accounts. We let relatives and friends contribute in a fast and adorable way through GoalCards®, a much more fun and useful alternative to traditional gift cards. Oh and did we mention that every kid gets an FDIC-insured Savings Account in their names? (And that studies show that kids with savings accounts in their names are 6x more likely to go to college?) Check us out and let us know what you think! We are always communicating and improving our platform to fit our customers' needs. (If you recognize us, high chance you might have seen us pitch as finalists at SXSW, Money 20/20, or FinCon! :D)

love this idea--I think it is very important for kids to learn the value of saving. I'm always a big fan of letting the customer immediately be able to try the product without much friction (signing up, putting a bunch of information in, etc.) So it would be nice if you let potential customers try the product before they even have to register for anything. Overall, big fan. Nice work!
@jnhookem Hi Jake, That's so awesome to hear that you like Goalsetter! The gifting and gift-receiving side of the platform is actually entirely sign-up free -- you can give a GoalCard without having to sign up, while the recipient of the GoalCard doesn't have to be a user yet. Thank you so much for your interest and great tips! :D
