How to Get Your College Kids to Call Home‏

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.

How wonderfully quiet the house has been -- no dirty dishes in sight, no piles of shoes to trip over in the doorway, no laundry to fold -- just peace and quiet to be had! But suddenly, the silence, the lack of chores, the absence of the little annoyances you’ve grown so accustomed to are just too much. You are officially an empty nester!

With the first semester of college in full-swing, many parents a re-coming to terms that their kids are well on their way to adulthood. Given this is generally the first time these kids have been away for an extended period of time exploring new surroundings, making new friends; they have probably been calling home and checking-in sparingly.

Instead of bombarding their new found independence with “I miss you” calls, texts and emails, why not surprise them with a care package filled with one of the most valuable things to college freshmen, money!

Sending a pre-paid card like MyVanilla in a care package is a great option for parents to treat their kids, as well as offering a safer alternative to sending cash.

  • The MyVanilla debit card is reloadable, and with more than 50,000 reload locations, parents can add more money onto the card weekly, monthly or whenever they want to surprise them again.
  • Cards can be used to purchase anything, as long as Visa cards are accepted at the location which includes over 500,000 retail locations.
  • Money gets lost and stolen easily. A MyVanilla debit card allows accounts to be frozen to protect the money on the card and is easily replaceable if lost or stolen.

Buy It: 

You can purchase MyVanilla cards at many local retailers near you including CVS/pharmacy and Family Dollar!
