There are lot of Cashback sites around and Kidstart is another variant of those.
The difference: It offers 2% cashback on Amazon purchases and 15% of eBay revenue as cashback for eBay purchases.
Do not know for how long, but worth getting some cashback whilist it is offering for these merchants.
Not much, but would be very useful for people who like me do lot of their shopping on these websites.
As I understand you don't necessarily need to have a kid to have one of this open, as they let you transfer money to any bank accounts.
What if I don't have any kids?
You can register as a member and earn KidStart Savings even if you do not have any children. If you are expecting, you can either accumulate your savings in your KidStart account until the child is born; or register yourself as the child until you have the child's details. KidStart Savings can also be donated to a school of your choice or to one of a number of children's charities.
What sort of accounts can I save into.
KidStart can link to any Child Trust Fund account, most JISAs and any savings account that accepts electronic cash payments. These include bank accounts and most Building Society accounts. If you have a savings plan for your child which does not accept electronic payments (eg: a long term savings bond) then we would suggest you link your own bank account and transfer the money with your existing payments.
What if I don't have a savings account for my child?
Don't worry, you can still save using KidStart. You can use your own bank account to receive savings if you would like.
