No the teen can access their account through fidelity website just like all other accounts.
03-03-2022 at 11:58 AM
My opinion: Usually the app store will let you install apps over wifi.
I don't know if the youth app is different from normal app. On the normal app I don't see a way to activate a new account. It should work to use a cell without a phone# attached. I would also try logging in on the website to create a username and password and accept the terms of service.

From Fidelity's pages:
"In order for your teen to receive the $50 reward offer, you (parent/guardian) must initiate the opening of a new Fidelity Youth Account through Fidelity.com/YouthAccount and your teen (aged 13–17) must download the Fidelity Mobile® App and activate the new account on or after January 24, 2022."

"The bonus award will be deposited directly to the eligible account within 10 calendar days after the teen has activated their account through the Fidelity Mobile App. "

"Your teen will get a push notification on their phone when the $50 reward has been deposited into their account."

Sorry for the clumsy way to put the info out there. Opened the account a few days ago after my daughter turned 13. Finished the enrollment today after they checked her ID papers. Logged into her account webpage and had the bad surprise to realize she will now be able to see the balance on two UTMA accounts in her name. Just something to be aware of.

This can be changed by contacting Fidelity and asking for a different identification number for this youth account that doesn't match directly to the child's SSN. It will then create a separate account for login purposes.

Not sure. You can check out this site for bank bonuses. https://www.hustlermoneyblog.com/best-bank-promotions/

Typically, there won't be any bonuses for minors, but you could always open another account for bonus yourself.

Some credit unions offer Youth accounts for minors that offer semester earning credits for good grades. Just depends on where you're at and what's available. You can go to the credit union's website and see if something like that is available.

Good luck!

Per Fidelity - How long does the $50 promotional offer last? This offer is available for a limited time and Fidelity reserves the right to terminate the offer at any time.

Fidelity doesn't pay out bonuses. Myself and several people I know have bonuses that didn't get paid out from the FIDELITY100 promo. Fidelity claims the bonuses are pending but they never show up months later.
It's possible that there was an error on either side. Some people transfer money from existing Fidelity accounts instead of an outside account. To say that Fidelity doesn't pay out these bonuses is false. Many if not most people got theirs myself included. ($100 & $50) They also have a no fee HSA. Overall they are a pretty good.

I created an account for my son. Does he need to create a separate login to get the $50 credit?

That only works if you have a business and can legitimately pay them for goods/services.

Your business also has to make more than it pays them to be valid.

How would my teen be strong enough to resist the temptation of the high-risk, high-reward scheme in this market?

I got the $100 bonus and my son got the $50 bonus. If you aren't getting them, then somebody is doing something wrong.

In my case, we realized it would be good for my son (age 14) to have a debit card for a scout trip he's on right now so he's not having to keep up with cash. We got the ball rolling back in April thankfully because it takes time to get everything set up and of course the debit card has to be mailed. Your kid must install the app on their phone. To log in, click Forgot Password to create a login and pass, which isn't intuitive. I also had to go into the Fidelity website and specify that I want to be able to transfer money to his account, and that takes several days to get activated. Basically you need to apply for the account several weeks before they might need it. So far, it's working great, as I can see where he's used it. We probably could have gotten one at a local bank, but the bonus money is nice, and later I'll be able to transfer a mutual fund over to him with his "savings" money.

Teach them about these high risk "investments".... then let them think they know better and invest a little money then see what happens. As long as you are able to limit the damage/investment, then it will be a lesson that is well-worth the money.

Quote from JustAnotherSlob :
Not the op, but colleges give two types of aid: merit aid is given to entice well-qualified students come to the school and doesn't depend on your financial condition only on how well the child does / how much the college wants them. Need aid, which is the majority of financial aid, is based on income and assets of the child and parents.

In my case my expected family contribution from FAFSA was more than the total cost of attendance for my kid but they still ended up with a pretty nice merit scholarship.
Financial aid grants: Need-based free money. Eligibility is calculated using the data on the FAFSA (income, assets, family size, etc).
FAFSA must be renewed October of each year, and the grant can change based on the data provided (income changes).
Financial aid is generally a combination of grants (federal, state, even institutional) and guaranteed student loans (sometimes a combo of subsidized and unsubsidized).

Scholarships: merit based funds that are solely based on the students accomplishments (grades, other criteria). Institutional scholarships are def an enticement for the kid to attend their school. Others are external/private organizations that offer scholarships on criteria academic and otherwise. Those can be taken to any school the student chooses.
Renewable scholarships generally have renewal criteria that must be met each year (keeping up a certain GPA, earning x credits in the prior academic year, etc). Lots of kids lose them bc they don't pay attention to this and party a little too hard freshman year (first taste of independence/freedom).
Some are non-renewable, so don't assume the money is good for four years.

Quote from eliteconcept :
Why even make it optional? My 11 yr old has had one (savings acct) for 7 years now... he knows that for Christmas and birthday money he spends half and saves half. He's got over 2k at this point and knows he can't touch it till he starts driving... even then it'll be emergency need only. Though we did give him alot of the money we got for him from stimulus money. His 4 year old sister is doing the same thing. Need to move them into money markets or something but I'm not overly worried about it.
Put it in a Treasury backed ibonds. 9.6% interest currently
