A recent study in the United Kingdom shows that young people are getting more and more pocket money.
A company took a survey of Β more than 1,200 children aged between 8 and 15 years old, and asked them about their weekly allowances.
The survey found that the average kid in the UK gets about Β£6.50 each week, which is a 52p rise since last year.
The research also suggests boys are getting more money than girls.
After finding this article we wondered how much does the average New Zealand student get for their pocket money each week?
Let us know in the comment section how much your parents give you a week.

  1. I think my parents are going crazy not giving any pocket money at all. They did not give me any since 10 years. But usually my dad put some money into my bank account, that’s like once in a month. I feel jealous because the United Kingdom gets so much money in a week. I just found out that 6.50 pounds is $13.95 dollars in New Zealand.

  2. In our class of boys 8 years old to 11 years old
    5 children get $5 per week
    1 child gets 4 $6 per week
    8 children get $10 per week
    4 children get $10 plus per week
    4 children get no pocket money

  3. I think somebody should do a study about New Zealand’s kids pocket money. I get $5 a week(half my age), but sometimes Mum forgets.

  4. i get 6$ per Friday my pocket money increases by 1$ each birthday i have. p.s i have to feed the dog, do recycling, get my moms iPad and vacuuming the house.

  5. I only get $5.00 a week I am getting under paid and need to be paid more for the jobs I do.

  6. I DONT GET POCKET MONEY BUT I GET LIKE 100 DOLLARS ON MY BIRTHDAY AND NEW YEARS DAY AND WHEN I GO TO CHINA MY FAMILY GIVES ME 1000S OF DOLLARS

  7. I don’t get any pocket money. EVER!.But I wonder, how much money kids that have pocket money (for no reason!!) have? Work for your money cause kids that get pocket money, might not have much money when they are older, cause they never had to work for it. If you’re rich and you get pocket money you are probably not doing anything to earn it. Not getting pocket money gives me a hindsight of the world we’ll live in when we’re older, when we’re 30 we won’t still get pocket money!!!!

  10. My mum and dad give me 20$ every week so I’m so rich. (Now I have 2000$ dollars and 10 cents)

  11. “I only get $5.00 a week I am getting under paid and need to be paid more for the jobs I do.”
    I only get $3.00 a week!

  12. As all kiwi children $5 a week witch I think is pretty fair because some people don’t get any pocket money!

  13. Hahaha, what a interesting article!
    I usally get $10.00 a week πŸ™‚
    ONLY if I do my chours πŸ˜‰

  14. I get $30 one week and the next week i get $20 then the next week i get $30 i goes on and on

  15. In my class there is 24 kids
    5 kids get paied $1 a day
    2 kids gets paied $7 a week
    8 kids get paied $10 plus a week
    3 kids get paied $10 a day
    4 kids get paied no pocket money

  16. Many children do get money.
    But, I think that children get an allowance about $2.00 a week.
    So, they would learn how to save more than spending them every time they get an allowance.
    In this case, if children get $2.00 dollars a week, they would learn a proper discipline to save up their allowance.

  17. I wish people will actually tell the truth and not lie. We know you don’t get 1,000,000 dollars, or $50, you only probably get $5 at the most
