They do that too stop people signing up for plus to get the card and then just cancel straight away, just a shame the old coral card if you still have it couldn’t be used instead
Presumably you weren’t so worried about waste when Monzo sent you your blue card?
If card/packaging/waste is such a big concern of yours, why didn’t you keep your coral card to start with?
Well… I didn’t NEED it, but the card was nice, I could have taken it or left it
It just makes little sense - Had I’d had the option to not have the +card, I probably wouldn’t have taken it, it is odd though
I do agree with you on both counts. I think it’s a bit excessive but they want to keep it exclusive.
You did have the option to not have the card though btw.
I guess in my honeymoon with Monzo Plus, I either didn’t see it, or wasn’t thinking
This is true, everyone had that option
People here have said that when they’ve done that, they’ve been sent a new card after cancelling Plus anyway
I’m sure that’s true. But even if you don’t take the Plus card they send you another pink card.
OP would still have received an unnecessary replacement card on cancellation, though.
They’ve fixed that apparently.
In September, I decided to cancel Plus and I ordered a new card early so that I didn’t miss a day without a card.
I worked out a way around the way around the ‘forced’ replacement by simply force closing the Monzo app. It just reopened in the feed.
If its been fixed, that’s a better way around than mine.
Happy cake day!
I knew I’d get a few bites.
It does look a bit pink to me, though.
