Card and account details for current accounts


#122

Thanks for the helpful reply @spicefox. Very encouraging seeing this is something they intend within the next 6 months!


#123

you’re welcome - and by all means if Monzo isn’t meeting your needs right now and somewhere else does, take advantage of that.

Just keep an eye on Monzo :+1:


#124

@anon40728597 I will have a look into that. Thank you!


#126

Not sure if that’s planned but you could take a photo or just save the number in your notes app :thinking:

Feels like a lazy workaround - other than issues of security with storing card details in external apps, I’d like to see Monzo be such a complete app that it could make the card redundant, as much as I’m a fan of the hot coral look!


#128

I would find it useful as well having the card number in the app. Any plans to add it? Using third party apps is a workaround not a solution.


(Jack) #129

Agreed this would be so handy! Normally leave my wallet downstairs or in the car etc. So having to go find it to order stuff online is a pain.


(Jack) #130

Please!

In the meantime you can put the card number in your password manager - I put mine in 1Password. :+1:t2:

You can try revolut. My friend said it can keep the other currency in good exchange rate and send money abroad for free. But not covered by FSCS


(Alex) #133

Not covered by FSCS but money is held in a ring fenced account in Barclays or Lloyds so if Revolut went bust you would get your money back. I presume that is for all currencies not just GBP.


(Jamie 🏳️‍🌈) #134

And if Barclays or Lloyds goes bust…?

(You’re not covered.)

Lloyds Bank, pedants.

The government would bail them out. Too big to be allowed to fail etc etc


#136

If “Lloyds” goes bust then yes. But as for “Lloyd’s” they nearly went bust and set up the Equitas company to syphon off all their problem risks.


(Alex) #137

I still think Monzo is much more better because Monzo is a real bank but Revolut isn’t. If Monzo can add some good function the revolut provide. Then is will be much better. It is a good way to see what the next generation bank looks like. To achieve this, Monzo is much easier than revolut. I hope in the near future, I can use Monzo to instead my all other bank accounts.

Good luck


(Alex) #138

Then we have bigger problems


(Leon) #139

That’s not quite true as we would get our deposits back if it is not over the set amount that the (insert 3 letter acronym) covers.*
