I knew this shouldn’t have been unpinned!

edit: oh wow I have the power to pin things? amazing. Pinned! (We can unpin in the new year)


Hi Marlene & welcome :wave:

The 29th is in the holiday period, but isn’t a bank holiday, so…

  • Payment due on 29-Dec, means you can claim it at 4pm+ on 28-Dec if paid by BACS, with a nice notification from Monzo before 4pm on 28-Dec to claim it early
  • If you are paid using faster payments, you’ll get it when you get it without advanced notice on 29-Dec

Okay thank u, I just thought that if i usually was able to get paid early on the 28th it might have be earlier as the 28th is a holiday lol

yeah, banking only works to your advantage in this scenario when it’s a proper bank holiday, as opposed to a ‘normal’ holiday.

I also agree that every day should be a holiday - like that band :point_left: which are one of the coolest ever.

I don’t think the 28th is a bank holiday, is it?


No, it’s a normal day.


Last year it was a substitute day because both the 25th and 26th were on the weekend. This year just the 27th is a substitute bank holiday. 28th is not. Might be different in Northern Ireland?


Yes the 28th is a bank holiday in northern Ireland

Is it? - the 27th is a bank holiday, but not 29th or 28th according to this source - Bank holidays | nidirect

If that source is correct and you’re due to be paid on the 29th (and via BACS) then you’ll be able to receive the payment at 4pm+ on the 28th


I’m afraid it isn’t

As in you can pin posts that haven’t been pinned by Alan first?

I can tap the pin icon which flips from up to down and back, which makes pinned posts appear on the front page or just in the relevant category (at my user level).

That said, I can’t pin new things or unpin pinned things.

Sorry to burst your bubble but as @ndrw said above, you’ve just pinned it for yourself. Not for everyone else :frowning:


I’m devastated
