Oh wow. The rest of the designs for Santander are absolutely gorgeous. They must cost a lot too, with the spot varnishing.

So do I! Santander has gone from cheap–looking to premium. The rebrand is working wonders.

Those do look lovely. Thanks for posting.

Just need Monzo to up their game on the cards now. I wouldn’t go back to a legacy bank just for the cards, but it’s a shame the Monzo experience is so slick but the cards are pretty* awful. (* and not even pretty - hot coral is OK as a colour but looking dated now with the embossing).

Edit - @Carlo1460 not having a pop at you as a Monzo employee there - simply making the point that I think the current set of cards really lets Monzo down as a whole.

Pink all the way :disco:

I can’t say coral is my favourite to be fair. White is nice, aside pink, probably the nicest.

Really didn’t like the neon cards at all. By white I assume you’re referring to metal - unfortunately that’s not an option for me as the travel cover is basically useless to me (long term medical condition not covered) and I’ve never been one to waste money on mobile phone insurance. I have Plus but am underwhelmed with the card.

Business card isn’t bad, reasonable quality and non-embossed details on the rear, but spoiled by the embossed business name on the front.

Then again I’m late 50s so probably not the typical Monzo demographic. I use it for the in-app features, the cards are a secondary consideration.

To be fair, I rarely ever use the physical card for any bank, but they have a nice time stacked on my desk watching me work :joy:

I use Google Wallet more now but never leave home without my wallet. Current and business account cards, Mastercard or Visa credit, Amex charge card, driving licence and at least £20 in cash. But again… I’m 57 not 27 :slight_smile:

What’s a £20? :eyes::joy:

It’s a special token that can be exchanged for a beer when you see that strange sign “cash only” :joy: :beer:

The way prices are going though, you may need a few if you want more than 1 beer :astonished: :see_no_evil:
