I’m amazed that I couldn’t find a similar post in the forums! So here I go
How do people convince their friends, colleagues, neighbors, pets, etc. to sign up and Monzo?
Does Monzo sell itself? Or does it take a bit more convincing?
I’ll speak from my experience, of which I’ve had no success! My friend is going on holiday so I ask him how he’s going to pay for things there, cash / card / CC, etc. And he replies “cash” - Planning to land in the destination country and transfer £ into local currency…
At which point I chip in and suggest Monzo! (Why wouldn’t I? ) It gets questioned; “what is it?” “why bother?”
It’s got great rates! *Mastercard exchange rate
You can track each of your transactions live!
The ability to freeze your card instantly if it’s lost / stolen
I’m gaining traction, or so I thought. And then it goes back to this
“I’ll stick with Nationwide because I’ve got my CC on that, and my savings with them”
You can have more than 1 account you know?
“But then I get confused”
This is but one example of being unable to sway a new user to Monzo.
So I’d be super interested to see how other people are convinced to start using!
