Do we want a Big Christmas 2022 Poll? What should we ask?

In years gone by, we’ve done some Christmas wish-lists and other Big Polls. My question to you is: should we do another one this year?

Big Christmas Poll?
  • Yes
  • No

0 voters

Autocloses on 28th November.

You wish is (probably) my command. Ts and Cs* apply.

*There are no terms and conditions


If you did want a poll, here’s a wiki to help create what options we want. Basically, fill it with things you’d like Monzo to develop, big or small. If there’s a link to an existing topic on here all the better!

This is a wiki :point_down: - to add an item tap/click on the edit button and add your own requests!

Damn I rushed my vote in the last poll because I didn’t read the options properly. Can we have another?


I’m going to pretend to be an analyst and ask the insightful questions…

What improvements would you like to see?

All the Plus features available for joint accounts? I might list them separately. (Or I might not. I don’t even know myself yet).

Also: wiki!

What’s the best way to refuse additional polling:

  • With a poll
  • With love and kindness
  • Deploy Tom Blom

0 voters

(With apologies to @Tom)


These 3 please

Rather selfishly, just the export and custom categories. I’ll say virtual cards too for @duncang


Just giving this a bump to see if anyone else has things they’d like to add to the Big Christmas Poll.

Feel free to add to the wiki or to thread below :thread: :point_down:

Big news! We’ll do the Big Features Poll after Christmas (so the same time we did it this year).

But in the meantime, here’s a set of Community in 2022 Awards polls!
