Fee to bypass withdrawal limits


(Andre Borie) #1

It looks like there are withdrawal limits due to the fact that they cost cash to :mondo: so it’s understandable that they don’t want to operate at a high loss - however in the unlucky event that you reach that limit, wouldn’t it be better if you were able to still withdraw and pay the ATM fee rather than being stuck without cash?

It’s worth noting Monzo are still in beta and ultimately you should always carry another card at all times.

…and if you are carrying another card, which you’re likely to be using to top up your Monzo card, why not use that card at UK ATM withdrawals instead of Monzo? At least that way you’re less likely to hit withdrawal limits.

That sounds like a good strategy for users who’re likely to hit the limits if they don’t do that.

Obviously you do lose the ability to track that spending via targets etc. though :pensive:
