First purchase

(Adam) #1

Where did you first use your monzo card? What did you buy?

(James Murray-Ferris) #2

Super boring.

On Prepaid: Waitrose and bought a Pepsi and a bag of crisps :joy:
On current account: bought cinema tickets

I just looked, and this is really weird.

On both my prepaid card, and my current account, my first transactions were at ATMs. The reason that’s weird for me is because I basically never take cash out. Search indicates that I’ve only taken cash out on 9 occasions on prepaid (in well over a year) and twice on current account (since June when staff testing started).

So aside from that, my first transaction on prepaid was at Poundstretcher (which was next door to my old workplace, I probably bought lunch) and on current account it was Uber.

On my prepaid card, I bought a Lotto ticket from a Shell garage.

On my CA card, it was Pizza :pizza: from a local takeaway! :smiley:

I got my card 2 days before going to Bruges, so my first purchase was the parking machine at the ferry port

Prepaid was Starbucks, closely followed by the ATM to change pin and withdraw a tenner, because y’know… just wanted to see it working!

CA was an online order of vape juice from Rejuiced; 200ml of American Grape Soda :joy:

Good effort. Guessing you like coffee? :raising_hand_man::ok_hand:

One thing Monzo has helped with is curbing my @work coffee spending.
But it does seem old habits die hard!

On my current account it was for my Netflix subscription, and then Sainsburys. I think I got the card a few days before pay day, so on pay day I transferred all my money in to it and set up all my monthly payments to come out.

On my prepaid card it was Boots, and Sainsburys. I think most of my money gets spent in Sainsburys :’(
