We’re currently with HSBC and occasionally we have to actually walk into the bank and pay in cash.
Once or twice a year we also have to write cheques which is usually associated with the schools or clubs the kids are involved with. Although this happens infrequently it is something we still have to do on occasion so would need something in place to handle these situations.
I know Monzo allows you to pay in cash but I begrudge actually paying to place funds in my account, even if it’s just £1. As far as I know cheques are not even a thing with Monzo so there would be no option to write cheques.
When the time comes for us to CASS from HSBC to Monzo we’ll lose our joint current account as there’s no way to leave it open when using CASS system.
So my question is what do other FullMozo customers do on the odd time they need to write a cheque?
I presume the answer is to use another bank? If this is answer can anyone recommend a bank where we can open a joint account that supplies a cheque book and doesn’t require a salary paid in every month? We’d also use this bank for paying in money and then transferring it over to Monzo for free. It feels a bit cheeky but I see no other way.
