How much have you rounded up in your savings pots? I’ve deleted a few to switch to interest-gaining pots but curious as to who’s on the leaderboard when it comes to rounding up transactions!
Since April 2018, £430. However I used £200 of that when the new AirPods came out
Since 8th feb £102 as saving for an over night stay at Gatwick hotel before going to Florida, so by the time we go we should have enough to cover hotel £90, taxi to airport £30 and a meal in the hotel the night we arrive £50
I still love round up
It’s rounded up a bunch more than this but “round up” wasn’t calculated from day 1 of this feature
Can’t imagine not having round up enabled one of my favourite monzo features.
So I’m on £83.72 (ISH) since September.
It was a bit of a struggle to work out since round ups have been going to a couple of pots over this time and as most of my spending is done on a credit card now I had tons of manual roundups to calculate!
I regularly spend my round ups. Monzo making unlocking pots a doddle means I don’t bother locking them. That leads to me spending it .
I only spend my round up pots on games normally
Average of 43p
In total £199.15 over 451 round ups (£0.44 average), not bad since I only started my account in February. (or bad because I only started my account in February?!!)
This is the one pot I ‘use’ though, so when it gets to £20~odd I’ll clear it down.
Not sure when I started the pot but I would hazard a guess at November 18:
£167.29 rounded up in 359 round ups with a £0.47 average.
I tend to set a £15-25 target on this pot and move it to another more specific pot when the target is reached.
Interesting to see the average hovers between 41-48 for the majority.
I used to put all my physical change pre-monzo in a jar - I heard a great tip that every now and again you should throw some £1 and £2 coins in to really boost what is in there.
Now I am about 99% cashless I still try to follow this method.
I have over £300 in my round up pot thanks to once a week I have a scheduled payment going in of £5 to ‘boost’ the amount in there. I have slightly increased my earnings recently so today increased the weekly amount to £10 going in every Monday.
I find it really helps to build the amount in the pot without really noticing in it my main account.
My target is £1000 in a year
