I’m totally sold on Mondo at this point. So I’m going through my bank statement and finding things that aren’t Mondo top-ups, which is pretty much all online services that have my old card saved, and changing the card they have saved for me.
This isn’t the first time I’ve done this though. Every time a card expires, I have a bunch of services to tell about the new card details.
So I had this idea. Initially I thought it could be a product in itself but actually Mondo are probably in the best position to make it, or at least explain why it’s not possible.
The idea is a proxy card that handles the subscriptions, and then takes a payment from your actual card. This means that you’d only have to update your new card details in one place.
The only real problem I can think of for this is that expiry date of the proxy card. So the first question is there any way to create a debit/credit card with a longer than average expiry date?
My second question is: Is there any other legal reasons this isn’t possible? (Would you technically be committing fraud by paying with a card not owned by you…? Seems unlikely considering lots of people buy stuff with their employer’s company card all the time.)
My third question is: Would Mondo ever consider this? Obviously it’s quite removed from the products you currently have… But definitely fits into the mission as I understand it.
