When the locked pots feature came out you were able to lock away your money until a pre-specified date in the future. I LOVED this feature meaning I wasn’t tempted to dip into my savings pot come the end of the month when I didn’t really need to.
Monzo brought out a release that allowed you to unlock your pot before the specified date and completely raid your savings; meaning I spent my £600 I had saved for my next holiday on things I didn’t need!!
I understand that users were requesting access to their locked pots meaning more and more support queries and time spent unlocking these pots.
I LOVE Monzo, I’ve had about 10 different friends sign up as a result of me talking about it. I love all the features, I love the UI, I love the card… I love everything about it… except the fact I can now unlock a locked pot…
I’ve actually started looking for another app that would allow this feature to use along side my Monzo simply for savings. Please tell me there’s consideration for this (properly) locked pots to return to Monzo. I’ve read there’s a possibility of cool-off periods for unlocking or even having to opt in to early unlocks.
@Monzo… I am a software developer!! I have even considered applying for a job at Monzo so I can fight for this feature to be reinstated. Please help a (very bad at saving my money) guy out.
