Introduce yourself 👋

Hello all,

  I have been a Monzo user for a while but I have just completed the switch over to full Monzo and thought I should get involved more in the community. I work in healthcare and play football as a hobby as well as organise the matches, I love monzo as I put the leftover change after the pitch booking into a pot which means every few weeks I can sort a pitch for free with the savings.

Hi all, I am Oliver. I have been an advertising professional until 2017, now I’ve moved to the UK and working as a trainer at a financial call centre. I have been quite a huge fan of Monzo since I was introduced to it. Although I still bank with Barfley’s (no typo), I am looking for every reason to try out Monzo as my primary bank. But I am still looking diligently for the balls to just switch my bank as I am quite chicken when it comes to finances. I am here to see what ideas are flying around here at Monzo, maybe also add in a few of mine along the way.


Hi Oliver & welcome :wave:

Think of Monzo as a bank on steroids. Instant notifications, data-rich transaction details, no additional oversea charges (when using card or Apple/Google Pay), Gambling block, card freezing, pots (very nice!), Get-paid-early, Salary Sorter, and so on…

I trialled Monzo in 2017 when it didn’t have all the features available but experienced the direction it was moving and switched to Monzo as my/our primary bank as soon as Joint Accounts launched. Never looked back. Make the switch - you won’t regret it :+1:

Hi I’m Karen… I live in Cambridge and travel regularly to visit my son in Sri Lanka.
Does Monzo work successfully when withdrawing cash from an ATM over there?
I’d like to find a way of getting cash out of my account with no charges of course!
I understand you can withdraw up to a maximum of £200 a month but want to know if it is always successful from atms.
Thanks and help on this gratefully received!

Welcome! What brought you to the Monzo Community? Want to tell us a bit about you and where you’re from? :pray:


It’s like Cilla Black is here…


Just wait to see who you’ve been paired up with in Monzo Community Blind Dating!


Sure! I am from United Kingdom in Bristol, I recently got Monzo as a new bank as my brother told me all about it and referred me to Monzo. And I found out about Monzo community through a support ticket I made and have been here since! I joined the community yesterday and having a great time so far. I was hoping to apply for a job at Monzo if I am lucky :joy::grin:
