Introducing Monzo for 16-17 year olds

Ah shame. The new joint account chips look a lot cleaner.

(Marcus Nailor) #123

I wonder if the ‘new’ smaller chips still have the onboard storage which regular Monzo debit cards have? :thinking: Or whether that extra ‘artwork’ is just a pretty design :yum:


Good question

Isn’t it the same just more covered up by the plastic coating?

(Customer of Lloyds Banking Group, plc) #126

No idea what that means :joy:

(Marcus Nailor) #127

I’m not making that up am I? :joy: (Nah hehe, there’s just a few KB of onboard storage for ‘reasons’ … Futureproofing etc. I wonder if they still have that on the JA’s or not :stuck_out_tongue: I didn’t know if the storage was beneath the funky pattern or somewhere else buried inside the card :wink:

I try to keep myself in the know with everything Monzo :wink: But… I have no idea in this case :joy::innocent:


Small chip make a bank card look clean, for some reason. I don’t know why almost all fintech cards have this funny looking, larger chip? :frowning:

Fantastic news!
Is there a timeframe when you will be offering accounts to younger than 16? My son just turned 13 and I’m absolutely sick of his Osper card. He’s ready for Monzo but would be curious when Monzo will be ready for him :joy:

The only thing that’s been mentioned is:

They are hoping to lower it in the future.

(Geoffrey McCaleb) #132

Yeah, they’ve been saying that for a while. Was hoping now that 16-18’s are covered that there might be something a bit more definite. But happy to wait, just h8 Osper

Interestingly it seems there are some big changes coming to Osper. They’ve closed sign ups while they work on some exciting changes.

I would hope so, they haven’t updated their app in ages!
