Inviting Friends to Speed Up Card Delivery


(Hannah Cowley) #1

Hi
I’ve just signed up. I was prompted to share a link with 3 friends (or more) to speed up my card arrival date. I’ve done that twice to the same 3 people as the app will only open at the “refer 3 friends page”.
Will I receive my card in the next few weeks (regardless of whether my friends do indeed sign up) or have I not completed the sign up process?

If they dont sign up you wont be able to skip the queue.
But if you wanted to skip it, you can do at https://monzo.com/oldstreet/

As of a month ago, the wait time was less than a few weeks so you should be fine :slight_smile:

I don’t think you’ll be able to use the link that Josh posted unfortunately because you’ve already registered :see_no_evil: but I’m pretty sure that your friends don’t actually have to sign up, all you have to do is invite them in order to get your place in the queue bumped up, I’ll try to find a post that confirms that…

Thank you :slight_smile:

This is as close as I can get -

You can reserve your place in the queue and improve your position by inviting friends.

From the recent Android app launch blog post.

There’s no mention that your friends have to sign up, in order for the invites to count.

Theres always ways around that :wink:
I.e. gmail allows you to have points inbetween characters and will still come to you. i.e. jkb114@gmail.com is the same as j.kb114@gmail.com

and if your email is say

jesus.christ@gmail.com
then
jesus.christ@googlemail.com also works!

Don’t worry - it does work even if you have already signed up :slight_smile:
