Lead Time for Card Order / Delivery

So I’ve just found out about this card and it sounds like just what I need for my holiday in 2 weeks. Judging by the number of people in the queue in front of me I’m wondering if I may have left it a little late. Does anybody happen to know what the lead time is to get the card delivered?

If you grab yourself a golden ticket from here, you’ll be able to skip the queue.

Then, deposit the £100 into your account straight away & the card will be sent to you 1st class so you’ve got plenty of time :slight_smile:

My wife and I have just got ours. With no queue jumps it was about ten days from request to delivery.

By recommending Monzo to my wife, I jumped the queue by about a day, maybe two; which is a bone of contention, so not a course of action I would recommend! :wink:

Obviously lots of factors can affect how quickly Monzo can process the queue so your application could be a bit shorter or longer than that. We applied directly after Martin Lewis had recommended Monzo on the telly, which I believe resulted in a surge in demand.

Hi, I’m going on holiday in 18 days and was just wondering how long it would take to arrive as I’m currently 25,837th, so not exactly hopeful it’ll arrive in time. Any advice??

Hi Catrin, I’ve moved your post here, as this question was answered recently, I hope that helps :slight_smile:

If I recall, that’s roughly the same length of queue that Claire and started on, so I would hope you will receive your card with a fair few days to spare. Do have a plan B in mind though, just in case. I hope you have a great holiday!


Forgive me, if this is a ridiculously common thread. I’m going away in 13 days, and was wondering if my card will arrive in time? I read somewhere about being able to top up £100 as a deposit and get yourself bumped up the queue? Is there a way of doing this?

Really would like my card to arrive in time to go to Florence with my partner; would make everything so much easier!!

Hi Lily :wave:

I’ve moved your post here as hopefully the first reply in this topic answers your question, just let us know if there’s anything else you’re not sure about :slight_smile:

Newbie here. I registered for an account via the bump-up link on the MoneysavingExpert site. I have submitted my passport ID details and the short 5-second video and my question is when will I receive my card? I’m travelling to Florida in under 2 weeks and would love this card to be my main card. Will it arrive in time? Thanks in advance.

If you have done the initial £100 top up it should arrive within 1-2 days. You should have it by your holiday. :blush:


I’ve not be asked to deposit £100 yet - I’ve had this screen for over 5 days now:


That doesn’t sound quite right so I’d recommend contacting the support team by emailing help@monzo.con or sending a DM on Twitter.
