Monzo Labs: Connected Credit Cards

I have an update for everyone here, I hope this helps


@mycl sorry my Halifax card is disconnected again.

Hey @mycl my Halifax card is still not updating as well.

You checked it out a couple of weeks ago for me (via app chat), and got me to reconnect the card, but I hadn’t made any further payments to it until recently so was not aware if the balance was still not updating or if it was fixed. It’s still not updating though :cry:.

Looking back I’m not sure it has ever updated since Truelayer switched from screen-scraping to the open banking APIs. (Aside from when I disconnect and reconnect the card obviously).

Dear god…please let me connect my amex card this century!!:palms_up_together:


My only dilemma with them launching Amex integration is that I’ll then want my Amex transactions to count against summary / budgets :smile:. Obviously they won’t to start with but I think that’s the longer term goal?


That would be perfect :pray: . I’m really stuck atm trying to work out the best way to keep tabs on both. Gone through so many Emma, Yolts copies but I really just want the same budgeting Monzo has but including Amex transactions.

Thanks for flagging about Halifax @Chris_R, @monzo2018 - I’ll look into it!


Thanks :blush:

Seconded :joy: I’m too impatient to wait

Any news on MBNA which seems to have been in staff testing for ages and I think was one of the top requested cards to support?

I raised weeks ago my Lloyd’s card isn’t updating. Can you check that out too please. :hugs:

My Natwest card isn’t updating either

I spoke to Barclaycard today and they plan to be on the new TrueLayer system by Jan 2020, they are doing all their Christmas work now to get it out of the way?
They said the reason for the delay is because they are merging the Barclaycard App and the Barclays app into one

Wonder what features the Barclaycard app had that the main Barclays didn’t once you connected the credit card under in?

You can now use any app. They are exactly the same now. It’s just the Barclaycard app that has had a makeover. Used to look like trash now it looks good.

Hey @mycl just wondering if there was any update on this? My connected Halifax credit cards still don’t update.

Same issue here.

Is this still active? I’d love to be able to add my Barclaycard however nothing is showing up in my Monzo Labs??

Barclaycard is not currently available. It was tested initially but there were some issues with their open banking connection which have not yet been resolved. The company Monzo use to facilitate open banking connections have said they are hoping to have Barclaycard working soon

But connections for some other credit cards are currently working.
