Monzo Maestro - Tesco Bank


#1

It’s such a small thing, but it’s affecting my newfound banking OCD :joy:

I’ve just added my Monzo card to the Tesco Bank app, and it’s recorded it as a Maestro!


#2

Barclaycard seem to think it is a Mæstro too, hence asking for a start date or serial number each time you try to use it to pay your monthly bill!

Very odd since the BIN numbers for maestro start with a 6!


(Michael) #4

How do you pay it? Via the app?

Mine doesn’t ask for either of those :confused:


#5

I just added it to the app (I inputted the card number, rather than “scanning the card”, which is an option).

Automatically came up with the Meastro logo.


#6

Inputting card data thru their website on a browser, so app must be written differently, DOH!

EDIT the Homer Simpson’s “DOH” addressed towards Barclaycard IT not the above user!

Yeah, the Barclaycard app requests an issue number :frowning:

Setting it to 1 worked fine for me, but I don’t know why some things think it’s a Maestro card. Do Maestro cards even exist still? I’ve never seen one, and only know of them because of their logos on shopfronts :confused:

Yes. Maestro still exists, I used one in my local Co-op this morning!

I actually vaguely remember having a splash plastic card when I was like 13/14 :joy:

The difference with Splash card is it is Not a Maestro Debit card but a Prepaid Maestro Debit card (so like comparing Monzo’s original prepaid card with the full debit card they have now)

Ah true!

Jesus, that site is horrible!

I mean it still uses Flash!
