Monzo Plus - Bi-Weekly Update 28th November 2019

I made the comment in another thread about these updates being more of a show and tell rather than a conversation/feedback session.

Similar feel with this one… :grimacing:

That wouldn’t work if the account ‘fell between’ Two and Three though, would it.

We don’t know if they are going to be tiered, if not there’d be nothing wrong with using Four.

Basically true to Plus form, we are lacking any real information.

Then what? Ultra-Privilege?

Without knowing what the account includes, pros and cons of each one. I quite like the idea of basing them off colours.

Monzo Coral / Monzo Coral Current Account (Has to be the Free Account)
Monzo Blue / Monzo Blue Current Account
Monzo Red / Monzo Red Current Account

I think the shorthands are nice and simple, I like the sound of them when you refer to them just by Monzo ‘Colour’ rather than current account.

Leaves room for expansion with more variants and I also think it’s a nice way if the accounts aren’t necessarily tiered, doesn’t lend to one being better than the other.

It would be good if the colours were tied to the cards though. If cards had patterns you could maybe mix colours with pattern designs i.e have them called:
Monzo Coral
Monzo Camo
Monzo Red

I would like to know what becomes of those who didn’t cancel whenever the new Plus alights. Will they get migrated onwards? Forgotten?

The name might be a fun exercise but it is a bit pointless, could easily be referred to as bish, bash, bosh at least until the whole thing has been fleshed out.

Wow. Metal then.

Because that’s really what I want from a bank, the tip of top, the cream of the crop, metal or nothing!!

Sorry, the focus on such material possessions is, to me, absurd. Offer a metal card all you like, but don’t base a product offering on it.

I couldn’t agree more. I think it is a gimmick but have no problem if people want to pay extra for one but to use it as a basis to incorporate other features feels wrong.

We have a winner

As others have expressed this naming exercise seems like a distraction from the concerns of the majority on pay walling app functionality. Do you need the names now? why don’t we have some codenames/temporary names (bish, bash, bosh works for me) and when the products are well defined some clever names can be decided.
