After Monzo Plus was launched, we had a very quick (just a couple of days) flash poll to take the immediate temperature of folks on here.
The results were interesting:
We had lots of voters (212 on the first yes/no question): 64% said they had subscribed to Monzo Plus.
Of 83 people who wanted to explain why not, 51% felt there weren’t enough features of interest for them yet.
46% of people said that they would stick with Monzo Plus if there were new features in the pipeline. 31% of voters said they’d stick with it come what may.
The top three features were virtual cards, custom categories and other accounts in Monzo. The least popular feature was the offers.
For the next Plus features, there was an overwhelming preference to link virtual cards to pots (54%), for mobile phone or gadget insurance (37%) and for more connected account providers (34%). (A separate poll shows Amex as being the overwhelming leader there).
Now we’ve had some time to live with Plus for a while, I wanted to repeat the poll to see how opinions have changed (or not), to include some other feature suggestions from the discussion and to give folk much longer to think and respond.
So, without further ado, here’s the Big Plus Poll! Open until the end of August - or sooner if there’s a big Plus feature launch before then.
Edit: I’ve closed the poll today (19th August 2020) as we’re just over a month in from Monzo Plus.
