Monzo Premium: Six Months In Poll

So Monzo Premium has nearly been out for six months (thanks to @Nicbrown for reminding me!)

In the spirit of the Monzo Plus polls (and the Monzo Premium Flash Poll), I thought it’d be useful to see what folks’ intent is regarding Monzo Premium!


Have you subscribed to a paid Monzo account?
(If you did then cancelled, say yes)

  • Yes to Plus
  • Yes to Premium
  • Yes I’ve tried both
  • No

If you didn’t, why not?

  • Too expensive
  • No, or not enough, features of interest
  • Disagree with paywalling features
  • I haven’t yet but I plan to
  • No joint account support
  • I don’t have a Monzo account / Monzo’s not my main account
  • Something else (tell us below)

0 voters

If you did, will you stick with it?

  • Yes - it’s fine as it is
  • Yes - if I get new features
  • I’m going to downgrade / have already downgraded from Premium to Plus
  • I’m going to upgrade / have already upgraded from Plus to Premium
  • No - I plan to cancel (I’m on Premium)

Happy polling!

I thought I’d create a new topic for people to discuss reasons why they may or may not be cancelling Monzo Premium after the minimum term ends at the end of March for those who signed up in the first few days.

I’m undecided at the moment - it’s not that I’m disappointed in the features it provides, but that I don’t feel like I need them and Plus would suffice.

I’m interested to hear everyone else’s thoughts!

If you don’t mind me asking - why sign up in the first place then?

Thought I’d give it a try, see if it was worthwhile for me instead of standalone packages for insurance.

I thought I’d be travelling much more this year but that’s not going to be happening now so the lounge discounts and insurance aren’t as good a deal any more when all I’m using is the features of Plus.

Don’t even use my card these days so there’s no point paying to flex a metal card either :rofl:

Makes sense. Everyone’s in the same boat though so I imagine most people will have similar reasoning if they do decide to cancel - probably didn’t need a new thread for it as it’s been discussed at length on the other Plus/Premium threads.

So I accidentally said no to the first question, because I don’t know how to read properly. That is all. :man_facepalming:

Interesting to see virtual cards as the top Plus/Premium feature. I have a free Revolut account and can generate something like 5 virtual cards per month. Worth bearing in mind if you were considering upgrading to Plus or Premium just for this.

Great idea to sort a poll out, thanks!

Repeated ten times, so I’m guessing you want five joint accounts?

Ha, I’ll take a single for now - mine :+1:

I was thinking more for SEO purposes when :monzo: peeps search for feature requests. Which gives me a sinister idea… :thinking:

Another poll and still it’s really Google Export that keeps me paying the £5 a month, and I think that’s worth it for me. I am the most on top of my finances that I’ve ever been. It’s been my hard work to build a dashboard and then rebuild it for what I actually need, but now I know what is going on with my money in very good detail.

Could I cope without it? Probably. Now that I know I’m set up but I like better controls of my budget, I like the categories, I like the comparisons to last month.

Previously I said that if I wanted to cut down on my spending that even though it’s just £5, Plus would go first. I’m not sure that’s the case anymore. But it’s not because Monzo have improved or done anything special which is a bit of a shame.

Voted for Joint Accounts too. Partly for David but partly because I’ll need/want one this year I expect.

I’m not quite sure what you’re asking for. Could you be a bit clearer at all?
