After discovering Monzo via a random mention on a site I frequent (https://xenforo.com/community/threads/monzo-bank.133999/), I decided to take a look and managed to get a ‘Golden ticket’.
My current understanding is that this has allowed me to skip some sort of queue? The app does say that my card has been sent and will be with me by Thursday (although that’s wrong as I don’t go back down to my main address until Friday, but apps can’t read minds so I’ll let you off). This did cost me £100 though… it’s a good job my student loan came through recently.
Now, I don’t like prepaid cards. Can’t stand the things, don’t see the point. I was interested in the current account features, however after reading a bit more, it turns out VERY few people have one from Monzo at the moment, which basically means I just spent £100 on nothing?
Will I be able to withdraw the £100 as soon as the card arrives? I don’t need another prepaid account. Curve works quite well for me.
Having read stuff, it looks like that I’ve no hope of getting access to the current account systems in the near future… when will they be generally available?
Other than that, hi. I’m Liam. I am strongly opposed to emoji. Sorry.
P.S the funky forum software used here could do with some serious improvements to mobile use…
