So I’ve just submitted my ID to enrol on CA testing. I’ve hit a stumbling block on how I’m going to integrate this into my financial life. Do I keep my salary going into LegacyBank CA, and then put a standing order to Monzo CA for bills / spending? Or do I move salary and 99% of outgoings to Monzo, and a small standing order to LegacyBank CA to use as a redundancy? Do I also incorporate an allowance to Monzo Beta prepay alongside the above two (to maintain use of Monzo2Monzo payments)?
How are others shaping their finances around multiple payment methods, the desire to give the Monzo CA decent transaction volume, the need to keep a backup option suitably financed?
Part of me wants to keep an even split along all three: but I’ll need to start spending more for a decent volume of transactions… Monzo, any chance of a bursary to help with my testing?
