Stay ahead of credit card debt with a Credit Card Pot 🏃

Hey everyone, :wave:

We’ve got another new type of Pot for everyone: meet Credit Card Pots! :tada:

A Credit Card Pot is designed to help you automatically set money aside and use that money to pay your credit card balance. :credit_card:

All you have to do is choose how much of your credit card bill you want to pay off each month. We’ll do the math and move that money into your Credit Card Pot as you spend with your credit cards.

You’ll need to set up payments to come from your Monzo account through your credit card issuer. You can also set up auto-pay so the bill is automatically paid from your Credit Card Pot when it’s due. :money_with_wings:

Read more in our blog post.

We’re initially only supporting the most popular credit cards linked to Monzo via Plaid.

  • Supported credit card institutions
    • Chase
    • American Express
    • Bank of America
    • Discover
    • Capital One
    • Citibank
    • Wells Fargo
    • Barclaycard
    • Credit One Bank

If your linked credit card is not supported yet, let us know through the in-app feedback form so we can look into it. Thanks!


The UK really strives for this.

It’s a shame innovation is flying in the USA vs here.

What makes it easier, more adaptable to customer requirements opposed to the UK?


Would this only work if you had the premium account where you can get open banking to link all your credit cards? I’ve moved everything to ulster now and open banking is Freeee with main stream banks. Kinda trust the bricks and mortar banks better at the moment and customer service seems to be lacking on the challenger banks

This is a US product where all customers get the ability to connect accounts through Plaid.

For the UK, I’d very much hope for there to be a native Flex pot soon, followed by any open banking connected account.

My suspicion is that Plus will probably end up being discontinued with only Premium as the paid for account. That’ll probably mean that credit cards can be connected for free. A credit card pot would be a massive draw as part of that.

But who knows?

That all said, US team is rocking is right now. Standing on the shoulders of UK giants.


Have Monzo quietly acquired DASBudget or am I reading too much into this tweet?

The whole Our apps thing could simply be because the creator works at Monzo too, but still seems odd.

Perhaps just wishful thinking on my part though. Like the person who tweeted them, I’d love to see that happen as well.

Edit: I think I’m just completely misinterpreting their use of our! Our can also mean mine and theirs, so upon reflection I think that’s what they mean. Which means ignore me, nothing to see here! :100: wishful thinking :slightly_frowning_face:

You’re reading too deep, my friend. Both are their own products :smile:


It’s interesting seeing how they compare.

They’re both tackling the same problem in different ways, with Monzo still being very much a work in progress, but with the lessons learnt from Das, Simple and all that came before it.

I can’t wait to see what happens next (and for the UK to start getting good stuff from the US team in return :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:).


I’d love this for the UK.

Then throw in roundups for the credit card transfers to a savings pot and you’ve got me 100%.


Got excited only to realise this is a US topic, maybe one day!


Just incase anyone wants Monzo’s credit card pot image for their own pot they pay their credit card bills from, since even that isn’t available in the U.K., I’ve extracted it from the blog post:


I’m kinda stunned this hasn’t been rolled out to the UK too. It’s been asked for for years…


Folks, thanks to some wonderful customers who wrote in to request support, we’ve been able to turn on support for the following additional institutions in Credit Card Pots:
