Im not sure if there is ever going to be a higher tier than the current plus, but what would you like to see in the next tier of plus?
Metal card would be nice.
I expect we will see some of the features of “old Plus” making a return - I think the extra things in addition to normal Plus will probably also include travel-oriented things like insurance and possibly even airport lounge access?
There is and they confirmed it at launch. It’s already done
Yes, it’s already on public record that they had planned for a simultaneous launch but then put off the more premium tier due to COVID.
That’s one of the things that I think we can take as a clue to there being travel-related features included.
Anyone else remember the days when a bank was just a bank?
Yes, about 5 years ago!
Seems an age ago now. Back in the olden days people would commonly pick a bank based on their nearest branches - I doubt many do this now (unless they have been hit by a branch closure and specifically want to move to a bank which still has a branch). Things have changed so quickly, looking back.
Yeah, my first bank, at aged 16, was NatWest, purely because I started work, work said I needed a bank account, and NatWest were next door to work.
No other considerations at the time.
Stayed with them for about 14 years I think.
Yes, my first ever bank account was opened for me by my parents, and we picked it because it was a local branch where my mum already had an account. You got a free Money Box to take home to promote saving, too.
I still have the account now, years later, and I hope to continue keeping it open as it is having a positive impact on my credit history, having been opened long before any of my other accounts. Of course, I now actually use the other accounts which generally fit my needs better, and hardly use my old account at all. But even for nostalgia reasons, I think I’ll keep the account open.
PS: I also still have the money box!
I’d like to see whatever Monzo had planned.
I care not one jot for a metal card, but then I’m not out and about flashing it everywhere so people can look and go ‘ohhhh a metal card you must be super special’… but seriously, what is the fascination with a metal card? I don’t get it at all (each to their own and all that).
A bank card that also allows you to open parcels with ease?
Yes you do.
why have a leather wallet as opposed to a plastic wallet , why eat heinz baked beans when you can get other brands which dont cost as much , why buy nike trainers ???
These are not just beans these are HeInZs beans
I can’t wait for my metal card to pop up on Google Pay and for people to go ‘ohhhh a picture of a metal card you must be super special’.
I want a Metal Card so i can flex on all the retail staff - Joke.
I actually want it to look speshul
I want to perfect throwing my metal card to take caps off beer bottles as a party trick
Pure Skill. Cant do that with a plastic card. All the more reason for a Metal Card
