So I got the email offering me to upgrade to the current account (on Android), which initially I was unsure about. I’ve been happy with how the prepaid card works and didn’t feel much need to move to current account. The only thing I’d have liked is to be able to pay non Monzo users.
But the email convinced me otherwise, providing a number of incentives and most importantly, highlighting that you’ll be able to use the card in the same way, the direct quote:
"If you’re thinking “I really like my card as it is”, don’t fear. You can upgrade and then continue to use your Monzo account in exactly the same way. “”
But right now that doesn’t seem to be true. I can no longer use monzo.me to request money, nor can I top up via card payment (this aspect is mentioned in the email in Monzo’s defence).
I’m wondering what else I’ll find to be missing, I hope these omissions are addressed soon, I probably would have held off if I knew monzo.me was missing now.
