We’ve made this thread to answer some of the most common questions we’re getting about our US launch. Let us know if there’s else you think we should add.
When is Monzo coming to the USA?
Soon! We’ll be opening the first US Monzo accounts this summer.
Like we did when we first got started in the UK, we’ll host in-person events in major US cities, a few hundred people at a time. This will let us meet and speak to our early users, and gives you a chance to meet the people behind the product.
Want us to come to your city? Get your local friends to join the waitlist and let us know you’d come to an event — we’ll do our best to stop by!
What’s the best way to stay up to date on what’s happening and when?
Any of these would work:
- Follow us on Twitter!
- Join the waitlist to get regular email updates!
- Ask us right here on the forum!
- Come to our first events — we’d love to meet you!
What’s with the waitlist?
We’re taking our time opening up Monzo in the US so we have the chance to talk to you, get feedback, and build the right kind of bank. By joining the waitlist, you’re signing up to hear about our progress, get invited to our launch events, and be one of the first to get access to Monzo US. You can join the waitlist here.
Where can I share feedback or ideas for Monzo in the USA?
Here on the forum. Please drop any thoughts here in the Monzo USA category so we can keep everything all in one place.
I have a UK Monzo account, will I be able to switch to a US account?
Keep in mind that this could still change. But here’s our latest answer to this question:
Can I send money to my friends in the US?
Not just yet. At launch, payments with friends will be limited to people with accounts from the same country as you, but we plan to add support for international peer to peer payments later!
I have a UK Monzo account, will I get a referral bonus when I refer my American friends to sign up?
Not right now, but stay tuned for updates on what referral in the US will look like.
I’m in the US and on the waitlist, how can I get a flag on my avatar?
