Which NewDay credit cards do you want to see?

That’s weird!

NewDay is listed on Apple’s list so all of them should work. Maybe something has gone wrong with the implementation for the Amazon card specifically?

Did anything come of this? I’m checking the available accounts to show in Monzo and none of these are there.

Had forgot about this, would be interested in new day cards being added also.

To be a little less cryptic (:stuck_out_tongue:):

We’ve dropped a new “Test Other accounts” toggle into Labs. When this is turned on, you’ll see the option to connect cards from Amazon, Aqua, Argos, and NewDay. Please try it out and let us know how you get on! :pray:

As usual, you’ll need Monzo Plus or Monzo Premium to connect an account :sparkles:

Are you able to talk a bit about how you ended up with the ones you’ve got? Amazon seemed to be the big winner from the poll, but how did you settle on the others?

I’ll try and dig up the reasoning. It was actually a few months ago now that we came up with the list :see_no_evil:

We saw some issues with the connection flow during staff testing, and then some issues with refreshing transactions. We think these should be fixed now, but it’s hard to be sure—that’s why we’re putting this into Labs, so we can get more confidence before we turn it on for everyone :pray: So please do try it, and let us know how you get on!

Sadly I’ve ended up cancelling plus as not being able to connect my sainsburys card (which I use for most of my spend) just made it all totally unusable. The savings was the only thing keeping me using plus and now that Chase has brought out their offering it just isn’t worth (for me) paying the extra money anymore unfortunately. :disappointed:

Had a look but unfortunately I don’t own any of the cards. This does look good though and would like to see more lab tests like this ^^

If only Amazon could be added to Apple Pay now, still can’t believe it’s not possible.

To answer your question: supporting more cards a very small technical cost, but a non-negligible overall cost: it means more providers to test with, provide support for, etc.

We picked the four we did because they are major store brand cards (Amazon, Argos) and popular standalone NewDay brands (Aqua, Marbles).

As for the ones we didn’t include:

NewDay no longer seem to support Laura Ashley and Outfit.

It’s interesting to note that when we checked, we found that for the brands in the Arcadia Group—which I think was recently bought out of administration—their cards still work for existing customers, but don’t accrue loyalty points and seem to be unavailable for new customers. This includes Burton, Debenhams, Dorothy Perkins, Evans, Miss Selfridge, Topshop, Topman, Wallis.

If anyone wants us to add a particular NewDay brand, let us know—I’d be interested to hear it!

They are migrating their customers with old/redundant store-branded cards to the new in-house NewDay brand Pulse. It seems like that will be a major part of their customer base in the longer term so perhaps it’s one to consider supporting in the future.

Added Amazon & Aqua no issues

I also forgot to say that the Amazon card will eventually be “turning into” a Pulse card once NewDay’s deal with Amazon ends. It has already been announced that the agreement is not being renewed.

So Monzo probably want to support the Pulse card before that happens, to make sure affected customers don’t “lose” access to their card connection in the Monzo app.
