Will contactless work instantly after defrosting?

If you freeze and then defrost your monzo card, will contactless work instantly, or do you need to use chip and pin before contactless works again? Just a thought!

Welcome to the forum.

It’s instant.

But bear in mind Chip & PIN needs to be used every so often, which might coincide.


Try it. Freeze your card and go to a vending machine, then watch it get declined. Then unfreeze your card, and try again.
