One of my fave features of the prepaid Monzo card was the way the notifications would come up with something like:
You spent 5.60 at Pret . You’ve spent 17.10 today.
That last bit - showing me how much I spent today - was really useful and probably the single most effective thing I’ve ever had to help me be aware of how much I’ve spent, keep a lid on the small purchases that gradually steal all my money, and stick to my daily budget.
It’s not there in the current account app. The notifications are bigger and appear at the top of the notification area, and they don’t tell me how much I’ve spent in the day. I can see that if I click on the app. But I don’t see it automatically which means it doesn’t have the positive effect on my spending behaviours that I’m looking for.
Can you bring this back in a future release please? It’s one of my favourite things about Monzo!
(I’m using the Android app, BTW)
