Monese referral bonus £15 this month

Monese has just increased the bonus to £15 for this month. Free card as well, I believe

Get a £15 welcome gift when you open a Monese account and do the first transaction with the Monese Card. Just use my code: JOHNS345. Download the Monese app here: https://monese.app.link/EK6G1B90yT?invite=JOHNS345

£15 ain’t worth it. Trust me. British residents should never get a Monese unless you want to be charged on almost everything you do, including depositing and withdrawing cash.

It’s the best I’ve found as a “night out” card. Free bank transfers, card has always been reliable for me. I tend to use it for UK trips, where I want to keep a handle on my budget.

No good as your main account though! Agreed.

Even as a night out card it’s rubbish. Get a Cashplus prepaid card instead, one-off fee of £5 for the card, or even Revolut.

On this price scale?

What does it offer that would justify paying for a card compared to Monese giving you a free card and £15?

The FlexPlus that has no monthly free charges £0.99 per purchase. That’s crazy.

Revolut would be a good alternative, but I actually use the account occasionally for FX, so no good as a card to burn.

Debit card top up charges have also been removed

They need to update the wording though…

This seems to be more or less permanent now.

Further enhanced referral programme

Bigger possible reward, but referree has to use the card quite a bit first

Back again, for up to £20 for referee and £5 (I think - it’s not clear) for referred.

Hopefully a sign that Monese is getting through the crisis!

Monese was such a stable business model to begin with I don’t see them going anywhere

Hardstuck getting a bank account because of ID? No problem, just be in the U.K. or EU and provide your ID and get your card sent to X address

Not only that, we can give you: support in your language. Big help to communities that keep to themselves like Brazilian Portuguese speakers & even communities that have a decent handling of English but prefer to deal with financials in their mother tongue

Me neither, but they did shut down referrals and two (I think) offices at the start of the pandemic, so they clearly faced some tough choices at least. I meant really that the returnof referrals is hopefully a sign they’re back to being proactive

Sounds like risk management, they couldn’t know what adverse affect the pandemic would have on their customers who could potentially cancel a large portion of revenue

Kill referrals to shore up finances and prevent unprofitable customers in the short-term, pair with closing offices that are large expenses to further strengthen financial position of the company

Makes sense even if it wasn’t a tough choice

Just out of curiosity, doe’s anyone know if Monese are actually making a profit yet?

I’ve tried to find out, as I am a fan of theirs, but there seems to be very little info out there.

True! It’s a positive sign though, either way

They seem to keep a tight lid on it. So, no!
