The problem with the Monzo forum is, that there appears to be a maturity issue there. Some of the carp posted is quite literally, unbelievable, the utterings of some, not all I hasten to add, who appear to have little life experience or common sense. I’m sorry if that comes across as harsh, but unfortunately that is the impression that often comes across. The constant cooing and ahhhing over a banking product is a bit tiresome to be honest. If someone flashed their Monzo card or indeed any banking card at me, plastic, metal or otherwise, I’d probably tut and mutter something disgracefully obnoxious under my breath. I cannot abide pretentious look at me types who think people actually care what they pull out of their purse or wallet. At the end of the day, they’re just a bank.
I’m a Starling customer, but I don’t get flushes and feelings of awesomeness from their product. They’re good and what’s more, they no longer have a forum and that in my opinion is good too.
