Yep, I am using it. And a friend of mine has also joined. But I think it might be iOS only at the moment, so maybe the waitlist is for the Android version? But if you’re on iOS, here’s a link on the App Store.
If you already bank with Barclays this might be something to consider. I don’t. And last week I went into my local branch with ID to have it validated so that ‘advanced features’ like Jars could be made available. Only when I rocked up I was told my branch doesn’t offer that facility (despite their app saying differently), the next nearest town also doesn’t, so she suggested a 38 mile round trip to my county town.
Why Barclays cannot validate someone electronically I do not know – they don’t even try. But given the other threads on the forum about amount of paper Barclays send out, I’m even less inclined.
Oh… and from what I’ve read about PingIt, you can only spend on the card from your main balance rather than directly from your saving jars. In which case you may as well use Starling Goals, Monzo Pots, or N26 Spaces as they suffer that same limitation. I particularly like HyperJar because you can link your card directly to a Jar. The ability to share a jar with someone else is a nice added extra.
