Banking re-thought and done properly
I don’t often leave reviews for apps but Monzo has changed the way I bank/save. Immediate notifications on spends and the ability to add notes and receipts on each transaction works brilliantly. After spending for a short time you have the ability to search and filter on particular transactions to determine how much you’ve spent and average spend. Set up payees and send money is simple and quick. Saving pots are easy to set up and I find it great to keep savings separate. The coin jar is a great feature (rounding up each transaction to the nearest pound) for saving little bits at a time is brilliant and it builds up quicker than you’d expect. I know some people moan about Apple Pay being missing but I’m sure it’ll come soon which will then make the experience even better. I started using Monzo just over a year ago and I’ve since made it my main account including all my direct debits and have my salary paid in. It’s always improving and am excited to see how it develops in the near future. If you’re thinking of joining I can’t recommend it highly enough. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
UPDATE 2 - if we could have the ability to split a transaction across budgets that would be amazing! Sometimes I’ll buy things during my weekly food shop that would ideally come under another budget. Adding this functionally would make my budgeting 100% accurate 🙂
UPDATE - I am still loving this app however there is one improvement that could be made. Not everyone gets paid at the end of each month so when the budgets for the different categories reset on the 1st I have to do some extra calculations to make sure my finance are correct. I get paid on the 19th of each month so it might be nice to add in a feature when you can specify when your new budget month begins?
ORIGINAL REVIEW - I am LOVING my new bank account with Monzo it’s sorted our finances out and the instant transaction details is super helpful. Being able to set budgets for different categories of spends means that I don’t now need to run two separate apps. I have high hopes for having a well organised financial future. We are still in the first month of using it but so far it has been amazing!
