Your May monthly update

The month of May sure has gone quickly and, although we may all be disappointed by the end of Game of Thrones, there’s still plenty of good stuff to look forward to in the Monese app.

So without further ado, let’s take a look at this month’s feature update, starting with...

A better way to budget

May-Round-Up-Budgeting v2 The new budget screen allows you to set a monthly spend limit on your account

Rather than keeping it in a spreadsheet, or even a dedicated budgeting app, we think your monthly budget should be integrated right into your current account. Now you can use Monese to set a monthly spending limit, neatly visualised in the new Budget screen (which you'll find in the Spending section).

Being attentive to your actual spending (relative to what you want to spend) is the best way to keep it under control. While you’ll always have the freedom to exceed you set spend limit, the Monese Budgets feature aims to help you moderate your spending when you need to.

Instant top-ups are now free for all

1920-free-top-up-Phone-v3 Top up instantly at no cost, whatever pricing plan you’re on

Regardless of which payment plan you’re on, instant top-ups made using debit cards (whether they're from the EEA or not) are now absolutely free. This means that those on the Starter or Plus plan can now top up as many times as they like, and save money in the process.

Avios referrals

AVIOS-BLOG-IMAGE-2 You can now choose Avios as a reward when anyone uses your referral code to open an account and make their first card payment

Our much-loved Invite and Earn program lets you put a little more money in your account simply for referring other people to the app. Now you can opt to turn that earning into Avios points instead of cash. Take advantage of this every time a newly arrived friend or family member uses your referral code to sign up and makes their first card transaction.

Apple Pay support for Iceland and Norway

May-Round-Up-Apple Pay v3 Apple Pay is an easy, quick and secure way to pay with your iPhone, available for all Monese personal cards in selected countries

Apple Pay is the easy, fast and secure way to shop online and in-store. We’ve added support for more countries, meaning that you can add your personal Monese cards to your Apple Wallet in the UK, France, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Spain and Sweden - and, as of this month, Iceland and Norway too!

And you'll be able to use it in more countries soon...

...And finally

May-Round-Up-Pots v1-Accounting-details Your app’s new Account screen in all its glory

This month also saw the release of a more streamlined Account screen, giving you access to just what you need, right when you need it. We’re also happy to say you’re in good company! Because this month Monese customer sign-ups passed the 1 million mark!

Remember, we’re always looking to improve your money management experience in every way we can – so we’d love to hear your thoughts on how the Monese app is working for you and what other extra features you’d like to see in the future.
