What’s a Golden Ticket?

Golden Tickets are the perfect way to invite your friends to Monzo! They’re a special link you can share to help them open a Monzo account easily, and for you to both get a £5 reward 💸

How do I get one?

All existing Monzo customers have Golden Tickets to share with their friends 🎫

To send someone a Golden Ticket:

  1. Head to the Payments tab in your app
  2. Tap ‘Invite friends’, or tap the Golden Ticket icon in the top right-hand corner of your screen

How do I share one?

You can either invite a contact from your list, or tap to share your personalised link with a friend over text, email or your favourite messaging app.

How do I redeem one?

If someone’s sent you a Golden Ticket (lucky you!) you can use it to set up a Monzo account, and get £5 when you first spend on your Monzo card.

  1. Tap on the link you’ve been sent
  2. Enter your email address to claim your £5 reward
  3. Download the Monzo app, and sign up using the same email address

Why do you have them?

We originally started giving out Golden Tickets because there was a waiting list for Monzo. They let existing Monzo users invite their friends and help them skip the queue.

We’re happy to say that there’s no longer a waiting list to sign up to Monzo, but we’ve kept Golden Tickets around so you can keep inviting your friends to Monzo easily, and get a reward when you do 😃
