More than 380,000 people are using Monzo to round up their payments to the nearest pound and put the spare change in a Pot.
So we asked you how much you’ve saved using round-ups, and what you’re going to do with the money. And lots of you are planning to put it towards your next holiday!

I'm pretending it's not there. I'll use it for a trip somewhere fun.
Here’s where you’re going and how much you’ve saved so far! Perfect if you need some saving motivation or holiday inspiration.
Some of you are saving up for family holidays
So wholesome 🧡

Mainly using them for spending money on holidays. Managed to save £150 for an weekend in Oslo. I've also set myself a target of £250 for a week in Slovenia/Austria in August. It's such a great idea 😉— Tom Casson (@TomCassonTweets) May 17, 2019
While some of you are going further afield

Try it out yourself!
Whenever you buy something that costs more than £1 with Monzo, you can choose to round up your purchases and put the spare change in a Pot.
To get started:
- Head to the Account tab in your app
- Create a Pot (or edit an existing one)
- Turn on the switch to ‘Round up transactions’
We’ll show you the spare change we added to your pot alongside the original transaction, so you can see what you bought as well as the amount we rounded up.
If you want to start smaller, you can round up your purchases to the nearest 50p or 10p instead, through our integration with automation platform If This, Then That (IFTTT).
You’ll need to connect your Monzo account to IFTTT – just click the links above and follow the instructions to get started!
Download Monzo to round up your purchases and set the spare change aside!
