New to Monzo Plus: interest on your money and exclusive discounts

Read the article

In April this year we brought you Monzo Plus – a way for you to get more from your Monzo account for a monthly fee. Check out our future vision for Monzo Plus here.

A lot of banks give you the option to add bundles of extra features to your account. But they usually include a bunch of stuff you don’t need. So, we’re building Monzo Plus a little differently, so you can pick and choose the features that suit you.

Today, we’re adding two new things to Monzo Plus: we’re letting you earn interest on the balance in your Monzo account and giving you access to exclusive offers and discounts.

Yours at no extra cost

Because these are both Core features - ones that everyone gets with Monzo Plus – you don’t pay extra for them. Right now you can get Monzo Plus from £6 a month for 12 months. If you add any Custom features, like travel insurance, you’ll pay more.

If you signed up for Monzo Plus at the early bird price of £3 a month for 12 months then that’s what you’ll continue to pay. You get these two new features thrown in at no extra cost.

Earn interest on your balance

From today, anyone with Monzo Plus will earn 1.5% interest (AER)* on positive balances up to £4,000. That includes any money you’ve got saved in a regular Pot, but not money you’ve got in Savings Pots.

*AER is short for the Annual Equivalent Rate. It shows you what the rate would be yearly with compound interest – which is when you earn interest on top of interest.

Monzo Plus - interest

You’ll earn interest daily, and we’ll pay it into your account on the first day of every month. 

If you don’t want to earn interest on your money, you can opt out in the app.

Get exclusive discounts and offers

We’ve teamed up with a few different companies to give you access to exclusive deals we think you’ll love.
