Read the article

Are you determined to stay fit *and* sort out your finances in 2022? Or maybe you need some extra motivation to go for a run when it’s cold out?

Connect your Monzo account to Strava or Fitbit and save money as you cycle, run, or whenever you hit your step count!

How to start saving as you run or cycle

You’ll need an app called IFTTT, which stands for “If This, Then That’. It lets you connect your Monzo account with other apps you use, and set up rules to automatically move your money around.

If you choose to connect your Monzo account to IFTTT, you’ll give the app permission to do things like move money in and out of your Pots. You can find out more in their privacy policy.

To set it up:

  1. Head to ‘Save as you run or cycle with Strava’ and tap ‘Connect’

  2. Choose the Pot you want to put money in, and tap ‘Save’

Now every time you run or cycle you’ll be saving into your Pot! 🏃‍♀️
