    Any of you guys use Monzo or Starling? What are your thoughts on the new world of banking?

    I've never heard of either; what are they?

    They're online only bank accounts. They give you instant notifications whenever you buy something, which is their main selling point and their apps are miles ahead of 'normal' bank account apps. Just makes it so much easier to keep an eye on your finances.

    I use Monzo. It's great, for the reasons you outline in post #3.
    I do pretty much all my day-to-day spending from it.
