Britain's Best Banks

I switched from Monzo to Starling. And I'm so pleased I did. Monzo had issues with Argos card and pay at the pump. None of those issues I have with starling. The only thing I wish starling did that Monzo does is the payday early. I. Absolutely loved that feature. The sooner it comes. The sooner the 5 star reviews.
