Cash Chats ep 35: Ask Andy – Cancelling Tastecard, bank cashback offers & getting a Monzo

Another episode where I answer your questions.

This week I explain a simple trick to help cancel Tastecard, analyse whether it’s worth switching to get the new First Direct or HSBC cashback schemes, and finally how to jump the queue to get a Monzo bank card.

Here are the questions:


“I have been trying to cancel my Tastecard trial but no one is on the phones – I don’t want it renewing. Please help!


Is the new cashback scheme from First Direct any good? Should I switch bank for it?


I am interested to have a new Monzo card. How can I get it?

Listen to my answers in the podcast below, and you can find the links for further reading a little bit further down the page. Plus if you have any questions you’d like me to answer in a future episode, just get in touch!

It would be fantastic if you’d leave a review on iTunes or other podcast sites to help other people find us (the more reviews and ratings, the more likely it is they’ll appear higher up the charts). You can also subscribe and download on your phones so you never miss an episode!
