Try out new apps to help you and your finances and also get a free money bonus or voucher when you do.
I love trying out new apps that help me track my spending, put money into savings or earn me interest. Often they’ll also come with a welcome or referral offer, and I’ll share these and any other decent ones below.
New customer welcome offers
Money Dashboard: £4 Amazon voucher welcome
If you’re looking for an app to help manage multiple current accounts and credit cards then Money Dashboard is one of the original and best.
New customers can also get a £4 Amazon voucher (I’ll also get one) when they sign up and connect an account (via Open Finance technology).
You’ll be emailed the reward within five to seven days of doing this.
Curve: £10 welcome bonus
Curve is a smart card that lets you pay with a single debit card yet connect your other Visa and Mastercards to it via the app – letting you choose which one you with, even after the transaction. Here’s my full review.
When you sign up via this link you’ll be eligible for a £10 welcome bonus – double the standard referral offer of £5. There’s no need to enter the promo code as the link has tracking which will register the offer.
Once you’ve signed up you then need to spend on the card. If you don’t want to wait for the card to arrive in the post you can access the details to use it online via the Curve app, or add the card to your digital wallets such as Apple Pay.
To use the £10 reward you need to use the app to select the Curve Rewards option before you pay.
Snoop: £5 Amazon Voucher
Snoop is an app to help you track your spending. It also analyses your bank date to suggest ways you can save money. Right now there’s an offer to get a £5 Amazon voucher.
The offer is currently running until 31 October. You must go via the link below for the offer to track.
Once you’ve downloaded the app and signed up you need to connect a bank or credit card account and stay connected for 14 days. The voucher will be sent within 28 days.
Monese: £20 bonus (£5.95 fee)
Monese is another challenger bank that is 100% opened and operated via your mobile phone. You can get up to £15.05 free cash from Monese once you factor in a delivery charge for the card.
New customers can get up to £20 added to your account. You need to open an account with the promo code CLEVERCASH21. Use this when you sign up. It won’t work if you add it to the promo section of the app after registering.
You then need to order a debit card, which costs £4.95 to post. When it arrives activate it and transfer some money to your Monese account.
Then once you’ve used the debit card you’ll get £5 added to your account. Spend a total of £500 with the card and an extra £15 will be added.
