N26 Black renamed to N26 You

N26 have renamed their N26 Black offering to N26 You. I’ve been a happy N26 Black customer for 2 years now but I am starting to notice that there are a lack of new features being added. With the rename to N26 You, they appeared to only make small changes to the offering – you can now specify what colour card you would like. There are five colours to choose from: Ocean, Sand, Rhubarb, Aqua and Slate. N26 You is their middle offering costing €9.90 per month. It sits between their basic N26 account and their premium N26 Metal account.…

How long does it take to receive a N26 MasterCard?

Recently, my N26 Black MasterCard broke and I had to order a replacement. N26 offers two different postage methods for replacement cards – Express delivery which costs €19 delivered by DHL within 1-2 working days.

I decided I should do a…

However, I did note when the Black MasterCard arrive it was a bit flimsy. This is particularly worrying as…

N26: New online banking “app”

N26 recently launched a new online “app“ or as most people would call it a website. I was a bit confused when it was launched and the amount of comments about it on various forums online. It appeared that this was the first time they offered online banking which is not true. In fact, when this new online banking was launched it was missing a way to search transactions which is a big omission. This feature has now been added. I always leave it a few weeks before reviewing updated apps and websites as I know it takes a while…

N26 Black account Renewal

It has been far too long since I’ve made a post. I’ve got a long list of posts I want to do so hopefully I’ll get a post out every couple of days.
