What is Yonda?
Yonda earns you money you look forward to spending. It's a new spend and save app, that comes with a contactless prepaid card. What makes Yonda different is that you earn a rebate — called Coin — each time you spend at one of our partner shops, restaurants or experiences. Coin is real money that you can use to help you hit your savings goals and treat yourself or someone else. You can only spend what you have in your account, so you have full control over your spending and peace of mind. Just top up your card and start spending with Yonda.
Is Yonda a bank?
No. Your Yonda card is a prepaid card that you top up using your debit card. It is issued by GVS Prepaid Ltd, an Electronic Money Institution authorised in the UK by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) with Firm Reference number 900230. GVS Prepaid is a subsidiary of Blackhawk Network business.
Is the money I put on my Yonda card safe?
Your money is fully protected as Yonda has an E-Money Licence from the FCA. This means that your money is protected in a safeguarded account. You're the only person who controls what happens with the money in your account.
Do I need to be a UK resident?
Yes. For now, you need to live in the UK to get a Yonda card. But we want to share that Minted feeling with more people in more places, so watch this space!
What age do I need to be?
For now, you need to be at least 18 to get a Yonda card. We're working on making it available to people younger than that so bear with us if you're not quite old enough yet.
Do I have to pay to get a Yonda card?
Nope – we’ll send you a card for free. Activate it and start spending, and you’ll soon be coining it in. Keep using your Yonda card and it won’t cost you a penny, in fact you could earn pounds.
Do you offer joint accounts?
No, we don't at the moment. But because we don't charge you any fees, you and your partner can each have your own card without any extra cost, and rack up plenty of Coin between you to use however you want.
