Starling Bank is introducing the ‘Connected Card’ for personal accounts, a second card, which customers can link to their existing account and give to anyone.
Getting in food and other essential supplies is a big challenge for everyone who is self-isolating. That’s why Starling has developed a new feature to help customers relying on friends, neighbours and community volunteers to get their shopping for them.
From today, Starling personal account customers who need this support will be able to request a second card connected to their account via the Spaces section of the app. The Connected card is a debit card that can be given to someone you trust so they can buy groceries and other essentials for you.
The money comes out of a designated Space you’ll set aside – rather than your main account – and it’s capped at £200, so you’re always in control.
