    I have an option to apply for an overdraft via the app.

    Select Account tab; there's a Find out about overdrafts button to tap on.

    I'm on the Android beta test stream.

    Yes, on iOS I have an "Overdraft available - find out about your overdraft option or switch it on" listed as an item on the main stream. Not interested, so i've not used it.

    There's also an option if you select the Account tab, "Find out about overdrafts"

    Plain vanilla iOS app, no beta anything.

    Option appeared for me on iOS when I downloaded the last app update. Offered me 750 which seems a bit ridiculous for me as I only have a 250 overdraft (which I have never used) on my main account with Yorkshire Bank/B

    I wont be considering using monzo as my main bank until they have the current account switch service and Apple Pay. Lack of branch access also scares me but I suppose as long as I keep accounts with bricks and mortar banks then that is workable

    Had the account with monzo since January

    According to this post on Monzo!!!8217;s forums the option should roll out to all in the next few days

    Yep. Got a push notification telling me about it today so I applied. Got a 500 limit which, as I mentioned in another thread, surprised me as I use the account very little and only small amounts.
