Useful app for money management and card spend notifications

The app has improved a lot over recent months. At first I mainly used it in conjunction with my Tandem card - works fine for that (although paperless statements would be great!). But now the other features have got better, so it's useful for getting a sense of how much I have left to spend. Plus it managed to catch a duplicate transaction for me where I'd been charged twice by a newsagent and I managed to get my money back for that, so that was a bonus.

I applied online, was accepted in five minutes, had the card within a week and started getting my cashback from then. It's mastercard, so widely accepted - I was mainly interested for the hassle free spending abroad as there are no fees for using it abroad (and still get cashback for foreign purchases). Seems like they were struggling with customer service from some of the reviews I've read, but I called up once to set up my direct debit and got through in under five mins. Guy on the end of the line was helpful and got it sorted fine. The app was pretty basic to . begin with, but has improved a fair bit over the past few months. I like seeing my other accounts all in one place, so it's one of the apps that I check into regularly on my phone. I like getting push notifications when I spend too. Overall I've had a great experience + thinking of getting a savings account with them too as they seem to have some of the best rates out there.

These guys have gone through it all and yet they're still updating and still building some solid features. In comparison to other challengers, Tandem have aggregation, two credit cards, mortgages and they're rolling out beta tests for 'autosavings' which sounds fantastic! Really can't wait to see what they've got planned for next year.

Terrible Company

Terrible terrible company!
I applied online and received no confirmation email.
3 days passed and no communication at all.
I spoke to them on the app and they took 3 days to reply (They are supposed to be an app only company) What a joke!
They then asked me to send photos of my drivers licence, utility bill. That wasn't good enough - they wanted a photo of my passport.
Another week has past and I have heard nothing still. They ignore my messages constantly.
Eventually I got through to them on the phone. They all sound like a bunch of amateurs who have no idea what they are doing. They advised an offer letter has been sent to me ...10 days ago!!!! I've received nothing!

I thought this card being an app based product would be a good alternative to the Halifax Clarity card. How wrong was I!

They are failing at what is supposed to be the main attraction of the product!

STAY AWAY FROM THIS POOR POOR COMPANY.

I suspect any problems with purchases and the customer would be left high and dry!

Had the worst experience with Tandem. Never even started using their card, was so disturbed by horrific customer service and abusive personnel. Still trying to get rid of this company and it already cost me months in distress. Nothing gets done. Constant abuse and stress. Hell on earth. Never touch this toxic organisation. Many regrets guaranteed.

As a recent addition to the banking landscape, I wanted to give Tandem's new credit card a try. As far as the product features go, the highlights are the 0.5% cashback on all spending and fee-free purchases abroad. Customer service is good, and their app is functional. As a "co-founder" (a.k.a. early adopter) I feel involved in their community of users/customers, and appreciate the way Tandem engages with us.
